Review of Blue Ox Hitch Accessories BX88265


Today we'll be reviewing part number BX88265, this is the Blue Ox Hitch Extender for Tow Bars. This is designed to fit a 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. The receiver opening that this provides is going to be 2 inches by 2 inches. The hitch extender is going to remove your receiver opening back, that way you can provide some clearance for rear-mounted accessories. You can also use this for flat tow applications. You can really use it for anything hitch related, as long as you do not exceed the maximum ton weight capacity, which is going to be rated at 1,000 pounds.

It's going to offer a maximum towing capacity of 10,000 pounds. It's made from a sturdy steel construction, featuring a corrosion resistant black powdercoat finish, and the 5/8 inch pin and clip are included. If we take a few measurements, measuring from the center of the closest pin hole to the center of the pin hole of the receiver, that's going to give us a measurement from center to center of 6 and 3/4 of an inch. If we measure from the center of the receiver pin hole to the back pin hole location, center to center it's going to be 8 and 3/4 of an inch, so the distance between these 2 pin holes is going to measure right at 2 inches. From the rearmost pin hole to the back of the shank is going to measure 1 inch. From this pin hole to the back of the shank center on center is going to measure 3 inches.

The overall length is going to give us a measurement of 12 and 1/2 inches. The way this installs is you would just take the shank portion here, which is a nice solid, heavy duty shank, slide it into the receiver tube of your hitch. You choose the pin hole location that you need, and then you can install the included pin and clip. Once you have these installed, you should be set to go and get loaded up and get on your way. That's going to do it for today's review of part number BX88265, this is the Blue Ox Hitch Extender for Tow Bars. .
