I went with the 2.5x2.5 shank to eliminate the 2.5x2.0 bushing. Needed the extra holes the 9 hole provided to pull level. Great 3 day response time. Give these people a chance to earn your business.


Comments
Works as expected, eliminating long, hole line up time during hitch change out. Waiting on a 3 shank to eliminate bushings altogether. When it comes out Ill be buying one from here.

This shank allowed me to level my trailer with a new 3/4 pickup, as they get bigger every few years, and it allows me to forget the hassle of lining up the holes in the receiver with a 2" shank and adapter for a 2 1/2" receiver. With the weight and bulk of hitches this small improvement is quite nice.




by:

This adapter allowed me to use my existing weight distribution hitch in my new truck.




by:

Did not work. Because the back was not smooth the bolt would not hold my hitch connection tight. Didn’t have time to return because I was going to an out of state job and because the paint was scratched. Its just laying on the floor at home never to be used.




by:

Wow they always have what you need at a great price delivered promptly. The website is very design and easy to navigate. And the folks there are like good neighbors. Thank you once again you make traveling with my Airstream that much more enjoyable!

Instead of needing a new hitch when I upsized my vehicle they had just the right parts to make going from 2” to 2-1/2” a painless and budget friendly.




by:

The part arrived sooner than anticipated and was exactly what I was looking for, great service, both customer and information wise, very happy with my experience at etrailer.com, it will be the first place I go for future replacement parts.




by:

Received on date promised and product looks great. Great company to work with


Comments
Works great upgraded to a 2020 Ford F250 with a 2 12 receiver and needed the larger hitch bar.

Trying to buy a product that's unfamiliar to me was daunting,but your staff was very informative and so helpful that it made the process easier than I thought, I would highly recommend etrailer to all my friends, thanks again




by:

Great experience. Ordered around 11pm and they fulfilled the order within about 15 minutes and had it packaged with a label another 10 minutes after that, based on their tracker. I paid for expedited 2 day delivery and received it a day earlier than expected. Best online ordering experience I’ve had.




by:

No more of the rattle I experienced when using the 2” to 2 1/2” adapter on my RAM 2500.




by:

If you have 2.5" shank receiver tow hitch in a 3/4 ton truck like my Ram 2500, this part fits much tighter and is safer all around as compared to using an adapter to make a 2" receiver shaft fit a 2.5" hitch. Less wear, less noise, better control. It is also very well build with excellent finish and the proper sized pin. And etrailer service is the BEST!

Still PERFECT!

by:

Worked great got my 22 Ram 2500!




by:

Great option and definitely a superior option to a 2” bar and a sleeve. Quality and utility are great.




by:

I needed additional drop on my Blue Ox weight distribution hitch when I bought a RAM Powerwagon. This longer shank worked perfectly! An added plus was the 2 1/2 inch shank that was the same as my receiver hitch. No more adapter that rattles all the time. My trailer now sits level. Thank you.




by:

This was just as described. I upgraded my truck to a 2500 and found the 2" tongue hitch that came with my tow package would not lower enough to make my travel trailer level. This dropped it about 3 more inches which worked perfect. It also allows for more tongue weight which is very nice.




by:

Enables us to use our existing Blue Ox Swaypro on our new truck with a 2 1/2” receiver instead of using an adapter. Also, we needed to lower the hitch ball because the truck is higher than previous vehicle. It worked great.




by:

Customer support was very helpful and knowledgeable to ensure I was getting correct part, ordering process was simple and shipping time was relatively quick.




by:

Ordering from these guys is a breeze. Products arrive quickly and on time. I had to get this distribution shank to switch ball for R/V to another truck. All parts fit. Have a couple of LONG Hauls with it. Everything worked as expected.




by:

Received my Blue Ox 2.5” shank in record time, at a very competitive price and better yet, free shipping on a item that weighed 28 pounds! Etrailer is the first place I look for any of my RV parts etc.




by:

Fast delivery and showed up without damage have not had a chance to use it yet. thank you




by:

Very pleased. I replaced my F150 with an F250 and needed a 2.5 inch shank. etrailer delivered quickly and at a fair price
