Ram HC Animation

Reese has created this light-up hitch cover to look like an ordinary Ram logo in daytime, non-braking situations. When you turn on your vehicle's tail lights or activate the brakes, the cover's unique metallic coating appears transparent, and bright red LEDs shine through. The long-lasting LEDs have 2 intensity levels. The red lights remain set at low illumination when your vehicle's tail lights are on. When you activate your brakes or turn on your hazard lights, the LEDs burn brighter to draw attention to your vehicle. The hitch cover will not flash when your turn signals are activated.


Hitch covers are fun to show off and they look cool, but they do more than just accessorize your vehicle. A hitch cover helps to keep dirt out of your receiver and deters rust, so you can easily install ball mounts and other hitch accessories when you need them. This hitch cover is a great way to protect your receiver and proclaim your loyalty to the renowned Ram brand, all in one.


Simple Assembly

Mounting brackets for both 1-1/4" and 2" hitch receivers are included. These 2-piece brackets attach to the back of the hitch cover face with the supplied hardware.


The 2" bracket has countersunk bolt holes that allow it to sit flush on the back of the emblem when fully assembled. There is a slot built into this bracket that allows you to pass the wiring through. The 1-1/4" bracket mounts on top of the threaded posts. Instead of passing the wires through a built-in slot, you are required to run the wires between the bracket and the emblem with this setup.


Note that the converter, which is necessary to keep the hitch cover from flashing when your turn signals are activated, can be tucked inside the assembled 2" mounting bracket. However, the module doesn't fit inside of the 1-1/4" bracket, so if you use this hitch cover on your 1-1/4" receiver, the converter will hang on the outside of the mounting bracket.

Video Transcript for Reese Hitch Covers - OEM - 86066 Review

Today, we are gonna review part number 86066. This is the Reese Dodge Ram LED Brake and Tail Light trailer Hitch Cover to fit 1-1/4 and 2-inch hitch receivers. This is an officially licensed 3D Dodge Ram logo, which will add a stylish touch to your vehicle. It uses red LED lights, which will light up to give your vehicles some flash and make it more visible as well as to alert other drivers to slow down or stop when you do. When plugged in, it has a low illumination, which will be used when you are using your tail lights and then it goes to a higher or brighter illumination when you apply your breaks or engage the hazard lights. It does use energy efficient LEDs, which are long lasting.

This hitch cover does come with a foam gasket, which will help protect your vehicles hitch receiver from water and dirt. I am going to give you a few dimensions on it. The overall width on this would be 4-3/4 inches. The height is 5-1/4 inches. This does come with a 90-day warranty.

It is made of a corrosion-resistant plastic with a metallic coating that becomes transparent when the lights are activated. Now, this part will come with the 1-1/4-inch adapter that would bolt on and a gasket to be used with that. It also comes with the 2-inch, which I have already attached to the hitch cover and the gasket for that and the mounting hardware is included. This is a simple installation. Once this is attached to your hitch cover, whichever adapter size you need, you would just then put your foam gasket on.

I got a 2-inch hitch receiver here. Slide it in until the hole would line up. Now, it does use a pin and clip or a hitch lock, which is sold separately. You just slide it in, line it up, put your pin through, and then you can plug it in. I have a power supply here, a 4-way, that I am going to plug in to give you an idea of the brightness on this hitch cover.

Okay, with that plugged in, that would be with the tail lights on, and then when you apply the brakes or the hazard lights, it would light up even more. Now, I want to give you an idea of what it would be with the overhead lights off, to give you an idea at nighttime. That would be just with the tail lights on and then when you apply your brakes or hazard lights it would light up even more. Again, this part comes with a 90-day warranty. That should do it for part number 86066.

Looks great, however the wire was not long enough to reach from the hitch to the plug...which sits above the bumper on the 2010 Dodge Ram. 32104


Comments

Yah, I wish I saw this comment before I bought it for my 2013 Laramie. The wire harness is simply too short. I have to use my 4 to 5 pole adapter to make the connection work at all and then there is no room for wire management. Cant recommend it to anyone with a Ram with the factory tow options installed which place the wiring connections by the license plate. If your tow package places your wire connections below the bumper, you will likely not have a problem making the connection. With the all plastic housing though, I do not feel this product justifies a 35 dollar retail price.

Thank you for the feedback.

Im agree with Dave,it is really not perfect fit for my Ram too. The wire is too short .I bought this 1 on feb112013.Today I receive this,when installing it find wire is not long enough to reach to adaptor.

Thanks for the input. We are following up with Reese on this one about extending the length. In the meantime, we have added an extension and a dedicated 4-pole harness to the Related Products section on this page that would solve the issue.

-- Patrick B - 3/21/2013

Comments

Have they lengthened the cord on this yet? Does it still not reach? I have a 2010 Ram and I really want this but wont buy if it cant reach.

-- comment by: Drew - 04/02/2013

As far as we know, Reese has not changed the length of the cord. I just spoke with one of my contacts over there and he confirmed that the length has not changed since production started. We have added an extension as a related product that will provide an extra 12 inches of length as a solution. See part 9653P.

Im Looking at the picture examples you show and none of them have where the wiring leading from the hitch cover actually plugs into the connection integrated in the bumper.Is there a seperate connection under the bumper to hook into? Aestically it looks nice.

