My truck has a 2-1/2" receiver. I already owned a heavy duty 2" hitch. This 2" reducer & extender was perfect for my use. I used it to tow a rental trailer and needed to extend my receiver to allow me to tow with the tailgate down. This reducer/extender did the trick. I had plenty of room making tight u-turns. The quality of the product is very good. I would recommend this product to others.

Product is very high quality. There was a small shipping delay, but etrailer was excellent at keeping me informed of the delay and when to expect product. I am very satisfied with the purchase.

This heavy duty extension is going to work perfect for towing my boat behind my truck and camper. This is just what I needed. The quality is superb. I found a similar product on Amazon but the reviews were poor and the quality looked inferior to the e-trailer product.

I purchased this to use on my 2500HD to transition from the factory 2.5" receiver to a 2" so that we could use a Yakima hitch mounted bike rack. With the length of the tube, it also provides the perfect amount of clearance from the back of the truck so that I can lower the tailgate without it hitting the upright on the bike rack. Great product and always pleased with etrailer's customer service!

Products delivered quickly and function al

Should work great, well built. Now I can lower my tailgate when towing. Just be sure not to overload your tongue weight capacity. This particular extender will reduce tongue weight capacity by 1/3.

It looks like a good product and does exactly what I needed to tow my camper with the tailgate down with motorcycle in truck!

We can now haul our golf cart with the tailgate (on our Chevy HD 2500 6'-6" bed) down and still pull our Apex 24' travel trailer. Before we would need to remove the tailgate. Our truck hitch is a class 5 rated at 13,500 lbs. and our trailer fully loaded is 5964 lbs. We only needed to extend our 7- pin cord ,the breakaway brake cable and safety chains.

Did exactly what I needed. New truck 2.5” receiver and 2” bike rack. This was perfect length. Allows me to fully drop tailgate without hitting. I have a Kuat NV2.0. No wiggles no coming loose no rattle. Ashley was awesome and got it out to me ASAP. Love etrailer.

I pull an 8,000lb camper with a 900lb hitch weight. I us an equalizer hitch, and after adding this extender (F250 has 2 1/2" hitch) I'm able to fully open my tailgate that was previously hitting the front jack. I don't notice in difference in pulling, even on the freeway at 75 mph. Made heavy duty, would recommend.

Perfect as hitch extender for Thule bike rack on a large receiver.

exactly what I needed to clear my tailgate and serve as a reducer



- HR26
by:

Would have liked to have had 3” to 2.5” to fit my F350. With an adaptor it will work fine. I think quality is very nice but the price is really high for what it is. It did solve my problem of loading ATV in bed of truck with tailgate open and still hook up my bumper pull trailer.

Product arrived early which allowed us to use our bike rack for the weekend. Fits a Ford Super Duty 2.5” hitch as stated.

I used this extender to entendres my weight distribution hitch for my travel trailer. It worked great. It allows me to leave my tailgate down without any chance of damaging it. Plenty of radius when turning. I allowed 1/3 weight reduction on my hitch from 3300 lbs to 2200 lbs which still allowed the 600 lb trailer tongue weight well in the safe range to operate. I have to leave the tailgate down to haul my golf cart in my short bed Ram truck.

Well built and strong. I think I ordered the 8 inch but I wish there was other size options. With 8 inch hitch on my 6000 pound trailer I felt lots of clunking back there while towing on Mtn roads. I may cut the adapter shorter and re-drill the hole. I only needed 4-5 inches so my tailgate would open with my old camper. I also bought hitch clamps from hits clam.com which helped.

Exactly what I needed. Extends my hitch back 7 inches. Good quality.

Built very well and did exactly as I expected. I had a 2015 GMC 2500HD pulling a Cougar travel trailer. I purchased the extension so I could haul a golf cart in my truck while towing the travel trailer. It gave me the additional room I needed and the ride was comparable. Turns out I had to remove the propane tanks on the trailer as well to get the full clearance but it would not have been possible without this extension. Used it for a full season with no issues at all before I bought a 5th wheel toy hauler. Very handy item.

This is perfect for my use! I have a 1 ton truck with a 2.5 in hitch and I needed something to allow me to to attached a Thule TX2 pro bike rack more solidly than the factory hitch 2.5 to 2 in sleeve. This extended helped by allowing a secure attachment point to the receiver and a second point for the rack. It's now very secure and I can haul the family bikes without worry of the sleeve coming out.



- HR26
by:

Works as intended. Needed to extend the hitch just a few inches so the tailgate of my truck would not hit the trailer tongue jack. Needed the higher rating of this unit for my 8000# trailer. I only give 3-stars because after only 1/2 a Michigan winter it is already badly rusted. I will have to have it blasted & repainted in the Spring.

What I need but a little too expensive.

After 1 year of frequent towing and hitch changes, this hitch lock is still working well!

Extension works really well I pull my 34 foot bumper pull camper with it. My rzr fits in my truck with the tail gate down. Use good quality hitch pins I bent one and found out I had not a good quality one. Very happy with this extension.
