Video Transcript for Front Mount Trailer Hitch Installation - 2010 Dodge Ram

Today on this 2010 Dodge Ram 2500, were going to install part number c31015 from Curt. This is what it looks like when the hitch is installed on the vehicle. Next we will give you some measurements that will help you out when selecting some accessories. From the center of the pin hitch hole to the outside edge of the bumper is going to be 9-1/2, and from the top of the receiver tube down to the ground is going to be 13. Now I will go ahead and show you how the hitch is installed. Alright our first step we have to make a notch in an air dam at the bottom of the bumper.

So we find our center, we reference the center rib bit behind the license plate and go down from there. And from this center point right here we have to make a notch that is 2-1/2 wide, and our height is going to be 1.875 tall. We are going to take some tin slips to make our two vertical cuts and well use a knife to go across the top. We will score it just part way through and then we could snap it off. Next we are going to remove these two nuts on the bolts that are holding the bumper bracket in place.

Okay weve got our drivers side done, lets go over to the passengers side and do the same thing. Now next we need to install this spacer block right here. We are going to do this on both sides, but we also need to take this bolt and slide it to the inside where it is flush that way we can slide the hitch over it. These are bolts that are going to hold the bumper in place, loosen the tension on it and slide the bolts out. At this point now lets go ahead and install the hitch.

Now you will need an extra set of hands to help hold the hitch up and push the bolts through. Alright, this flange nut with the flat bottom here will be to replace the nut that we use on the bottom bolt. On our top bolt we can reinstall the factory nut. The remaining hitch hardwear that comes with the kit we will use these flange nuts with the textured bottom. Okay the attaching points here and here we will use the 7/16ths carriage bolt and block.

We will fish wire those from the inside out. We will start with the bottom hole, we will work our way up to this corner out here. Thread that in first, and then we will thread in our bolt, pull it on through, and then add our flange nut to the other side. Okay done with the drivers side, one more time on the passengers side. Alright with all our hardwear installed we can go ahead and snug it down and tork it down as specified in the instructions. With are hardwear torked down we are ready to go. And there you have it for part number c31015 from Curt. .

Wasn't sure this part would fit on my 2017 Ram 2500 Power Wagon, because Curt hadn't "approved" it yet, but it went on very easy. They included longer bolts that were needed due to my built in winch and the feeder wires were a great help. I lost a little approach clearance, but it is worth it. etrailer was great during the order process. 438883

- C31015

Ship time was super fast. Product is very heavy duty and the powder coat was perfect. All the hardware is included plus some cool wire to help fish a bolt through a tight spot. Directions were 95% useful and I also found a video by the manufacturer showing how to install it. Could not be more happy. 670129

Was going between drawtite receiver that fits on two hook bolts or Curt that fits on frame and sits lower almost invisible. Went with Curt. Want to use this with my bike rack when pulling 5th wheel camper, I thought being lower it would keep the bikes down lower out of sight. Installed by myself it took 1.15 hrs a second set of hands would have been great but using a jack it can be done. Looks great very easy install. Ordered it Tuesday had it Friday quick and helpful staff. I will definitely use etrailer again. Installed on a Dodge Ram 2500 2015 4x4 515964

I was totally amazed at the quality and the fit to my truck this hitch went on so easy even though I have a brush guard on this truck also. This item went on in about 45 minutes and that was to unpack it and get out the tools start to finish. 238736

Great I use it all the time in tight places, so much easier then backing in a trailer in small areas

I put this on a 2014 Ram 2500 Crew Cab. I use it in conjunction with the Thule Hitching Post Pro - Folding Tilting 4 Bike Rack w Anti-Sway - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches (TH934XTR) to take our bikes along when pulling our camper. It works well and sits out far enough to clear the front bumper. I considered the Draw Tite (65063), but I'm glad I didn't go that way as the bikes would have sat much too high and would have blocked my field of view. The bikes do bounce some, which made me nervous initially, but the hitch and the bike rack have held up well after one year. 772219

Good solid hitch. Took about an hour with help of my son. The drivers side on 2016 Ram Diesel was pretty easy but the passagers side was a bit challenging, because the two bolts that needed to be pushed in were being restricted on the other side but we got it done. 771817

- C31015

The end results is what I needed. Everything in regards to etrailer was executed flawlessly. Purchase, shipping, etc. In fact I’m getting ready to make another purchase. Overall install took me a bit longer. I found removing the bottom plastic molding off the front bumper make raising the hitch and bolting in way less stressful as you have a lot more room to work. Also, in the very beginning I wish I would have marked the height of the front bumper. I had to adjust a couple times before I had everything back square and level. I had the extra time so no big deal. Will work great for my needs. 764242

