Trailer hitch adapter/reducer

Recommended Posts

Well, the new truck is getting used for it’s intended purpose,but, ran into a snag last week heading up to Merritt to pickup my travel trailer and meet my hunting partners.

Oldtimers  kicked in I guess and I left the trailer hitch adapter in the receiver without a pin in it.

it takes the 2 1/2 receiver down to 2 inch to fit all my hitches(this adapter comes with the truck from the factory).

The adapter ended up on the road somewhere.

I was fortunate to be able to borrow one in Merritt .

When I got home I grabbed another one at my local dealership,it was only $30 with my wholesale account.

I am thinking of putting 2 small tack welds on the piece so I don’t have this issue again but they would be put in a place

that would be easy to grind out. 

Shouldn’t need to as I don’t use any hitch items that are 2 1/2 inch .

The pins would still fit perfectly for all my hitches that I use..

Thought??

I used an oring I had laying around and drove it home when it pinched between the tubing. When I upgraded to the 2.5” receiver, I had to drive it out. 
 

IIRC it was a 1/16 thick buna 70 material. 2.25” ID From memory.

I just bought the 2.5 stinger for my Anderson set up , a bit longer than a standard one ( lil more trailer swing clearance that way)
