Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class IV - 2" - 14361

This fully welded trailer hitch receiver bolts onto your vehicle's frame with no welding required. Powder coated steel is sturdy and corrosion resistant.


Package was damaged, and paint was chipped. Quality of the shipping and packaging department needs to be improved. Hitches have weight to them and need to be more protected and boxes need to be better quality for strength.

Thank you for letting us know! I recommend touching up the hitch with a rust resistant paint like Rustoleum prior to installation. I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.


The hitch is well built, and exactly what I was looking for: a beefier option than the factory that sits up close to the bumper. The factory receiver would bend down with less than the rated tongue weight.

Since my truck came with the factory towing package, I had two options cut the receiver portion off of the bumper brace, or remove the bumper brace. I didn't like the idea of removing the bumper brace, so I opted to cut off the factory receiver. This can be done with a combination of cut-off discs and a long metal cutting blade on a powered hack saw.

The specifications for this product state that this is only for the 8'bed. I was told that there would be some slight interference with an exhaust hanger, that could be modified. I didn't encounter any issues with the exhaust, and the only modification needed was to drill 1/2" holes for the forward mounting bolts.

Since the bolts need to be dropped in through the frame rails, it is fantastic that Curt includes a special tool to guide the bolts into position. They would have been a real bear to install without them.

There could be potential to reinforce it further by connecting the receiver to the bumper support. I debated this, but decided to wait to see if it needs any with the loads I will be hauling.

The packaging it was shipped in was simply a cardboard box, so of course there wasn't much left of the box by the time it arrived. Fortunately the Curt's powder coating was substantial, and not much scratching occurred, but I wouldn't recommend for a show truck.


It was a great hitch that fit perfectly. Easy to follow instructions



It was installed on a friends wifes truck and its working as advertised. Great product that easy to install

2005 Dodge Ram Pickup

I had a difficult time finding & choosing a receiver hitch for my older Dodge until I checked The amount & quality of the information available made it much easier to find an applicable hitch. I was pleasantly surprised with their best price guarantee & at how quick it arrived. There was a little bit of a learning curve with the install kit, but again, the quality information & tip videos on the etrailer site made the job very easy...& as advertised for my hitch...NO DRILLING REQUIRED! I would recommend to anyone needing towing equipment & will use them again myself in the future.

J G.


Still as advertised...Perfect! Would buy again!

2004 Dodge Ram Pickup

Hitch arrived earlier than expected. Box was beat up and hitch paint marked up. One nut somehow came out of the bag but thankfully did not fall out of the box. Hitch could have been wrapped so shippers couldn’t take away from the factory finish. Beyond that, hitch was easy to install. The wire to fish through to pull the bolts into place was brilliant once I realized you push it through then attach the bolt into it.



No issues with the hitch after 6000 miles towing wit it. Still looks as new, minus the original shipping chips.

2003 Dodge Ram Pickup

This is a great receiver hitch - well made, is a true no drill installation and fits the ball mount perfectly on my 2003 Dodge Ram 2500.

However, the directions need a bit of clarification/re-writing since on a Ram 2500 (and possibly other Ram trucks) the fasteners need installed in a particular order due to space restrictions. I'd recommend the following procedure. Install the square and rectangular washers used in the frame tubes. You'll need a 3 foot piece of #12 copper wire and some tape to get the rectangular washer into position. It looks like it'd go through the frame hole but mine was just a bit too big so I attached the wire to it and fished it into position like you'll do with the screws later.

Next, attach one of the screws to the fish-wire. Have a buddy help hoist the hitch into place and then use the fish wire to get a bolt into the rearmost vertical hole near the end of the tube. Screw on the nut - repeat on the other side. Align the hitch, then tighten down and torque to 110 lb-ft. This needs done since there is almost no way to properly torque it with the flange bolt installed...just not enough room. See photo.

Install the other fasteners and torque down...done!

Look forward to towing a travel trailer with this hitch!


ordered and delivered


Solid hitch and easy install. Aftermarket exhaust was in the way so it took a little longer than normal due to having to move hanger mounts.



Great, no issues. Still looks brand new.


Thank you---for your incredible service and help. I really appreciate communicating with your service people. UPS lost my first ordered hitch but e-trailer made everything right. The second hitch didn't arrived on Monday but did arrived on Wednesday evening.
I'm thankful for the great service of e-trailer and those who still care about customers.

I am completely satisfied with the service I received from etrailer! I contacted customer service through email and was provided with an expert reccomendation that completely answered my needs. I can't wait to get all the pieces installed!


Very easy and quick installation. Simple and good instructions. The leading wire was very helpful.


So far I have nothing bad to say about the product, or the company. I ordered it last week and even with a holiday I still got my order within 5 days. Easy instructions little time. The true test of the product will be in a couple weeks. But I will definately be using this website again, and will be recomending it to all my friends. Thanks All

  • Correct Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 Made After and Before Nov. 2002
    If the white sticker inside the driver door jamb on your 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 reads 07/2002 as the date of manufacture, the correct Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver for you will be part # C14020, not part # 14361 which is for trucks made after 11/2002. This trailer hitch has the same class IV rating, 2" receiver tube opening, and plenty of capacity for your 6,500 lb camper just like the one you were looking at. It also offers a completely drill free installation and is made right here in the USA.

  • Why Won't The B&W Trailer Hitch Receiver Fit a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Short Bed With Factory Receiver?
    The B&W Heavy-Duty Trailer Hitch Receiver # BWHDRH25211 we found hit a factory exhaust hanger on the short bed version of your 2005 Ram 1500. While this will fit with a simple relocation of the hanger we put the note saying it will only work on the 8' bed since it requires modification. Since you want the receiver to fit snug as possible to your factory bumper you might consider the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 14361 since the B&W and all other receivers designed to fit with the factory...

    All of our trailer hitches that fit your 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 with a factory hitch, will sit below the factory hitch.

  • Class IV 2014 Ram 2500 Quad Cab with Factory Hitch Recommendation
    The Curt Hitch part # 14361 is designed to fit trucks without the factory hitch. I cannot recommend it for you since your factory hitch is built into the bumper beam which is built differently on the trucks with or without the factory hitch. It hangs lower and more to the rear of the vehicle for trucks with the factory hitch, and the opposite on vehicles without it. Since I cannot recommend you remove the bumper beam the best option is to go with a hitch like the part # 41929 which will...

  • Curt High Capacity Hitch for 2003 Ram 3500 with OEM Hitch
    For a high-capacity hitch that fits under the OEM hitch, you would use the Curt Class V, part # C15409, which is the only hitch Curt offers that is compatible with the OEM hitch. In order to install this hitch, your truck must have the factory bumper. As you can see in the install instructions, no part of the OEM hitch would to be removed.

  • Best Trailer Hitch for a 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT 4x4 to Tow a 4,500 Pound Trailer
    Curt trailer hitch # 14361 would certainly do the trick and it does fit your 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT 4x4. But this hitch might be a bit of an overkill since its capacity is 10,000 pound gross trailer weight. It is a great option if you will be towing a heavier trailer in the future. But if you do not anticipate towing any more than the 4,500 pound trailer then I recommend hitch # 13333 which is rated for 6,000 pound gross trailer weight and 600 pounds tongue weight.

The white tag on the driver door jamb will tell you the date the truck was manufactured. Neither of the above hitches will require any drilling for installation as they install using pre drilled holes in the frame rail.
