Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2018 Ram 1500 - Curt

Speaker 1: Today in our 2018 RAM 1500, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the curt class 4 custom fit trailer hitch receiver, part number 14374.So here's what our hitch looks like fully installed. Now the cross tube is going to be visible right below the bumper but mainly we're going to see that receiver tube sticking out. It is a class 4 hitch which means it's going to give us that two inch by two inch receiver tube opening and it's got that nice reinforced collar giving it added strength and just an overall finished look to it.Now the way we're going to mount all of our accessories is going to be through this hole here on the side and it's going to accept a standard 5/8 pin and clip. They're not included but you can pick some up on our website using part number PC3.As far as the safety chain connection points go, it's going to be a plate style welded to the bottom. As you can see, we're not going to have any trouble getting most sized hooks on or off. Just keep in mind that if you are using a locking device, that pin hole is pretty close to where the safety chains go so you want to make sure that it doesn't interfere with anything.Now as far as weight capacity goes, our hitch is going to have a 1,000 pound ton weight along with a 10,000 pound gross trailer weight rating.

It is designed to work with weight distribution systems which is going to bump up the towing weight to 1200 pounds and the gross trailer weight rating up to 12,000 pounds. With that in mind, I do want to mention that you always want to double check your vehicles owners manual and make sure you don't exceed the manufacturers recommended weight.I'd like to give you a few measurements that'll help you in deciding for accessories for your new hitch such as a ball mount, bike rack or even a cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most edge of the bumper is going to be right about 2 1/2 inches. From the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube opening, it's going to be right about 20 inches. Now that we've seen what our hitch looks like and gone over some features, let's show you how to get it installed.To begin our installation, we're going to come to our back bumper and we're going to have our bumper support here.

If we move toward the front of our truck, we're going to have one bolt that we're going to have to remove out of that bumper support. I'm going to be using a 21 millimeter socket to pull it out. We're going to want to hold onto this bolt because we are going to be reusing it. We're going to remove the other one on the other side as well.Now if we move forward just a bit, we're going to have a rather large hole in the bottom of our frame rail here. You're going to want to grab your fish wire and we're going to take the smaller of the two spacer blocks.

We're going to slide that right over the coiled end. Then we're going to take our carriage bolt and we're going to thread it onto the coiled end. Now to get our hardware in place, we're going to be doing what's called the reverse fish wire. So you're going to take your bolt and you're going to push it up into the frame and then separately you're going to push that spacer block into the frame and you're going to pull it down. Now since they only provide us with two pull wires in our kit, you're going to want to remove the pull wire but you're going to want to unthread it so it doesn't damage the coiled end on here.

We're going to do that for the other side as well.We're going to the very back of our vehicle where our bumper support it, right behind our license plate. You're going to notice that we're going to have two oblong holes that are in our bumper support. We're going to take that same fish wire and we're going to put it in the oblong hole and on the passenger side, we're going to push it towards the passenger side so that it comes out at the end of the frame rail there. Now you want to make sure that you leave a little bit coming out of that oblong hole but you an still access the coiled end.Now we're going to be doing the same thing. We're going to be taking the large spacer block this time. We're going to slide it over the coiled end. We're going to take another one of our carriage bolts and thread it on. Then we're going to take them and we're going to push them into the bumper support. We're going to pul them towards the center to where they came out of the bumper support here and the bolt sticks out.Now I am going to just leave the fish wire attached to this one and just push it back in to the bumper support so we can actually get our hitch in place. Now we're going to have another one that we're going to have to fish wire into place on that other hole.Now with an extra set of hands, we're going to get our hitch put in place. Just want to go from the back side of the truck and put your pole wires into the center part of the hitch. We're going to lift it up. Actually pull on the bolt leads so the bolt will come out just a little bit. It helps support our hitch. Then we're going to take their factory M14 bolt and thread it back through the hitch and back into the frame.Now on each side, I'm going to come back with that 21 millimeter socket and I'm going to snug up the bolts to make sure that the hitch is going to support itself. We're going to take our flange nuts and for the bolts coming down from the bottom of our frame and go ahead and secure it. We'll put those on hand tight so we can get the rest of our hardware in place. For the bolts on the back of the hitch, I'm going to remove the pole wire. You just want to be careful not to drop that bolt back into the bumper beam. Once you have the pole wire removed, we're going to grab another one of our flange nuts and secure it down. We'll do that for both of our bolts back here.Now for our half inch bolts and nuts, I'm going to come back with a 3/4 inch socket and snug them all up. For our factor M14 bolts, I'm going to use that same 21 millimeter socket and I'm going to torque them down with a specified amount in the instructions. I'll repeat that for the other one as well. I'm going to come back with a 3/4 inch socket and torque down my half inch hardware to the specified amount. We'll repeat that for all of our remaining hardware.With a ll of our hardware torqued down, that'll finish up our install and now all we have left to do is put our spare tire back. That'll finish up your look at the Curt Class 4 Custom Fit Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 14374.

