California Residents: Prop 65 Warning
2nd hitch I have purchased. extremely happy with the function and quality of both.
Have only made a few trips with the new hitch and one of my smaller trailers, but it’s obviously a game-changer. The trailer and truck are remarkably isolated from each other. Potholes, railroad tracks, tar strips, and more. The trailer bouncing is not transmitted into the truck anymore. The 8-1/2″ height adjustment is perfect to handle the wide range of trailers I have.
Amazing product. Frankly, this hitch is as professionally designed and quality built as they come! Don’t be surprised, it is a beast and worth it for anyone regularly hauling. My neck fatigue has been noticeably reduced since using this hitch. All the forward/back jerking is gone!
I purchased the 16k 4.5 to 7.5 drop hitch great improvement over the other hitch’s I’ve got thanks a lot for improving the ride quality of my truck .
Excellant hitch. I have 2 of them and they work flawlessly. They get rid of about 90 percent of the jarring of my enclosed trailer and car trailer. They are expensive, but worth it. My back doesnt smacked against the back rest of my seat. The worst roads I delt with this is on I94 and I43 thru Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Now with these hitches, I dont hurt any more.
I have purchased 2 of them. One for a 1990 GMC truck, and another for a 2019 Ford F350. It isnt a cheap or inexpensive hitch. But its well worth the money. It gets rid of 80 to 90 percent of the jarring you feel running down roads. It is easy to maintain, every so often you grease the pivot pin. The paint is very durable. The guy who usually answers the phone at shocker hitch is very knowledgeable and he will ask you for a few dimensions and when you get the hitch delivered you put the movable ball mount in their hitch, at the setting that he recommended and the trailer rides level just like it did before with the regular hitch. I would buy them again if I had to do it over again. They are well worth it. I have a small cigarette lighter powered air compressor to air up air bag when loaded up, so it can be adjusted anywhere on flat level ground. I think these hitches are excellent.
