Add instant air ride to your pickup and trailer with this heavy-duty air ride bumper drop hitch. The Shocker HD 16K 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. This Shocker HD air drop hitch & ball mount has 16,000 lbs tow rating capacity and 1,600 lbs tongue weight. Shocker air provides the ultimate smooth ride with air ride technology. The HD air bag is built in to cushion the ride and absorb the road shock taking the bangs, bumper and jerks out of your towing experience.  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.

The HD 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 HD 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 standard 2″ receiver tube, 2 1/2″ and 3″ receivers. The HD shocker is made for heavy-duty towing. Great for contractors, tag motor homes & horse trailers, big boats and more.

Simple Pivot Design: uses a rocker arm pivot design which produces a down and back motion, much different than other air ride 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.

Shock Dampening Action: Shocker HD 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.

Note: A Shocker HD 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.

The Shocker HD is 16,000 lbs towing capacity and 1,600 lbs on tongue weight. Note: With a 2″ receiver hitch ball, your tow weight rating is 10,000 lbs and $1,000 lbs of tongue weight.

Air Ride Hitch: Shocker HD 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 or ride air depending on the weight of your trailer and it’s contents.

Made for Pickup Trucks: Great for  GMC Sierra, Chevy Silverado, Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon, Dodge Ram, Ford F150, F250, F350, F450, F550 Superduty, Toyota Tundra, Tacoma, Titan, Frontier and Honda Ridgeline pickup trucks.

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.

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.

Customer Reviews

  1. 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 .

    – Steven Roosa
  2. 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.

  3. 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.
