I don't know what it is worth to you and some others may tell you/me/us it is not possible but......
I have the equalizer hitch and on my set up I had to get a drop shank because my truck sits too high for the standard shank. I have a few inches of extra shank that hangs off the bottom, my dealer told me I could get the extra unneeded shank trimmed off the bottom to give me a few extra inches of clearance. I do not know the safety issues associated with this or even if there are any, I personally probably wont cut it only because I have plenty of clearance so far but I will keep it open as an option if I do need extra clearance as I tow places and use it more. If your shank has room to trim it might be worthwhile to research and see if it can be done.
Has anyone heard of this as an option, or is the install guy blowing smoke?
