2013 Ram 2500 Questions and Answers


  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Rail Kit for a 2013 Ram 2500 Short Bed to use a B and W Companion Slider
  • Yes, the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30074 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 2013 Ram 2500 with a short bed. If you are really wanting to use a B and W Slider Companion hitch you would want the part # BWGNRK1308-5W though. This will let you install a B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # BWRVK3400-5W like you said you were interested in. An added benefit to this rail kit is that it doubles as a gooseneck hitch.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Install Kit for a 2013 Ram 2500 Short Bed
  • For a short bed truck like your 2013 Ram 2500 I recommend a slider hitch that has 12 inches of travel so you will be able to make tighter turns without hitting the truck cab and trailer together. For a 16K hitch I recommend the Curt Q16, # C16521. It offers a secure dual jaw, 360 degree cushioned head for easy hook up and a smooth ride, and the slider base offers 12 inches of travel. For a 20K hitch we have the Curt Q20, # C16536. It has the same features as the Q16 but with a higher...

  • Do Tow Hooks of the 2013 Ram 2500 Need to be Removed to Install Westin HDX Grille Guard # 57-3555

  • Can a Tandem Bike Be Carried at the Front of a 2013 Ram 2500
  • The first thing you should know is that the Swagman XC-Extended bike rack, # S64650-EXT, will likely not be able to support the wheelbase of a tandem bike. The maximum wheelbase it will accept is 68 inches. We have hitch mount bike rack that would be good for a tandem bike, the RockyMounts TailPipe, # RKY1031. It doesn't have a rise in the shank so there wouldn't be any extra height above the 38-5/16 inches height measured from the top of the shank to the top of the cradles. Keep...

  • Steps for 2013 Ram 2500 That Mount to Chassis Not Body Sheet Metal
  • The Bully Nerf Bars with Installation Kit # NB-214B that you referenced do mount to the Ram's frame members and not to its sheet metal. I verified this on the Pilot website. Other products, such as the Carr Tube Steps # CARR105772, attach to the rocker panels. These Bully Nerf Bars bolt on without drilling using included hardware.

  • Timbren Springs and Firestone Ride-Rite Comparison for a 2013 Ram 2500 Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • There are a few things to consider when purchasing suspension enhancement for towing a fifth wheel trailer. The Bilstein shocks will certainly help, but it also does not hurt to add suspension enhancement like Timbren springs or Firestone air bags either. They will reduce sag, improve stability and prolong the life of your stock suspension. Timbren and Firestone make excellent products. We use Timbren springs on our Ram 2500 when towing our fifth wheel trailer and they do an excellent...

  • What Would Cause the Top of a Trailer Hitch Ball to Wear Excessively After 300 Miles
  • If the ball is smaller than what the coupler requires then the coupler would be able to move around quite a bit and wear down the ball. If the ball is the right size then excessive tongue weight could be a factor. The trailer tongue weight is typically 10 to 15 percent of he gross trailer weight. The ball you use will need to be rated higher than the gross trailer weight. You can also lubricate the ball so that there is less friction. Some ball lube such as # 58117 would work well...

  • Does the Tekonsha Wiring Adapter # 3023-P Fit a 2013 Ram 2500
  • I spoke with my contact at Tekonsha and they confirmed that the Custom Wiring Adapter, part # 3023-P, is a fit for your 2013 Dodge Ram 2500. It sounds like you have you located the vehicle’s electric brake control harness connector underneath the dash and left of the steering column, taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal (fig. A). It has a 4-pin connector that mates with the one on the adapter. A second 2-pin connector is located just above the brake pedal that...

  • Distance Between Mounting Holes on the Replacement Underbar Bracket part # 853-5878
  • The distance between the mounting holes of the part # 853-5878 is 4 inches. This is a piece of the mounting hardware of a Thule MOAB part # TH690XT that is compatible with roof racks that are up to 4 inches in width. I can't recommend you use this component to adapt your TracRac bars to your Thule Sidearm Roof Rack though as this combination of parts has never been tested so it would void the warranty of the rack and could potentially cause damage to other cars on the highway as well...

