Add air ride to your pickup & trailer with the 16,000 lbs towing capacity Shocker HD Air Receiver Hitch with combo multi-ball mount with both a 2″ hitch ball and a 2-5/16″ hitch ball with a 1/2″ to 3-1/2″ Drop. 16,000 lbs tow rating capacity and 1,600 lbs tongue weight. Instantly add air ride towing for your pickup and trailer. This shock absorbing hitch & ball mount cushions the ride.  Shocker HD air hitch provides the ultimate smooth ride. The Shocker Air is a miniature air suspension unit mounted between your truck and trailer. This Shock absorbing cushion hitch mounts by sliding into a standard receiver tube.  Works great on pickups like the GMC Sierra, Chevy Silverado 1500, 2500, 3500, Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon, Dodge Ram, Ford F150, F250, F350, F450, F550 Superduty, Toyota Tundra, Tacoma, Nissan Titan, Frontier and Honda Ridgeline.

The combo drop ball mount features welded hitch balls for superior strength and the combo ball mount comes in a clear zinc plated finish.

The 16K air bag sits under the receiver tube allowing a short distance of 10-inches between mounting pin and ball center. You will find the advantage of the Air Shocker is your ability to adjust air pressure for best ride and load control. Note: A Shocker HD with 2″ shank will not fit a 2-1/2″ receiver even with a sleeve. This is because trucks with a 2-1/2″ hitch have a deeper frame & the hitch that fits 2-1/2″ receiver is slightly deeper. However a Shocker with 2-1/2″ shank will fit a 3″ receiver with sleeve.

The Shocker HD is 16,000 lbs towing capacity and 1,600 lbs on tongue weight.

Quality Manufacturing: With the combo adjustable ball mount, the hitch balls are manufactured together – one piece construction for maximum strength and durability. Featuring a clear zinc finish for resistance to the elements.

Air Ride Hitch: Shocker Air is designed with a built-in air bag for a smoother towing experience. Featuring a built in height adjustment plus weight adjustable. Just add or ride air depending on the weight of your trailer and it’s contents.

Provide Comfort: With a smoother ride! Travel a lot on concrete highways? No more jarring every time you cross a section divider. Your Shocker air hitch absorbs the thumps and bumps.

Simple Pivot Design: uses a rocker arm pivot design which produces a down and back motion, much different than other air hitches on the market. Our design eliminates the need for slides, parallel linkages, rollers, shock absorbers, or multiple air bags common to other air hitches.

Improves Safety: By giving you improved control of your tow vehicle and trailer. The air bag receiver hitch system allows for better control of your pickup and the trailer it is towing.

Shock Dampening Action: Shocker air hitch effectively absorbs the jerking, tugging and damaging forces experienced with a typical hard connection when towing trailers. There is no reason to beat yourself or your equipment up with a hard connection between your trailer and your receiver hitch.

Saves Money: By reducing trailer breakage on both the trailer and the trailer contents! The Shocker hitch absorbs the damaging forces experienced with a typical hard connection. This greatly reduces the chances of breaking welds and doing other long term damage to your equipment as well as the valuable cargo you have inside the truck and trailer.

Adds Life To Your Vehicle: By reducing wear and tear on driveline and frame! Treat yourself, your equipment, and your passengers to a much smoother ride. You’ll never go back to the ‘old days’ of continual bumps, jerks, and vibrations. Join the list of satisfied customers that are using Shocker hitches. Order one today and get ready for your ultimate smooth towing experience the next time out.

Shocker HD Air Hitch Ball Mount Installation Instructions

The Shocker HD Air Bag Hitch ball mount is easy to install.  It comes complete with easy to understand instructions along with everything you need.  You can download the installation instructions or view the video below.

  • Note: A Shocker with 2″ shank will not fit a 2-1/2″ receiver even with a sleeve. This is because trucks with a 2-1/2″ hitch have a deeper frame & the hitch that fits 2-1/2″ receiver is slightly deeper. However a Shocker with 2-1/2″ shank will fit a 3″ receiver with sleeve.

Note: Always use a good hitch ball with the proper recommended tow weight.

Safety Notice: The Shocker Hitch is a heavy duty unit that in most cases exceeds factory receiver hitch weight capacities, therefore it is imperative that you always read and follow the tongue and towing weight recommendations of the receiver hitch that is mounted on your tow vehicle.

Note: A Shocker with 2″ shank will not fit a 2-1/2″ receiver even with a sleeve. This is because trucks with
a 2-1/2″ hitch have a deeper frame & the hitch that fits 2-1/2″ receiver is slightly deeper. However a
Shocker with 2-1/2″ shank will fit a 3″ receiver with sleeve.