Quality built and good shipping...Now for installation, 2018 ram 2500, passenger side top bumper wouid not slide far enough because metal bracket on the other side.. after getting the hitch up and got nut on the drivers side had take long screwdriver and pry bottom bumper head on passenger side so I can get enough clearance to raise hitch to get a nut on. The bumper dropped 1/2 " and couldn't get raised again. still doesn't look bad. Fishing bolts was no problem. I even got a finger on the head of bolt to hold it in place while putting on nut. Not an easy installation job for 1 person but got'er done. 756116

I recently bought an RV and I thought a front hitch would be handy on my RAM haul vehicle. I have a bike rack or a cargo carrier that could be utilized. Also I thought it could be used to park the RV in some situations. The hitch came with all hardware required and was really quite simple to install ( you will need an extra set of hands ) but is basically plug and play. The only reason I did not give a five star rating is because I had to slightly file the hitch pin hole on the one side of the receiver so the pin would go threw. 725131

Rock solid and a must for off road and camping. I had some trouble with mounting ( I’m not very mechanically inclined ) but I did it and would recommend to any one. I got the hitch for under the bumper a must for not getting in the way of trans cooler. 2018 Ram 2500 Cummings turbo diesel 720948

- C31015

When the package arrived one of the flanges was sticking out of the package. When trying to install it was too tight to line up on the lower bumper bolts. A smack with a healthy hammer made an adjustment that allowed it to move into the desired position. Of course smaller adjustments had to be made because it was too wide after the initial "smack". After the fit was determined to be good the rest of the install went fine. Two people are required to install and we used the long bolts (not needed on my installation) to help support the hitch while assembling. Looks good and fits as stated. 671158

Arrived the next day. Very well made, looks great, and easy to install. 666438

Extremely sturdy, bolted up perfectly, every hole lined up, every bolt sized to perfection. 657560

Fast delivery. Fits like a glove on my 2012 Ram 2500 4x4. Installed by myself, took about an hour and half using two jack stands. Hardest part was getting the hole centered in the air dam. Only concern was whether I could get the bumper back to factory location as mine dropped appox 1/4". Couldn't get it back but took measurements and it was still level. Looks great!! 621724

Great product. A little hard to install by yourself but it can be done. The pictures with the included instructions are dark and hard to see, however thanks to the eTrailer install video, it went smoothly. 600786

- C31015

Very neat install; tucked away on a Dodge Ram 2500 it is barely visible. I did need a hitch extension because it is tucked back but am overall very satisfied. 598813

I installed the hitch on my 2018 fwd ram today. The fit and finish on it was beyond my expectations. The directions provided with the hitch were minimal but accurate. Etrailer provided a video of the installation that was very helpful to let me know what to expect. Curt did a great job engendering the hitch with every detail addressed down to the wires needed to pull the bolts through a blind hole and torque specs . The only minor disappointment was the hitch was not secured in the box for shipping. The packaging was first class as far as size and structural integrity but the contents were not secured, and beat its way though the box. I would always recommend Etrailer. Great customer service pricing and exceptional website!!! 594965

- C31015

The hitch fit perfectly on my 2017 Ram Power wagon. The longer bolts included were definitely needed for the factory installed winch. I gave it 4 stars only because of the packaging not the hitch. This is the 2nd hitch I've ordered for a 2nd truck. The first one arrived a little bent and both arrived with torn boxes, dents, and scratched paint. The packaging needs to be upgraded to handle the weight. Also, one of the first items on the instructions is to remove the nuts that secure the bumper bolts, the top ones will be reinstalled...... I didn't loosen or remove these and everything assembled just fine. 589552

- C31015

Installed on 2018 2500 Dodge Tradesman. Pop on Meyers home plow and also use for moving boat and trailers. Instructions were not the best to install because the bolts were different than described but that is on Curt. ETRAILER made it easy to purchase and delivered on time. They were the only ones saying it fit onto my 2018 truck. It was for that reason I want with them. 574024

Looks great on the truck. I bought a bike rack that I'm using it with (we have a trailer on the back of the truck so we had to find another option for the bikes). 520082

Hitch arrived in three days, installed in an hour! Perfect fit on my 2017 Ram Tradesman 2500 HD. Will have to lengthen my bike rack tube due to design of rack. Thanks Sammy for calling Curt, then guaranteeing return shipping if no fit. You can hardly notice it's there! 445891

  • Curt or Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch for 2018 Ram 2500
    I am happy to recommend a front mount hitch for your 2018 Ram 2500, but I did want to first point out that the Curt # C31089 that you mentioned is not designed for your truck. This particular hitch is designed to fit the 2019 model Ram 2500, so it's not going to line up to the frame rails on your 2018 Ram. The correct Curt Front Hitch for your 2018 Ram 2500 is the part # C31015 as long as you have the 4WD. The Draw-Tite # 65063 you referenced as well is also a confirmed fit. Between...

