1996 Dodge Questions and Answers


  • What is Needed to Wire a Brake Controller on a 1996 Dodge Ram Pickup
  • If your 1996 Dodge Ram has the factory 7-way connector at the rear of the vehicle, then all of the wires for the brake controller have been run. You will just need a brake controller wiring adapter. I recommend using part # 3020-P and cutting off the black plug. This adapter plugs into the brake controller plug under the dash, to the left of the steering column taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal. The four pigtail wires on the other end will be butt-connected to the...

  • Is the 10-2-1 Jacketed 10 Gauge Wire Stranded or Solid Construction
  • The wire in the Jacketed 2 Wire, 10 Gauge, Brake Wire, item # 10-2-1, is stranded, and designed for automotive applications. The temperature rating on the coating is 221 degrees Fahrenheit. This allows for use of the wire for up to 40 amps at up to 25 feet. This is the wire we use to wire the brake output wire and the 12 volt power wire when installing the Brake Controller 7 & 4 Way Installation Kit, item # ETBC7, and a brake controller on vehicles that do not have an existing 7-way...

  • What is the Difference Between Bevel Gear Kits # F0933302S00 and # F0933306S00
  • The main difference between the Replacement Bevel Gear Kit # F0933302S00 and the Fulton Bevel Gear Kit # F0933306S00 is the applications. The # F0933306S00 will fit the following Fulton jack models: TJ1055, TJ1057, TJ1222, TJ1255, TJD125, TJ122F, XP15/L/W/WC and XPF15L, whereas the # F0933302S00 will fit the following Fulton jack models: TJ503/C, TJU503, PMJ53, TJ507/C, PMJ75, CS750, GR700/TJ712, XP10/6/W/WC and XP100.

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control Hitch for 27ft Dutchman Classic Towed by 1996 Dodge 2500
  • Selecting a properly-tuned weight distribution/sway control system requires that your hitch be rated for this application - it will say so on its safety sticker - and that you know your trailer's fully-loaded ready-to-tow tongue weight. The linked article offers several methods to measure tongue weight (TW) including the Sherline scale # 5780. To the loaded trailer's measured TW you need to add the weight of anything in the truck that sits behind the tow vehicle's rear axle, such as filled...

  • Which Front Mount Hitch fits a 1996 Dodge Ram 2500
  • Draw-Tite part # 65017 is for a Ford Ranger, Ford Explorer, Mazda B-Series truck or Mazda Navajo. We have two front mount hitches for a 1996 Dodge Ram pickup. We have Draw-Tite part # 65003 and Curt part # 31604. To install either of these front mount hitches, you will need to either trim or remove the front air dam or deflector.

  • Which Hitch Classes will the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System # RP66084 Work On
  • The reason this Strait-Line Weight Distribution System # RP66084 says it is only rated for Class II and IV hitches is because this system is designed to be used on a hitch with a 2 inch opening. Typically, the Class V hitches have a 2-1/2 inch opening, but since your hitch has a 2 inch opening it would work well for you. I attached an FAQ on hitch classifications for you to check out also.

  • The Carr Gutter-less Mount Kit for Light Bars, Part # CARR221502, is intended to allow mounting of various Carr light bars on vehicles that do not have rain gutters. Rain gutters are u-shaped channels above the doors that direct rain water to the front and rear of the vehicle.

  • Replacement Bumper for a 1996 Dodge Dakota SLT Extended Cab
  • The replacement bumpers that we have for the 1996 Dodge Dakota, see link, are considered a universal fit. There are different lengths for different trucks but it is the installation kit that is more custom for the truck. The installation kit is included with the bumper, # 63000-97800. My contact at Westin stated that the bumpers and install kit will work on extended cab models, but they will not work on quad-cab models.

  • Installing a Voyager Trailer Brake Controller on a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500

Use the duplex wire in the ETBC7 to connect to the black and blue wires on the ETBC7 7-Way. The black wire will need to connect to the positive battery terminal via a 40 amp circuit breaker.

