2013 Ram 2500 Questions and Answers


  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 that might fit or to hire somebody else to do it. I realize that's probably not the answer you wanted to hear, but maybe you could borrow a nicer torque wrench from an auto parts store and that would help.

  • 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...

  • 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.

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.

  • Is Exhaust System Permanently Lowered to Install Blue Ox Gooseneck on 2013 Dodge Ram MegaCab

  • 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.

  • Will a B and W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit a Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose in a 2013 Ram 2500
  • No, the B and W Companion hitch # BWRVK3400-5W and the Hide-A-Goose hitch # 9464-57 do not use the same installation kit. They are specific to their respective hitches. For the B and W hitch you will want to get installation kit and gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1313-5W for your 2013 Ram 2500 diesel. Once the installation kit is installed the Companion hitch does fit into the gooseneck ball hole and locks into place the same way the gooseneck ball does. I have included links to the installation...

  • Ball Mount, 2 Inch Ball, and Storage Bag for a 2013 Ram 2500 with 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • We do not have a ball mount kit with a 2-1/2 inch ball mount and 2 inch ball but you can get those items separately. The ball mount that is used in the kit you referenced is # RP45323. For a 2 inch ball with a 1-1/4 inch diameter shank you can use # A-90 rated up to 10,000 pounds. And the storage bag is # ETBMB. Getting these parts separately will actually save you a couple of bucks!

  • Can Firestone Ride-Rite Air Bags be Installed on 2013 Ram 2500 with B and W Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • It looks like the brackets on the B and W gooseneck trailer hitch # BWGNRK1313 fit on the outboard side of the frame rails on your 2013 Ram 2500. The brackets for the Firestone air bags, # F2299, install on the bottoms and inboard sides of the frame rails. This means there should be no interference and you can use both products.

These springs are great for people who use snowplows. The more they are compressed the more resistance they offer so there should not be any bouncing problem like you are having with the air bags.

  • Gooseneck Hitch and Install Kit Recommendation for a 2013 Ram 2500
  • There are confirmed gooseneck hitches that will work on your 2013 Ram 2500, but the 30K Under-Bed Gooseneck Hitch # 9470-39 that you referenced is designed for older model Rams and would not work for you.

  • Can the Firestone Heavy Duty Air Compressor Fill a Flat Tire
  • The heavy duty Firestone compressor can inflate tires but you would also need a tank. Firestone does make a remote filling station, # F2239, that has the tank, compressor, gauges, lines and other accessories. The Level Command kit # F2097 is not set up for tire inflation as it comes.

  • Can Extang Tonneau Cover for 2013 Ram 2500 with Rambox Fit with DeeZee Chest Toolbox Installed

Measure from the top of the bed corrugations to the top of the bed sides to determine fit. Some parts of tonneau cover # EX56426 will hang below the tops of the bed on the underside of the cover but they should be off to the sides where the cover attaches to the bed.

  • I have a ladder rack and tonneau cover combination that will work for your 2013 Ram 2500, however, TracRac discontinued tonneau cover option for the TracRac ladder racks.
