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.

Looks fabulous, but needs an extension to the plug-in in order to reach the factory installed plug on my 2011 Dodge Ram. 661551

The product is great and love it! it lights up great and is an easy install. The only draw back is it does not work with the break light function with the 4 pin connect for some reason. Etrailer has been fantastic to deal with! 594025

Still working and looking good!

Really like the extra look this gives me 2500 RAM while protecting the hitch box, held in with the new hitch lock pin I got also. Also really like the snoblock windshield and wiper cover. Shipping is always quick and customer follow up is great. 592913

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

First lite failed .after one month in use.Second one is in use now..we'll see what happens.. 478461

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

It started rusting but good product 465644

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

Everything was perfect except one thing it didn't have a long enough cord to plug it in 444967

Its not hooked up I didnt have a long enough cord to hook it up so its just on the truck but its not hooked up

Thanks for your feedback we do have a 4-way flat extender available as part # HM47115
48" Long 4-Pole Loop with Cover
that would help you get the full functions of this lighted hitch cover.

Bought it for someone else....they were extremely pleased with the quick shipping & the quality of their products. 385141

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

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

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

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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....

  • 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.
