If you are looking for a 2" receiver to 2" receiver extender rated for at least 5,000 lbs we have the Roadmaster Anti-Rattle Hitch Extender # RM-071-1075. This has a 7-3/4" extension with a 10,000 lb gross trailer weight rating and a 400 lb tongue weight rating. Keep in mind that using an extender like this will reduce the tongue weight of your trailer hitch by 50%.

Because of this I recommend looking into using a ball mount that has an extended shank like the Brophy Ball Mount # BH20 which is 13-1/4" long and has a gross towing weight of 10,000 lbs and a tongue weight of 1,000 lbs. This option does not come with a pin and clip or a hitch ball. you can use part # PC3 for a pin and clip or part # C23519 for a locking hitch pin.

For a hitch ball you can use part # A-90 for a 2" hitch ball or part # 19286 for a 2-5/16" hitch ball.

Review videos for the extender and the ball mount have been attached for you to reference.