  • Is Manual Override Plug Available For LCL Powered Jack
  • Several of the powered trailer jacks we offer have a manual override option. For example, the Bulldog powered camper jack we offer, part # BD500185, has a manual override feature that uses a crank bolt, part # BD500191. The rubber cover is removed and the crank bolt is used with a ratchet to manually operate the jack when power is lost. For a couple of the Atwood power jacks 80515 and AT80718, we have the replacement handle that is used to operate the jack. That is part # 87891....

  • Removing Bent Dual Cam Sway Control From Trailer to Get Home
  • The easiest solution for you to get home (as long as you have the capacity) would be to remove the spring bars of the system and take it easy till you get home and then have it repaired. However, since you are 2,000 miles away I would recommend you remove the dual cam system from both sides and then attach the chains directly to your spring bars that way you still have the weight distribution system functioning. It could be that the dual cam system is out of adjustment on the bad...

  • Will Curt Friction Style Sway Control System Fit Curt 1400 Pound Weight Distribution System
  • Yes, you can use sway control # 17200 with Curt weight distribution hitch # C17007. But if the trailer gross weight is between 6,000 lbs and 10,000 lbs, you will need two sway-control units, one on either side of the trailer. You will also want to use two units if your trailer is 26 feet or longer. I have included a link to the installation details for you.

  • Reese Extension/Reducer # RP45292 Compatibility with Class V Factory Hitch on 2013 Ram 2500
  • The Reese Titan Extension/Reducer you referenced, part # RP45292 would work great with the 2-1/2 inch Class V hitch on your Ram. As you mentioned, the extension has a 8K capacity when cut down to the 24 inch length, that will provide a 2 inch receiver on the other end you can attach a ball mount or weight distribution system to.

  • Adapter to Use Pullrite ISR SuperGlide in a 2013 Ram Mega Cab with OEM 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • So it looks like you have the ISR (industry standard rail) version of the SuperGlide. When trying to adapt that to a 2013 or 2014 Ram with the factory installed 5th wheel prep package, you are going to have to use an adapter. If the feet on the hitch are 20-1/2 inches or 29 inches apart on center, side to side, and 22 inches apart on center front to back then you can use adapter # RP30154.

  • How to Determine where to Mount the Cables on Trailer Ramp for a Gorilla Lift
  • First, the cable from the Gorilla Lift, # GL1, attaches to a trailer ramp using a bolt and nuts. I have included a picture showing this. The place where the cable will attach to the ramp depends on its size and design. I have included a picture showing the chart used to determine cable placement for you. We do not currently have a video showing installation.

  • Advice for Torquing Front Installation Bolts for Curt Fifth Wheel Installation Kit part # C16426
  • I spoke to my contact at Curt about the issue you are having installing the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Bracket Kit # C16426 on your 2013 Ram 2500 and he said that you will need to get the 110 ft lbs on the front bolts. He said that your only options are to find a different torque wrench, possibly one with crows feet so that you can get in there better. In some situations with the Curt rail kits we have found that you can't always get the hardware torqued due to limited space.

  • Blu Ox Gooseneck Hitch # DH1102 Recommendation for a 2013 Ram 2500 with 5-1/2 ft Bed

I attached installation instructions and an install video for you to check out also.

  • Locks Needed For 2-1/2 Inch Hitch Receiver And Coupler On Trailer
  • I was unable to find a combination system that would work to lock both the coupler on your trailer and also the hitch receiver on your 2013 Dodge Ram 2500 with a 2-1/2 receiver. For a simple system to secure your coupler I recommend the Blaylock EZ Lock Trailer Coupler Lock, part # BLTL-33-40D. This lock simply inserts into the the coupler and uses a 3/4 inch pin to secure the lock to the coupler. A keyed Master Lock is included that is inserted through the pin on the lock. For...

  • How to Determine the Right Rise or Drop Needed when Choosing a Ball Mount
  • The amount of clearance needed is going to be different for every vehicle, trailer, and possible terrain you may encounter. For example, a lifted truck towing a large travel trailer through the plains would not have a problem with ground clearance. A minivan towing a pop up camper in the mountains and offroad is likely going to encounter ground clearance issues if the adjustable ball mount drops low enough. What you can do is determine the amount of drop you need by taking a few measurements....

