Question Shank Replacement on a New Truck

Hi guys, New again with camping and changing out from an SUV to a full size GMC Sierra . I have a Jayco jay Feaher x17z Hybrid and was towing it for a few weeks until I got my truck. I have the Husky TS Centerline WD system.
The 4 inches in height is where my problem is...my Shank is a 6 hole 12x6 and I only have 2 holes on the bottom left (already flipped) that will get me about an inch...any ideas I plan to get some camping in next weekend .Im located near the Ann Arbor Mi area..I dont want to drive all the was to Saginaw where
I bought the Trailer and WD system to fix it..I think I need a Longer drop maybe a 12x8 that I can change out my Husky WD hookup ...any and all ideas would be helpful...

Bob from Brighton

Try General RV in Wixom, they have a large parts department. Otherwise try etrailer.com they seem to have about everything one could need and they ship fast out of MO.

X2 think about $50. My issue was raising the ball but same fix. I ordered a shank with more adjustment holes. I tow with a Chevy 2500 which is a few inches taller than my previous 1500. Had to take the whole thing to a tire shop to knock the bolts loose and to retork the bolts.
