Longest Weight Distribution Shank for a 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver  


I am looking for the Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank - 18inch Long to fit a 2-1/2inch Hitch. I need the 18inch so I can tow with my tailgate down and Id really like the 2-1/2inch Hitch so it fits my 2017 f-250 with out the 2inch . Unfortunately, I only see the 18inch with the 2inch hitch size.

All of the Equal-I-Zer 2-1/2 inch weight distribution shanks are 12 inches long. The Equal-I-Zer weight distribution head will also fit Reese shank # RP54976 which is 15 inches long but there are no 2-1/2 inch options that are 18 inches long.

What you could do is install the Tork Lift Super Hitch Magnum, # TLF1008-30, on your 2017 Ford F-250 and then use the SuperTruss extension, # TLE1521. The extension is 21 inches and when used with weight distribution it is rated for 14,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 1,400 pounds tongue weight.
