The reducers can be a pain when sliding the hitch in as now you have to line up two sets of holes for your pin. If you aren't ever going to use a 2.5 hitch, you can just tack weld the reducer sleeve in place. I added a 2.5 Reese Titan to my 09 F250 as my Arctic Fox had a Reese Dual Cam setup with a 2.5 hitch. When I sold it for our last trailer, I went to an Equalizer as they are MUCH easier to set up and hook up. It only had a 2" hitch so I tacked the sleeve in place. All was fine in 2500 miles last year...


I had not throught of how difficult it would be to align. I see that Eqalizer makes a 2.5" shank to fit. Might go that route.

Yes, that works too. (Cheapest place to buy one is RV Wholesalers.) It wasn't hard when just sliding a regular light weight ball mount it with the sleeve. But, with a heavy solid wd mount, it was a bit of a pain.
