Hitch Pin Mushrooming receiver

Just noticed my locking hitch pin is getting my hitch mushroomed on one side from movement and 70-80 degree bend. (to keep from sliding through) F250 2017 diesel with 2 1/2 inch hitch and with 2 inch sleeve. I need a 12 inch drop on my WDH and cannot find a 2 1/2 inch receiver with a 12 inch drop. No mods to increase truck height. This is a standard F250 Diesel King Ranch with 20 inch factory tires.

Way to much hitch movement with this setup but cannot find a 2 1/2 inch receiver with a 12 1/2 inch drop. 1450 hitch weight with 11,000 pound trailer loaded.

Help or suggestions would be well received. I checked with E trailer and googled with no results.

Jack

Curt makes quite a few drop hitches. You might want to contact them directly.

My WAG on this is WD hitch Not set properly! When WD is set and pressure transferred for Proper Sway Control there is NO "Movement/Slop/Hammering" at the retaining Pin area,that would cause "Mushrooming/Elongation/"! If you are just pulling without WD/SC your Stinger is the Hammer! Youroo!!

My equalizer hitch was ovaling the hutch pin hole on my 2500 with a 2.5 hitch. The adapter was the issue as it allowed to much slop. I found that etrailer had a 2.5 drop hitch that had the 2" holes for the head. No more ovaling out...
Edit: mine was made by equalizer and was bout 150$

You are correct. I need to brush up on my reading comprehension.

Maybe you can try a hitch vise