I love this product. Easy to assemble and it looks great on my 2014 Ram 1500 pick up. You will the 12” trailer end loop ( item # 9653P). 472201

by:

Mopar rams head trailer hitch exceeds my expectations. The internal illumination is very bright. Impossible to miss. I thought the battery operated switch included was extremely cute and functional. This enabled me to check the light before I installed and marked it up in case a return was necessary. The fact that the light operates on 3 functions (4 ways, turn signals and brake lights is too cool. I highly recommend it. 462950

I bought this light up Chrome Dodge Ram Trailer Hitch cover, because I thought it looked really sweet, a now it’s been approximately 1 year later and it looks absolutely awful. Just curious if there is anything you recommend or can do for me since it’s been approximately 1 year and looks horrible. I would definitely like to continue to have this, but if nothing can be done I will have to buy somthing else from another company. I have attached a picture, please let me know if there is anything that can be done with this. Thank you for your time 520867

Looked great until I went through the car wash and the face of the hitch blew right off. Only had it on for a week. 363479



- 86066
by:

Wow, this looks great on the back of my 3500 DWD Ram. I only wish I'd purchased this earlier...like several years earlier. The light is bright and I love the deep red. The kit comes with receiver inserts for both 2" & 1 1/4" receivers. It is a bit tricky to get the little screws and washers in place to hold the insert onto the cover. I highly recommend a magnetized screwdriver. 360319



- 86066
by:

Pretty nice product. Its plastic, so weather seems to wear on it. It doesn't feel very durable. But so far, its held up. I don't use it during the summer because I tow a boat and have a bike rack. But it look very nice on the truck. 334838

Nice accent to your truck but wires to short on my 2011 2500 and 2013 1500 just need to go buy an extension all in all looks great 327890

I love the hitch insert. I did need to buy a 4-wire extension since the one supplied was too short to reach my plug. Also had to buy a hitch pin since one wasn't included. Would have liked it even better if those things were supplied. 215299

Short story (not very) short the wiring harness was way too short... Even if you wanted to expose the harness outside of your bumper it was still short. I had to go to my local hardware store and buy a splice kit with wiring to extend the wiring. I had to cut the factory wires splice them (with the right size splicers) crimp and electrical tape the whole harness. And if you don't have the right tools your going back to the hardware store. Unless you want to stretch the factory wiring which might it lose the connection and make it look like sht your good. 159024

I was elated to display my RAM trailer hitch cover. Once I hooked it up, it increased the love of owning a truck. I've have already received several positive comments from friends and strangers. The RAM cover lights up when I lock my doors, as well as when I hit my brakes, and apply my emergency flashers. I love the after market product. Once I figure out how to display the RAM cover with the under ramp turning lights, I'm contemplating purchasing the lights. Shine on Dodge RAM - shine on! 150391

Ask the Experts about this Reese Hitch Covers

Do you have a question about this Hitch Cover?


  • Recommended LED Tailgate and Hitch Logos For Ram Truck
  • We have a chrome logo that is pretty close to the stock logo and has the LED lighting. It is the Ram LED Lighted Trailer Hitch Cover - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Chrome # 86066 that has the black accent background. I've attached some videos so you can see how it looks when it is lit as well as when it is not. Unfortunately we don't make the logos and don't have a chrome matching logo for the tailgate that has the LED. If you are interested in the Ram LED Lighted Vehicle Emblem - Black...
    view full answer...

  • Can an Lighted LED Hitch Cover be Converted to a Tailgate Emblem on a Dodge Ram
  • What you have described would work but instead of splicing in more wire you could just use a 4-Way extension such as # HM48145 which is 12 inches or # HM47115 which is 48 inches. The longer one would give you more options for routing the wiring. Keep in mind that the hitch cover was not designed for this purpose so any warranty it has will be void. Another option is to go with a lighted emblem such as # RP86619 which was designed for this purpose. I have linked a video review for you...

  • Dodge Ram Hitch Cover Recommendation
  • The Ram LED Hitch Cover part # 86066 that you referenced would be a great option. This is a light up RAM hitch cover that can fit 2 inch hitches. Chances are you (or anyone wanting this hitch cover), wouldn't have a 1-1/4 inch hitch. But this cover can also fit them as well.
    view full answer...

  • Recommended Chrome Lighted Hitch Cover With Ram Logo
  • We have just what you are looking for. I recommend the Ram LED Lighted Trailer Hitch Cover, part # 86066. This cover has a chrome coating that appears transparent when the lights are activated. This cover has red LEDs and it will work with both 1-1/4 and 2 inch receivers. The # RP86531 cover you asked about has a black coating that appears transparent just like the chrome cover 86066. To make sure thieves do not get the cover I recommend a locking hitch pin like part # e98880....

  • Does Ram Lighted Hitch Cover 86066 Blink when Turn Signals are On
  • The little converter mentioned is included with the Ram LED Lighted Trailer Hitch Cover - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Chrome Item # 86066. It separates out the turn signals so the cover does not light up when you have either blinker activated. You would not need to purchase any other converter. Some people have found the wiring on this hitch cover is not long enough to plug into the factory 4-Way trailer connector on the back of the vehicle. Extension # 9653P is recommended in those situations.

  • Ram Hitch Cover that Lights Up when Running Lights are On
  • For a Ram hitch cover that does also light up when the running lights are on you would want the part # 86066 instead as the part # CR-007D that you referenced does not light up with the running lights.
    view full answer...

  • How Long is the Cord on the Ram LED Brake and Tail Light Trailer Hitch Cover, # 86066
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Ram LED Brake and Tail Light Trailer Hitch Cover, # 86066, to measure the length of the cord. It has an overall length of 16 inches. If that is not long enough to reach the trailer connector on your 2012 Dodge Ram, you could get an extension like # 9653P which will provide another 12 inches.

  • Is There A Ram LED Emblem In Chrome?
  • I think what you are looking for is the Ram LED Lighted Trailer Hitch Cover - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Chrome, # 86066, and it is available. This chrome emblem does have some black on it for contrast. I've attached a review video for you. If you don't have a locking hitch pin, I'd recommend one as these emblems are often targeted. You can secure it with the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock - Flush Design for 2" Trailer Hitches, # e98880.
