Shocker Hitch Trailer Hitch Ball Mount - Impact Max Cushioned Adjustable 2" - SHK34RR Review


Hi, everybody. Andy here with etrailer.com. And today, we're gonna take a look at this Shocker impact max cushioned adjustable drop ball mount for your 2-inch hitch receiver. Now, this shock-absorbing ball mount uses two rubber bumpers to provide a steady towing experience while towing your camper or boat trailer. And it will dampen road shock and help reduce rattle when you are towing over rough terrain and help absorb and isolate vibration. So this is going to be great for your trucks, your SUVs, and your CUVs.

And this hooks your trailer to your tow vehicle with this included adjustable drop ball mount attachment that has a 2 and 5/16-inch hitch ball. This is made here in the USA of a grade 50 steel plate construction and cold rolled steel shank to give you maximum durability. And this has a gross towing weight of 20,000 pounds and a tongue weight of 2000 pounds. But it is important to remember that a towing setup is always limited by its lowest-rated component, whether that be your vehicle, your hitch, or another component. Now, as you see here, this does include two easy-to-remove pins, and we have these large rings that are gonna be very easy to grasp.

As you can see, I can fit four of my fingers through each of those rings, so you're not gonna have to worry about fumbling with small hitch pin heads. And then, these large safety clips here are going to make securing the clips very easy. This channel-style ball mount offers a maximum drop of about 7-inches and a minimum drop of about 4-inches. So this is going to let you tow trailers of various heights. And the inside width of this channel, we're sitting right at about 3 and 3/4-inches across.

And the distance between our vertical adjustment holes that we have right here, they are sitting about an inch on center. Now you can mount any Shocker Hitch accessory, including their pintle hook, their clevis pin, and drawbar attachments into the channel to hook up to even more trailers. Of course, all of those attachments are sold separately from this, but you can find them under the related product section on this product page. Now, unlike other shock-absorbing systems that use airbags, which require you to consistently add or remove air, this impact max is nearly maintenance-free. You just need to grease it up with this zerk fitting here on the side, and then you are ready to go.

This is shot blasted and powder coated to help prevent against rust and corrosion. And our 2 and 5/16-inch hitch ball is zinc plated. So again, this is going to fit your 2-inch trailer hitch receiver, and the hitch pinhole diameter is 5/8 of an inch. I do wanna point out that a pin and clip is sold separately. This does not include a pin and clip, so if you do not already have a compatible pin and clip, you would have to pick one up. However, since this is really an investment that you are making in this mount, I would recommend taking a look at the infiniterule locking pins for Shocker Hitch ball mounts for 2-inch and 2 and 1/2-inch hitches. Included with that are three pins, two to lock and secure your attachment to the mount here and then another pin to secure this whole unit to your trailer hitch receiver. If you're interested in checking those out, I am including our item number to those locking pins on your screen. You can just take that item number and put it in the search field of our website, and it will take you to those locking pins so you can secure this to your trailer hitch receiver. Now the overall height is going to be right at about 10-inches tall, and the distance from the farthest hitch pin hole to the middle of our ball is right at about 11 and 3/4-inches. And as you can see on your screen, I am including a diagram with some additional measurements for you that might prove helpful for you. You can also find this diagram on this product page. Well, that's gonna conclude our look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..