Will the Shocker Air Bumper Hitch work with Equalizer or Weight-Distribution?  If you are just use sway bars that hook to a mini ball, then yes, if you order the combo sway control ball mount attachment  . If you have a equalizer or weight distribution hitch then it will not. However, check out our Air Equalizer for weight distribution hitches.

Shocker Air Installation: First you must compress the air bag. Do this by depressing air valve and pushing down on air bag.
Once the bag has been compressed, you can install the unit into the receiver tube. Next install hitch pin.

To Set Air: Hook up trailer using properly selected ball adaptor and height adjustment in order to a level trailer when loaded. Next, inflate the air bag. As air pressure increases, the unit will rotate lifting the hitch point. Install enough air to slightly compress top bushing or until bump stop clearance is approximately 1/8″.

Additional Set Up Notes:

  • When towing heavy trailers or trailers with high wind resistance it may be necessary to increase air pressure in the Shocker.
  • It is highly recommended that the hitch ball be greased to reduce wear and improve shocker action.
  • DO NOT TIGHTEN THE TOP BOLT, IT IS A LIMITER STOP ONLY.

Maximum Air Pressure: Do not exceed 100 psi in the air bag, as it may damage the air bag.

FAQ

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

How much air do I put in the Shocker Air Bumper Mount Receiver Hitch?
With your trailer hooked up to the tow vehicle, and loads positioned for transport, air up shocker until main frame rotates and lightly compresses top bushing (about 1/8″ of squeeze or pinch in the bushing). See our quick How To Set PSI in Shocker Bumper Hitch Video.

Will the Shocker Air Bumper Hitch work with Equalizer or Weight-Distribution?  If you are just use sway bars that hook to a mini ball, then yes, if you order the combo sway control ball mount attachment. If you have a equalizer or weight distribution hitch then it will not. However, check out our Air Equalizer for weight distribution hitches.  Note: If your pickup suspension can handle the weight of your trailer and doesn’t “squat” when you hook up your trailer to pickup, then you really don’t need a weight distribution hitch. A load leveling weight distribution hitch, distributes the weight between the pickup and trailer and is generally used if your pickup can’t handle the static trailer tongue weight load.

How long will it hold air? This is a sealed system that will hold air for weeks or months. If you haul the same trailer with the same load weight, it should be good for quite some time.

How long will the airbag last? Our airbags are an industrial bag and will last for years and years. They are similar to truck airbags but have been beefed up internally for our towing applications.

I have a 3″ receiver hitch? will this work?  Yes, you would order the air hitch with 2-1/2″ shank and then get a reducer sleeve that goes down from 3″ to 2 1/2″.

How do I know the Shocker Air receiver hitch will fit my truck?
We have made sure that the receiver air shocker will fit into most Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Toyota and SUV’s. There are some clearance issues with the Chevy Envoy, Ford Explorer, some imports and service body vehicles where the body extends below the receiver tube. The use of “reducer” sleeves on trucks with a 2 1/2″ receiver tube is not recommended. The Shocker Air receiver hitch is available in a 2″, 2 1/2″ & 3″ shank. Please indicated which vehicle you intend to use the hitch with, make/model/year and we will attempt to get you a great fitting hitch.

Note: A Shocker with 2″ shank will not fit a 2-1/2″ receiver even with a sleeve. This is because trucks with
a 2-1/2″ hitch have a deeper frame & the hitch that fits 2-1/2″ receiver is slightly deeper. However a
Shocker with 2-1/2″ shank will fit a 3″ receiver with sleeve.

How far below my pickup does the receiver air shocker hang?
Five inches below bottom of receiver tube.

How often do I grease it?
The grease does not just lube the pivot; it also keeps water and dirt out. You cannot over grease it, once every few months should do it.

Does the receiver air hitch work like or with an equalizer hitch?
No.

Does the receiver air hitch work with sway bars?
Yes, it works with the friction style sway control, however you want to order one of the ballmount attachments that has the sway tabs installed.

How does the Receiver hitch work?
The Receiver air shocker is like a teeter totter. One end is an air bag, a pivot in the middle, and a ball at the other end. This gives a “pillow” effect at the ball end.

Should I tighten up the top jam nut on the receiver shocker?
No. The air shocker needs at least one half inch of play to work properly.

How much does an Shocker Air bag receiver hitch weigh?
The Receiver Air Shocker weighs 40 pounds
