Shocker air drop hitch adds instant air ride towing to your pickup and trailer. The Shocker Air Bag Receiver Hitch with adjustable drop ball mount comes with a 2″ or 2-5/16″ hitch ball with a 4-1/2″ to 7-1/2″ Drop. 12,000 lbs tow rating capacity and 1,200 lbs tongue weight. The built in airbag cushions the hitch and absorbing the bumps, jerks, tugs and road shock with you are towing. Shocker air with drop hitch provides the ultimate smooth ride for taller pickups. The Shocker Air is a miniature air suspension unit mounted between your truck and trailer. This Shocker mounts by sliding into a standard receiver tube. The Shocker air with drop ball mount is great for taller pickup trucks. This shock absorbing hitch is a must have for smoother trailer towing.

The air bag sits under the receiver tube allowing a short distance of 10-inches between mounting pin and ball center. You will find the advantage of the Air Shocker is your ability to adjust air pressure for best ride and load control. Plus the drop range is great for higher than stock pickup trucks.

Fits Pickup Trucks.

  • Note: A Shocker with 2″ shank will not fit a 2-1/2″ receiver even with a sleeve. This is because trucks with a 2-1/2″ hitch have a deeper frame & the hitch that fits 2-1/2″ receiver is slightly deeper. However a Shocker with 2-1/2″ shank will fit a 3″ receiver with sleeve.

Choose from the Original Shocker Air and the Shocker HD. Original is rated at 12,000 lbs towing capacity and 1,200 lbs tongue weight. The Shocker HD is 16,000 lbs towing capacity and 1,600 lbs on tongue weight.

Air Ride Hitch: Shocker Air is designed with a built-in air bag for a smoother towing experience. Featuring a built in height adjustment plus weight adjustable. Just add air depending on the weight of your trailer and it’s contents.

Shock Dampening Action: Shocker air hitch effectively absorbs the jerking, tugging and damaging forces experienced with a typical hard connection when towing trailers. There is no reason to beat yourself or your equipment up with a hard connection between your trailer and your receiver hitch.

Provide Comfort: With a smoother ride! Travel a lot on concrete highways? No more jarring every time you cross a section divider. Your Shocker air hitch absorbs the thumps and bumps.

Simple Pivot Design: uses a rocker arm pivot design which produces a down and back motion, much different than other air hitches on the market. Our design eliminates the need for slides, parallel linkages, rollers, shock absorbers, or multiple air bags common to other air hitches.

Improves Safety: By giving you improved control of your tow vehicle and trailer. The air bag receiver hitch system allows for better control of your pickup and the trailer it is towing.

Saves Money: By reducing trailer breakage on both the trailer and the trailer contents! The Shocker hitch absorbs the damaging forces experienced with a typical hard connection. This greatly reduces the chances of breaking welds and doing other long term damage to your equipment as well as the valuable cargo you have inside the truck and trailer.

Adds Life To Your Vehicle: By reducing wear and tear on driveline and frame! Treat yourself, your equipment, and your passengers to a much smoother ride. You’ll never go back to the ‘old days’ of continual bumps, jerks, and vibrations. Join the list of satisfied customers that are using Shocker hitches. Order one today and get ready for your ultimate smooth towing experience the next time out.

    Q Can u turn the drop around to make it a raise? answer now
    A No, the drop mount's strength is design for it to be used normally, not flipped around. We do have raised mounts you can get for that.

  1. Works really well. If you have the means I recommend it.

    – David Taylor
  2. We recently purchased our second Shocker a hitch. We first purchased in 2014, this hitch has been nothing short of exceptional. Our recent and second purchase was due to an upgrading a trailer size and heavy capacity. Very pleased with the quality of both units and well worth the cost for the improved ride and reduced wear on our truck. CS has been more than helpful in both purchases and lightning quick shipping.

    – Rhonda & Brad Culpitt
  3. My hitch is pretty trick. I have had every hitch type made in the usa, and a few from Canada and Europe. This air system type hitch I purchased is my favorite. I will be purchasing another.

    Regards

  4. Great receiver. Quietest hitch I have every used, because of the airbag it has a tight fit (no clunks or rattles). The airbag cushions the link between truck and trailer. I tow a 17 ft horse trailer that empty weights 4000 lbs. It is also tongue heavy at 1000 lbs when empty. The hitch dampens the bounce I get when towing the empty trailer. When the horses are loaded the trailer weights in around 6500 lbs and is better balanced. The hitch continues to smooth the ride. The horses seem to be more relaxed after a trip in the trailer now.

    – Brent
  5. Great product. So much smoother towing.

  6. very well made and works well

  7. I hooked it up to my trailer and pulled it for about 50 miles . I couldn’t believe the difference in the smooth pulling. I’ve trailered a lot of miles and i wish i bought the Shocker along time ago. Im ordering a gooseneck shockerASAP. TONY R
