Recommended Hitch Extender for Clearing Truck Camper on 2015 GMC Sierra 3500


TLD1104 This part number appears to be for the Ram, and not for my GMC HD3500 4WD 6-1/2 ft truck. I have the factory towing package, but would like to use the Torklift SuperTruss extender to get 37-40 inch extension when I have my truck camper on. The intended tow is a 4000 lb Jeep flat-towed with BlueOx tow bar and brake controller. Alternatively, would the Titan Hitch Box Extension for 2-1/2inch Trailer Hitches, 41inch - 48inch Long RP45018 be adequate? Im really not eager to replace my existing Torklift tie-down brackets and FastGun tie downs at the rear.

If you are wanting to use the TorkLift SuperTruss Hitch Extension # TLE1548 referenced in your question, you will indeed need to have a TorkLift Trailer Hitch Installed on your 2015 GMC Sierra 3500. For your truck, we do have the TorkLift SuperHitch Original Trailer Hitch Receiver # TLC1212 available. This dual-receiver hitch is confirmed to fit your Sierra 3500 with the 6-1/2 foot bed and has a maximum towing capacity of 17,000 pounds.

Once installed, the TorkLift SuperTruss HItch Extension # TLE1548 will work great to give you 48 inches of additional length to clear your truck camper when towing your Jeep Wrangler. This extender features a heavy-duty design, built-in hookup loops for safety chains and an electrical bracket for mounting your 7-Way connector.

The Titan Hitch Box Extension # RP45018 you also referenced is another great option as long as you have a 2-1/2 inch receiver on your Sierra 3500. If you do have the required receiver size already installed, this will be the easier option for clearing your truck camper. This extender will give you 41 or 48 inches of extra length and will also reduce the 2-1/2 inch receiver opening to a standard 2 inch receiver on the other side. This has a 5,000 pound towing capacity when used with the 41 inch extension length and a 4,000 pound capacity at the 48 inch length.

I have attached video demonstrations and installation details for the products mentioned that you can also check out.