  • Which Front Hitch Fits 2017 Ram 2500 2 Wheel Drive
    The front end steering and suspension components are slightly different between the four wheel drive and the two wheel drive models of the 2017 Ram 2500 which is why the # C31015 does not fit the 2 wheel drive models. Only option we have is the Draw Tite part # 65063 which does mount right above the license plate. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

    We carry a Curt front mount hitch that has been confirmed as a fit for your 2001 Dodge Ram 2500, but the part # C31015 that you referenced only fits new Rams so it would not work for you. Instead you would want the # 31604 as it has been confirmed as a fit for your truck.

  • Hitch Bike Rack Clearance When Used on Front-Mount Hitch Receiver on 2014 Ram 2500
    When we installed Curt front hitch # C31015 on a 2010 Ram 2500 the hitch pin hole was positioned 9-1/2-inches behind the leading edge of the front bumper cover. This means that the excellent Kuat NV 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack # NV22G would clear the front of the vehicle when in its down (bike carrying) position but would NOT be able to fold up when it is unloaded. It is a virtual certainty that parts of the inner bike would contact the vehicle. Since front hitches tend to need more clearance...

    For your 2015 Ram 2500 4WD the Curt front hitch part # C31015 is a confirmed fit and will work well. It has a vertical load limit of 500 lbs which would be adequate for the weight of your 325 lb motorcycle and carrier like the MaxxTow motorcycle carrier part # MT70101. You might want to install front suspension enhancement on your truck like the Firestone kit part # F4193 to help provide more support when carrying the motorcycle.

  • Is Install of Curt Front Hitch # C31015 the Same on 2016 Ram 2500 as Install Video for 2010 Ram
    Ride height on trucks has a tendency to go up over time we have found. I am not surprised that your 2016 Ram 2500 would have a higher ride height vs. a 2010 model. Fit and trimming would be the same on your truck but the hitch ground clearance would be different.

He said they have not heard of this particular problem before. In fact when they did the test fit for this hitch they installed it on a 2014 Ram 2500 Diesel just like yours.

  • Is Front-Mounted Hitch Capacity for Winch Use Affected By Using High/Low Hitch Adapter
    Front-mounted hitches for Rams such as the Curt # C31015 have ratings for both vertical force and for linear pull, the latter being the case when used with a winch. This hitch has a 500-lb vertical load limit but a 5000-lb line pull limit. If you were to use a hitch high/low adapter that gives you a height increase, such as # RM-048-4 from Roadmaster, you would retain your full hitch line pull capacity IF the winch cable remained absolutely level when in use.

The bottom nuts definitely needs to be removed as they will be replaced by the included hardware once the hitch is in place, however the removal of the top nut is really only to release some of the tension on the bumper that allows you to more easily slide the bottom bolt where it needs to be for the hitch brackets.

  • 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Extension for 2014 Dodge Ram with Front Mount Trailer Hitch
    I do have a solution that might work for you, though it is not an extender. An extender would reduce your tongue weight capacity of the hitch by half, so it is not the best solution for you. Instead, I recommend a long ball mount. Take a look at # 2736 as an example. It is rated for 5,000 pounds and measures 12 inches long from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. It has a 3/4 inch rise or a 2 inch drop. We also have # BM20. This ball mount measures 13-1/4"...

If you have a 4WD truck and do not have factory tow hooks then instead use the Curt model # C31015. Both the Draw-Tite # 65063 and Curt # C31015 have a 500-lb vertical load limit (akin to tongue weight).

    Even at a short distance and going slowly, I do not recommend using a front hitch like the Draw-Tite # 65063 or Curt # C31015 on your 2017 Ram 2500 to help back up your travel trailer because your trailer's tongue weight is well over capacity and it simply would not be safe. The best option for you is a back-up camera, the Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112.

  • Should Draw-Tite Front Hitch on a 2013 Ram 2500 have Bent when Carrying 2 Bikes
    No, for that customer, Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" Item # 65063 should not have bent like that. But consider that there are more than 100 reviews on this hitch and they are overwhelmingly positive. With that said if you have reservations about this hitch there is another option; Curt front receiver # C31015. But it only fits 4-wheel drive models. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you.