Quick delivery. Excellent customer service. First time I ever ordered anything and had customer service follow up with me about my order. The trailer hitch itself was easy to install. Lots of resources on this website that supplement the directions that come with the product. I will definitely order from etrailer again in the future. 449324

My husband said that this was the easiest hitch receiver that he has ever installed. He got it done in less than 45 minutes and everything went together easily. It has worked great as he has already used it twice. The price was also outstanding as trailer dealers wanted almost double the amount for the exact same one. We received it exactly when we were supposed to also, so it made it easy to plan time to install it. 138458

so i shopped around a bit to try and find the best bang for my buck for a trailer hitch, got recommended to etrailer from a friend. ordering was very pain free and the shipping was very very fast, when i got the box it was a little beat up, the tow hitch was undamaged but very very dusty, i wiped it off and there was no damage to it, installation was fairly simple, some prying was needed to get the holes to line up. but i am very satisifed with how it looks and went it. would def buy from etrailer again. 406732

Excellent price, took free shipping option, was delivered in 3 days! Super fast! Watched product install video, gave me all the information I need to make this a very easy install. Really a quality product and etrailer is a great company to buy from. Would highly recommend buying from etrailer and the Curt is excellent quality product. If they had six stars I would have given them six. 435072

This hitch was a breeze to install. No holes to drill, just a few hand tools (hint: get a breaker bar to remove the 2 factory bolts!). It fit my new 2014 Ram 1500 Quad cab like a glove. Free shipping was fast to the west coast. And as always, eTrailer service was excellent. Thanks Debora! 121093

I like it more now than I did when I installed it! Feels just like I would expect from the factory.

This is the second hitch that I have purchased from Etrailer. The product is very good but the most important is the price and service. They have the best pricing on the net and the products ship right out. I placed my order on Tuesday and recieved it on Friday. 8536

The box arrived sooner than I expected, but just like others have complained about, it showed up unsecured in a loose box with holes in it and the hitch had scratches and damage to the finish caused during shipping. I don't really care about the scratches as no one will really see it when it's installed, but was concerned about rust. I would like to think for a reputable company like etrailer.com they would better wrap the products before shipping them, especially since there are a number of other reviews complaining about the exact same issue. Anyways, I won't completely rule them out yet, I will update my review when I actually install it. 420796

Only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is because it got bent in shipping. Not a lot but enough to not bolt up to the factory bumper bolts strait on. Once I got it lined up correctly it was no problem. Looks good and it definitely sturdy. Will have no problem pulling little pop up camper we plan on getting. 471111

This hitch was good and fit with no problems Installed it with just myself a 2x4, jack, & 2 jack stands to help hold it in place. Came with good instructions the only reason I gave it 4* is because of the position of the horizontal holes for tow hooks/safety chains. The safety chains of my trailer were not able to hook in and hang freely I ended up buying Reese Towpower Safety Chain Clip Quick Links to make hooking the chains easier. 330593

the hitch fit great. very easy to install. it looks great, and sits level under the bumper. only problems were that the hitch looks like it was drop kicked off of the plane by UPS. the box was broken open on both sides where the flange on the hitch sit. while it may be mostly the carriers fault, it seems to be a pretty common review. I would recommend making a foam insert to protect it. while it is a tool for your truck, it kind of sucks to have a bunch of paint chips and scratches on a brand new part. the other problem that I had was that there was no shim to prevent the stress point when you extend off of the bumper bracket. 258843

Product was as advertised and the installation was very easy. everything fit without perfect. I'm not a big guy and I installed it by myself with the car parked on a flat surface. Took me 35 minutes for install. Only concern was that the box was badly damaged during shipping, thankfully product was in good condition and all hardware was there. 351941

The class 3 trailer hitch I ordered was just delivered to my residents by UPS on time. This is the 1st. time I ordered anything from E Trade. A short time after I placed the ordered for the hitch that I wanted I received a call from a sales rep. He informed me they did not have that item in stock and it was going to take a little longer to get it. I informed him I needed in in a shorter time frame and he was able to help me make a change in selecting a different hitch. The hitch is not on truck yet ( this weekend) but so far I'am pleased with ETrade. 363827

Product came within 2 days as I requested 2 day shipping. Got it last night around 6 pm. Got up this morning and installed the hitch. I've never installed one and it took me about 30-45 minutes. It was simple and fast. Bolted right up with no issues. Very impressed with this product. It looks clean and everything sits level. Can't wait to put it to use this weekend. 348391

