1996 Dodge Questions and Answers


  • How to Get a Brake Controller Harness Connector Through a Small Hole for Installation
  • The easiest way to get that connector through the hole would be the reverse of how you got the Voyager harness through the hole. You will need to cut the wires and then pass the wire end of the connector through the hole and then reconnect the wires using solder or butt-end connectors. I wouldn't recommend removing the wires from the connector and then reinstalling them as they can be kind of difficult to release and if you were to get the wiring of the connector wrong you could damage...

  • Suspension Enhancement For 1996 Dodge Ram 4 X 4 Pickup Truck
  • Suspension enhancement like the Timbren Vehicle Suspension, part # TDR1525H4, are not intended to lift the rear of your 1996 Dodge Ram Pickup. These are designed to help act as a shock absorber when a heavy load is placed on the back of your truck and do not affect the ride when no load is present. I have attached a link to our product page for suspension enhancement that is designed to fit your truck. You can use the dropdown menu to find your model and style truck to narrow your search...

  • Is There a Quick-Connect Under-Dash Brake Controller Port on 1996 Dodge Ram 2500 Pickup
  • If your 1996 Dodge Ram 2500 pickup has a factory 7-way or 4-way connector at the rear bumper then it will also have a quick-connect brake controller port under the dash. If so, you can use the Hopkins Wiring Adapter # HM47755 that you referenced. If you have a 4-way you will also need # 37185 and you'll need to complete the wiring that is located under the driver's side wheel well by splicing into it to continue it back to the plug. If you do not have any factory trailer connector...

  • Brake Lights on 1996 Dodge Ram Come On and Stay On Sometimes when Connected to 5th Wheel Trailer
  • It sounds like there is a short or some back feeding through the tow package wiring when the 5th wheel trailer is connected. The easiest thing to check would be the trailer and truck connectors. The need to be clean and corrosion free inside and out. Make sure none of the wires attached to the back of the connectors are touching each other. It could also be the brake controller. In the truck cab you will need to sever the blue wire several inches from the back of the controller. Then...

  • Will the Curt 7-Way and 4-Way Trailer Connector # C57100 Fit on a 1996 Dodge Dakota
  • Yes, the Curt 7-Way and 4-Way Trailer Connector, # C57100, will work as a replacement for your factory installed 7-way trailer connector without requiring any splicing or cutting. You will simply unhook the rectangular connector from your existing 7-way connector and plug it into the back of the Curt connector. The actual 7-way socket on the Curt connector will be larger than your current 7-way connector, so it comes with its own mounting bracket so you can mount it to your truck.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • How to Install a Trailer Brake Controller on a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 with Factory 4-Way
  • On a 1996 Dodge Ram that came with a factory 4-Way trailer connector there is a factory harness you can plug into to install a brake controller. The harness is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal. I have included a link to a video that should help. For the Dexter brake controller, # 58-8 you referenced, you would need wiring harness # 20261. To wire in your 7-Way that you have you will need to hardwire...

  • Tailgate Lifting and Lowering Assist for a 1996 Dodge Ram
  • The Tailgate EasyLift, # 74211, will fit your 1996 Dodge Ram. It is designed to make lifting and lowering the tailgate easier. It essentially removes most of the weight of the tailgate making it easier to move. I have included a link to a video review of this item for you. 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.

  • We have several gooseneck hitch options for your 1996 Dodge Ram 3500 with the 8 ft bed. I have attached a link to all of your options for you to check out. Of the available hitches, I recommend looking at the Blue Ox Diamond Gooseneck Hitch, # DH1101. This hitch is easy to use and does not require any levers or springs to remove or reattach the gooseneck ball. The ball can also be removed and turned upside down to give you full use of the truck bed and limiting the potential of losing...

  • Hopkins Agility Brake Controller Hums and Has Weak Output in 1996 Dodge Ram 2500 Pickup
  • The Hopkins Agility Brake Controller, part # HM47294, has both a power level control (the two plus and minus buttons on the top of the unit) and a sensitivity control (labeled S, on the left side). Both of these controls will have an impact on the braking power applied to your trailer brakes. Since the controller provides enough power when you press the manual override button it sounds like the unit is working properly but just needs to be adjusted. The display indicates power level...

  • Will a Trailer Hitch from a 1996 Dodge Caravan Fit a 1994 Dodge Caravan
  • It looks like there was a design change in the Dodge Caravan that started with the 1996 model year. Because of this a hitch for a 1994 Dodge Caravan will NOT fit a 1996. Trailer hitch # 75176 that you have referenced will fit a 1994 but not a 1996 Caravan. For a 1996 Dodge Caravan the equivalent hitch would be # 75119.

You can tell if you have them by running your finger from the vehicle roof down across the top of the door; if...

  • I spoke to my contact at Westin and he informed me that the only option you have for a Sportsman Grille Guard on your 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 would be the Westin Sportsman Grille Guard # 40-0605 He said that there is no adapter or hardware kit available that would allow you to install a grille guard from a Chevy/GMC truck on your vehicle.

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.

  • 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...

  • Recommendation For Firestone Ride-Rite Springs on 1996 Dodge 2500 4X4 With Factory 4-Inch Lift
  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Are OEM Bumper Brackets Used to Install a Westin Diamondstep Rear Bumper on a 1996 Dodge Ram 2500
