If anybody needs to get a new shank, I do not think there is anything special about them, that requires being true to the brand.

The shank that came with my Equal-I-zer did not give enough drop, due to my receiver being integrated into the frame/bumper, pretty high. I ordered a Curt shank from with 5-3/4" drop for about $70.
I just checked, and they have 2.5" shanks for:
-Curt 3-3/4 drop, $132
-Equal-I-zer 3" or 4" drop, $140
-Reese Titan 5-3/4" drop, $149
-Equalizer 6" drop, $155
-Blue Ox, 2.5" drop, $175 (yikes!!)

If the 2.5" drop from Blue Ox will work for you, I'd save $43 and get the Curt.
