If you've ever wanted to hook up a hitch mounted cargo carrier onto your vehicle but found the hitch wasn't long enough to clear the rear-mounted spare tire, this hitch extender is the handy solution. The 2" to 2" hitch receiver extension lengthens a hitch by 8-1/2" for more room between the vehicle and hitch mounted accessory and is also useful when the receiver on your vehicle is located too far beneath the bumper. This hitch extender fits a Class III or Class IV receiver.

Extends existing hitch an additional 8-1/2" for improved clearance
Fits 2" Class III and Class IV receivers
Integrated anti-tilt locking bolt
Weight capacity of 500 lb tongue and 5,000 lb towing
The 2" to 2" hitch receiver extension lengthens a hitch for more room between a vehicle and hitch mounted accessories. Provides an additional 8-1/2" to an existing Class III or IV receiver tube. Constructed from steel with a black powder coat finish.

Great for vehicles with a rear-mounted spare tire or a hitch receiver located well under the bumper. An integrated anti-tilt hole and 9/16" bolt prevents a carrier from rattling in its receiver. The steel constructed hitch receiver extension has a black powder coat finish.

I purchased this extender so the rear window on my suv uwill open. Looks like a well made product. Delivery was well before the estimated time of delivery. Only problem I have found is the nut attached to the extender to help with the fit was not cleaned out after welding it on. Had to work with it to clean it out.

I drive a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, which when it comes to using a hitch... is somewhat limited. The problem is when I use my motorcycle carrier or cargo carrier or even boat trailer, the spare tire mounted on the tailgate is in the way. It's particularly bad for motorcycles. This hitch extender is the perfect solution as it extends whatever device you are hitching away from the receiver about the same width as the spare tire. This particular extender has a built in bolt that when tightened properly, secures your carrier and keeps it from shifting it's weight back and forth... a phenomenon that can be unsettling at highway speeds.
Not only is it a great item, well made and much stronger than you'd ever need... Discount Ramps is the place to buy it. I purchased through their store on Ebay. I had a few questions about the product which were promptly answered by Discountramps.com customer service department. The products are great, delivery was fast and customer service was friendly and helpful... what more could anyone want? Thank you, DiscountRamps,com. I'll be back.

I bought this to use on a Traverse since the hitch doesn't extend beyond the bumper. I just wish it had the weight limits on the extension.

I was looking for a hitch extender in order to get clearance past my Jeep spare tire for a hitch mounted bike rack. This does the trick. Not quite as snug as I had hoped, hence the reason for 4 stars. Could be more of a flaw in my hitch and an easy fix once I pick up a stabilizer bracket. Delivered very promptly. Free shipping is always nice.

Fantastic extender. Not too long for front hitch . Does not stick way out in front. Gets connector from under truck making it easier to hook up. Has the anti-sag bolt so extender stays high. Best extender I have found yet!

This product will be used to provide clearance for bicycle rack behind our new Jeep and will work perfectly for that purpose. However, the threads in the nut which receives the anti-tilt locking bolt for this particular item were slightly obstructed by overflow from the welding process. We made one simple phone call to a very polite and helpful lady at the number listed on the invoice and a replacement was sent without question. We were only asked to send a picture of the old item for their use in improving the manufacturing process; which we were happy to do.

The extender gets my bike rack out past the spare tire on my Jeep. Now we can take our bicycles with us when we go out in the motor home.

Purchased to extend a mobility chair transport rack to keep it from hitting the lift gate of our 2014 Subaru outback. Works perfect, and doesn't loosen or rattle while driving long distances. Great price, free shipping, quality product.

Just the solution for extending the hitch so the tow bar would clear the motor home when in the stowed position. A lot cheaper than a new dingy tow bar.

Needed to extend cargo carrier about 6" to allow access to the rear of my FJ Cruiser. This item fit the bill perfectly. I originally reviewed the wrong item (1.25 to 2" extension) as it should have been the 2" to 2" x 8". This item is a perfect fit for my needs, was priced in line with what I was willing to pay, was received when committed, and so for I would have no issues with doing repeat business with Discount Ramps. Their price was more than competitive and free shipping on the item was a definite plus. Thanks to all!