This hitch is designed for 3/4 and 1 ton trucks as long as they are not fitted with a roll pan bumper. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you.

  • Trailer Hitch and Weight Distribution System for a 1996 Dodge Ram Van Towing a 11,552 lb Trailer
  • Before selecting a trailer hitch and weight distribution system for your 1996 Dodge Ram Van B3500 to tow your camper, I would recommend verifying the towing capacity of your vehicle. Adding a higher rated trailer hitch or weight distribution system will not increase the towing capacity of your vehicle. If you have determined that your vehicle can tow your trailer, then I would recommend installing the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch, # 41910. This is a Class IV hitch that has a 10,000...

  • Troubleshooting Dim LED Tail Lights on a 1996 Dodge Ram 3500 with a Flatbed
  • I recently had a similar problem with the LED lights on my flatbed that I have on my 2000 Dodge 3500, except all of the tail lights on the left side of my bed were dim. My issue was a poor ground connection and I would suspect that would be your issue as well. I recommend inspecting all of the ground locations as well as the ground wires coming from each of the lights. Look for loose connections or pinched wires. If your lights use the plug-in style pigtail harnesses (see photo), look...

It is designed to fit 1994 to 2002 Dodge Ram 2500 2wd and 4wd models. The air spring design is different and the mounting brackets are different in the two kits,...

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control for a 1996 Dodge Ram 2500 Towing a 9,300 Pound Trailer
  • At 9,300 pounds, that would put the tongue weight of the trailer between 930 and 1,400 pounds. That also does not include the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle that also counts towards tongue weight. Based on this I would say that you need a system with a tongue weight capacity range of 800 to 1,500 pounds. A trailer that is this heavy, if it starts to sway, can have a real negative impart on the towing vehicle so I absolutely recommend going with sway...

  • If your 1996 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 has the factory 4-inch lift, where the springs rest on a 4-inch block on top of the axle, you will need the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs for Lifted Vehicles, part # F2264, that you have referenced. You will want to measure again the distance from the outside of the frame to the inside of the tire. It will need to be at least 7-1/2 inches for this kit to work. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the # F2264 kit. If you are...

DeeZee has not made and tested a fit for their Tailgate Assist on a 1996 Dodge Ram which is why that vehicle is not listed as a fit.

  • Differences between the Derale Series 8000 Transmission Cooler and the Dyno-Cool Transmission Cooler
  • The main difference between the Derale Series 8000 Transmission Cooler, # D13504, and the Derale Dyno-Cool Transmission Cooler, # D12904, is the construction. The Dyno-Cool cooler is a Tube-Fin style cooler has aluminum fins surrounding the tubes. The aluminum fins dissipate the heat from the transmission fluid in the tubes. The Series 8000 cooler is a Plate-Fin cooler. Plate-fin coolers are similar to tube-fin coolers, but they are more efficient. On these coolers the fluid is forced...

  • Repeated Excessive Tire Wear and Failure On Just One Tire of Tandem Axle Trailer
  • Excessive tire wear on just one tire of a tandem axle trailer could indicate a few things. First, and the easiest to check, it could be a problem with some component of the suspension. You will want to inspect the suspension on that side and look for signs of excessive wear such as egg-shaped holes, bent or broken pieces. If you are not sure you could compare the bad side of the trailer with the good side. Another possible issue is that there is something wrong with the running gear...

  • Does Draw-Tite Adjustable Ball Mount # 1420 have a Solid or Hollow Shank
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled an Adjustable Ball Mount, # 1420. The shank is solid. The vertical portion that holds the adjustable ball mount is hollow. With a solid shank you will not experience much, if any, deflection of the shank when under load (500 pounds tongue weight capacity). This ball mount has a 5,000 pound gross trailer weight capacity. The 1420 is 12 inches long. A pin and clip, # PC3, is sold separately.
