Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2002 Dodge Ram

Today were working on a 2002 dodge ram 1500. Were going to install Curt hitch part number 13326. Here are a couple of measurements that will assist you with selecting accessories for you new hitch, such as a drawbar, a bike rack or a cargo carrier. In the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most point of the bumper, its 2 and a half inches. From the top of the receiver tube to the ground is 19 and inches. Now, lets go ahead with the installation.

Our first step is to actually raise the bumper cover so we can access a couple of hardwares underneath it. To do that there are several locking tabs underneath that we will need to squeeze and push up to raise the cover. Now we can pry up on the cover to separate it from the steel. You can see there are 3 inch boll holes. Were going to use the outer 2 and install our 5 8ths flat headed bolts between the plastic and the bumper.

Now well carefully put our hitch in position then secure it with a 5 8th flange nuts. Were just going to install our fasteners finger tight at this time. Next we need to install our forward fastener. The outer 2 most holes of our hitch will be our point of going through the steel bumper and fastening through the outer 2 most holes. To do this were going to take our fish wire or bolt leader and go into our mounting hole and run our bolt leader out to the end of the tube of the bumper, go ahead and take our block, slide it onto our bolt leader and take our half inch carriage bolt and thread it onto our bold leader.

Now go ahead and take my wire or bold leader and pull bolt into position. Once in position, I will go ahead and remove the bolt leader and install my half inch flange nut. We will repeat the same process as we did on the drivers side. With all our fasteners installed, well go ahead and tighten them down. With all my fasteners tightened down, Ill go ahead and torque the specifications as indicated in the instructions.

With all our fasteners torqued to specifications, well go ahead and reinstall the plastic bumper cover. And that will complete the installation of our Curt hitch part number 13326 on a 2002 Dodge 1500.

Product is great. As expected. The service needs bragged about as well. I ordered a different hitch for my 02 dodge first. It came in, that's when I found out that my 02 identifies as a 03. The return process and ordering of the right hitch for my truck, was a flawless procedure. Thanks for your help! 617819

I bought a used Dodge pickup a few years back but it didn't have a hitch on it. I took it to a few different shops and asked them what it would take to get a hitch put. For some reason no one knew what to do. Then I, by chance, punched up "Installing Hitch on Dodge" on youtube and etrailer came up right away and explained exactly what I needed and how to put it on. Of course I got on the website and everything was right there ready to order. Super easy and clear. Package arrived today and I test fit it today. It's perfect. I highly recommend etrailer.com to everyone. 580918

I am extremely happy with this solution. The instructions were well thought, just like the design. I installed this hitch in about 25 minutes and the fit and finish is perfect. I was very happy with the price and shipping. Delivery was quick; right to my front door in about 3 days. This solution saved me about $100 over the estimate given to me by the local "trailer and moving van" rental place. 520434

I havent used the hitch hardware much but I like it. The tailgate is the star. I like it a lot and the open design makes parallel parking in the city so easy. I also get a lot of questions and nice comments about the look.

SUPER EASY to install; complete in the 30 minute forecasted timeframe NO PROBLEM!

I was apprehensive to install this as I was used to the "traditional" receiver hitches...... I was pleasantly surprised at how robust it was built and the quality of it…… the install took me less than 30 minutes (including fishing the bolts through the bumper support arm). I installed it with the Hopkins (#37185) 7 pole and 4 pole trailer light kit that fit right in the hole in my bumper (2002 Dodge ram)…. Makes for a nice setup. 6337

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Hitch Applications for a 2003 Dodge Truck
  • I would recommend the Curt Class IV Trailer Hitch, item # 14361, for your 2003 Dodge truck. This is a frame mount hitch which will not require you to remove the knockouts in the factory bumper cover and it has a higher towing capacity which will allow for more towing options and greater safety when towing. There are no pitfalls to this hitch that I know of. The Curt Class III Trailer Hitch, item # 13326, is also a good hitch the only downfall is that if the tongue is overloaded the bumper...

The Curt trailer hitch that you referenced, # 13326 , will fit your Ram. This hitch will fit 2002 Dodge Ram 1500s and 2003 Dodge Ram 1500s that were built before 11-1-02.

  • For your 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class IV - 2" # C14020. This is the only trailer hitch receiver confirmed to fit your truck that will not require a weight distribution system for the trailer weight you will be hauling. It has a 10,000 lb capacity without or a 12,000 lb capacity with a weight distribution system. Another option is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 13326.

  • Will the Curt Class III Receiver Hitch Fit a 2002 Dodge Ram Pickup with 10-01 Build Date
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch for the 2002 Ram, item # 13326, is designed to fit all Dodge Ram 1500 pickups with a build date before 11/02. If the beam on the hitch has mounting holes that are 12-1/2 inches apart you should be able to mount the hitch on your vehicle with no problems. If your Ram is a 2001 or a 2002 with build date after 11/01 you will need a cross frame style hitch like the Curt Class IV Hitch, item # 14361. I have included instructions for each of these hitches for you to...

  • Does Curt Hitch # 13326 Fit 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 without Factory Hitch
  • I checked with Curt and the part # 13326 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 without factory hitch that was built before November of 2002. I attached an install video for this hitch on a similar 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 for you to check out.

  • Will the Curt Hitch 13326 Replace the OEM Hitch On a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT
  • Yes, if the build date on your 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT was before 11/2002 (see door jamb sticker) then the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13326 will replace the factory trailer hitch which is held in with four bolts. I confirmed this with Curt for you. If you have a build date after 11/2002 then you will need to use the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13361 instead as you technically have a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT style undercarriage. The above two options both come with the...

  • Curt Trailer Hitch # 13326 Installation on 2002-2003 Dodge Ram 1500
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13326 will only utilize that spacer plate (black bar) if a gap exists between the hitch and the frame. You won't see that used in the two attached videos. It explains where it would be used in the attached installation details.

  • Trailer Hitch Fit for 2003 Dodge Ram 1500
  • Thank you for the photo; due to the beam that hangs there isn't going to be a way for hitch # C13320 to install properly on your 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 because the beam will interfere. Instead you can use the Draw-Tite hich # 75135 which has a tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs and towing capacity of 5,000 lbs and bolts onto the beam underneath your bumper. This hitch will work UNLESS you have a rollpan bumper on your Ram. Should that be the case you will need Curt hitch # 13326.

This hitch offers a 500-lb tongue weight (TW) capacity and includes the required installation hardware. I have linked an installation video for you showing an application in your same truck.

The Curt Class III Trailer Hitch # 13326 is the one with the most capacity that will fit (assuming you do not have a factory hitch) and it's capacity is 5,000 lbs towing and 500 lbs tongue weight. That capacity is doubled to 10,000 lbs towing and 1,000 lbs...

  • Dodge Rams that were built after November 1, 2002 for the 2003 model year have a different frame design. Which increased their tow capacity quite significantly. Because of that this hitch receivers available are designed with a GTW of 5000 pounds for models with an 8 foot bed. The hitch receviers, Curt # 13326 and Draw-Tite # 75135 both increase in GTW to 10,000 when used with weight distribution.

  • Correct Curt Trailer Hitch for 2003 Dodge Ram 1500
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt regarding the issue you had installing the Curt Trailer Hitch # 13333 on your 2003 Dodge Ram 1500. He said what you are describing sounds like your particular Ram was built before 11-1-2002. The issue is that the 2003 model Ram was kind of a split year, so if the truck was actually built before 11-1 then the correct hitch is the Curt # 13326. The Curt # 13333 that you tried to install is for models built after 11-1-2002. To further verify this you can...