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2013 Ram 2500 Behind a Motor Home
  • The first thing you are going to want to do is consult the owners manual for your 2013 Ram 2500 to make sure it can be flat towed. To flat tow a vehicle you will need base plates, a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. Since your 2013 Ram has tow hooks you can use base plates # BX1989. Your truck could be heavy depending on how it is equipped. So for a tow bar that has enough capacity and that is compatible with the base plates I recommend the Blue Ox...

  • Will the Reese R16 Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit a 2013 Ram 2500 Short Bed
  • Yes, you can use the Reese R16 5th wheel trailer hitch, # RP30869, on your 2013 Ram 2500 short bed. For an installation kit the best option to fit the hitch and for ease of installation use # RP56011-53. You can also use installation kit # C16426-204. These are both custom installation kits that require less drilling and install time compared to universal installation kits. The hitch has 11 inches of travel. To make sure this is enough for you to safely make 90 degree turns without hitting...

  • 5th Wheel Rail Installation Kit Recommendation for a 2013 Ram 2500 with 6 foot Bed
  • The recommended 5th wheel rail installation kit for a 2013 Ram 2500 with a 6 foot bed is the Curt Fifth Wheel Installation kit part # C16426-204, this would be the kit you would want. If your PullRite SuperGlide is the ISR Series then yes it would be compatible with the # C16426-204, if it is the traditional series then no it would not. The Curt Rail kit part # C16427-104 that you referenced is designed for the 2014 Rams so it would not work for you.

  • Does Draw-Tite Gooseneck # 8339-4457 Include Installation Rails
  • The Draw-Tite Fold-Down Gooseneck Hitch you referenced, part # 8339-4457 does indeed include the mounting rails. I have confirmed that the hitch and install rails are a fit for your truck. To provide a trailer connector in your truck bed, you might also be interested in part # 41157. I have linked you to an installation video for the trailer connector.

  • For your 2013 Ram 2500 and Husky 5th wheel trailer hitch you will need to use installation kit # HT32084-686. This is a custom installation kit that requires only minimal drilling for installation. Custom installation kits require less installation time compared to universal kits because of the custom fit brackets and less drilling involved.

  • Adjustable Ball Mount that Can be Used with Friction Sway Control
  • You can use sway control only with an adjustable ball mount in one of two ways. First, you could use sway control bracket # RP26003 which will fit a ball mount platform up to 2.610 inches wide. It also has a 1 inch diameter hitch ball hole. The other option is to weld on a sway control bracket # 3442. Welding should be performed by a qualified professional welder. For an adjustable ball mount that already has a sway control portion on it we have # 7390. It is rated for 6,000 pounds...

  • Is Exhaust System Permanently Lowered to Install Blue Ox Gooseneck on 2013 Dodge Ram MegaCab
  • I spoke with my contact at Blue Ox about your 2013 Dodge Ram Mega Cab and the exhaust. They do furnish replacement hangers for the exhaust with the Blue Ox Diamond Hitch, part # DH1102. My contact told me that the hangers are adjustable and depending on the installation, the exhaust could be as much as 3 inches lower. I have attached a photo that shows the hangers in the kit and the dimensions when they are retracted and fully extended. I have also included a video that shows this hitch...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2013 Ram 2500 Mega Cab
  • Since the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter # CAB-C5GX1216 that you referenced does not move the pivot point further back you really do not gain much clearance for tight turns with a short bed truck. Also, if you use an offset adapter like this you can not use an additional offset adapter like the B and W extender you referenced. This would cause too much leverage on the trailer. Do you have a hitch in the bed of your truck? If not I would recommend you install...

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Ram 2500
  • Both the Draw Tite Hitch # 9464-57 and the B and W hitch # BWGNRK1313 that are confirmed for your 2013 Ram 2500 would be an excellent choice. The U-bolt install of the # 9464-57 would make the install simpler than having to fishwire installation bolts like the B and W. The U-bolts will be very secure as well. Since you mentioned twice that you did not like the idea of cutting a bigger hole in the bed I believe the # 9464-57 would be the better choice for you as well.
