Weight Distribution Shank With the Most Drop for Trunnion Bar System


I currently have a Reese 54990 weight distribution shank. My tow vehicle is a lifted Wrangler and I need the lower for the shank. What would be a good replacement shank with a lower mounting position for the Trunnion bar mount?


Expert Reply:

There are a couple weight distribution shanks you can use to replace your Reese 54990, though I was unable to find out exactly how much drop this shank had. But the two options that fit a 2" trailer hitch receiver and have the most drop for a trunnion bar system are:

- 15-3/4" Maximum Drop: Curt Weight Distribution Shank # C17125

- 7-5/8" Maximum Drop: Reese Weight Distribution Shank # RP3344

- 9" Maximum Drop: Curt Weight Distribution Shank # C17124

I have added links to video reviews of both shanks for you to check out as well.