Hitch arrived very quickly. I installed it soon after with a helper. Instructions were goid, but the online videoes were very helpful. I had a shop check my torque on the bolts, two were loose. All in all easy install. 329255

Shipping and response was great!! Ordered 2 day on a Criday night and had it on Monday. Price of the hitch was good and 2day shipping expense was really good. Only complaint was the hitch did not marry up to frame well. Holes on the hitch 'wings' that connected to frame rail were not aligned too well and resulted in alot of prying. The other thing that seemed really odd was that the hitch did not sit flush against the frame rail. Installation of this hitch requires you to remove an existing bolt from a frame rail bracket...easy enough. But then the hitch sits across both the bracket and the frame rail. The bracket sits off the frame rail about 3-4 mm causing the whole hitch to sit cockeyed and not level. They should have included some spacers to compensate for the gap. I ended up using some large diameter washers cause I needed truck/hitch the next day for a bike rack. But I will fabricate a couple of real spacers when I get back from vacation. To me (I am an engineer), installing the way they have it is a somewhat serous problem as it would put 4 of the 6 main weight carrying bolts in a bending stress. Probably not something you want with 6000-8000 lbs behind you. I will try to attach some pics later. 217899

I ordered hitch for my 14 ram on Monday, and it arrived 3 days later. Wow, that was fast. I didn't even pay for fast shipping. The hitch attached just as the video showed. That's the thing about etrailer. This is the 2nd or 3rd time I have ordered from them. Your stuff gets to you fast, and what you see in the web site is what you get. Great job!!!!! Love thIs website!!! 120815

The kit was an excellent and easy install. The video was perfect for a tutorial. Removing the spare tire was about as much work as installing the hitch!! My Ram 1500 R/T now looks like it was born with a trailer hitch. 83254

Excellent quality, easy installation. Put this on in my driveway in less than an hr by myself. Except for the 45 pound weight, it's not much of a problem. You may need help depending on that. Very clean made product. Mine may or may not ever see weight it is capable of towing, but for not much more cost i think it is worth having. 457424

Great product! Needed a hitch for my Ram 1500, gave etrailer a shot. They were the cheapest I could find. First one that was mailed was bent(first picture). Lazer was a huge help. Excellent customer service! Helped facilitate a hassle free return and sent a new one right away. Would be five stars, if I hadn't tried to fight to get the bent one on by bending it back, as I was instructed to do by another employee(not Lazer). Wasted 3 hours and a lot of patience. Only took about 30 minutes to get the replacement on. Loops great on my truck, can't wait to put it to use!! Thanks etrailer and Lazer! 255965

We were at all times email when the item was being shipped and if we needed additional information to contact them for help. It came sooner than expected. It was absolutely perfect for our truck. It was super easy to instal. We are READY to pull our travel trailer. Will definitely recommend etrailer 110% 176103

As other said, the package is damaged in shipping, causing it to be a little scratched up. No big deal though. I have the 5.7L Hemi with a dual exhaust and it was a pain in the butt to get it in the right place, and to get the old bumper bolts out. Took about 3hrs. Overall, nice hitch so far 657657

The hitch came today by UPS. The box was torn up on 2 corners at no fault of etrailer. The first thing I was worried about was the bolts to install the hitch. Etrailer done a good job taping them to the tongue. The hitch was well made and delivered in timely manner. 636091

by:

This just showed up today, it was what I expected and was the best price on the market. Customer service was great. That being said... it was literally hanging out the side of the box when I got it, and the box had already been taped back together once. Granted UPS drop kicks most of their packages across the country... but they should probably reconsider their packing approach knowing this. 613528

Great hitch very well built installation was only 45 minutes I watched the install video and everything went as the video showed I did this install alone but if you have someone to help you I highly recommend as this is a heavy hitch I would defiantly buy again 607514

My review is close to others. Yes the shipping was fast, box was beat up. That didn’t bother me. It was an easy install (goes better with 2 people) of course but i made due. How ever the holes did not line up like others have stated and had some minor issues which the repair shop will have to address. Once that is done i look forward to pulling my camper this spring. 598563

It's fairly easy to install but it's best to have someone help because it's heavy and too awkward for one person to do it alone. Looks like the hitch is well engineered. 588566

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch
Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Trailer Hitch, Brake Controller and Ball Mount Recommendation for 2017 Ram 1500 w/o Tow Package
  • First thing you'll want is a trailer hitch. For that the Curt hitch part # 14374 is a confirmed fit and would work well. It has a great price and more capacity than needed for the trailer you plan to tow. It can tow up to a 10,000 lb trailer. For trailer wiring you will need to start with a 4-way (if you do not have one). For that you would want the # 119179KIT. From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install a brake controller to activate the brakes...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for Towing a Car Hauler with a 2011 Dodge Ram 1500
  • Between the trailer and the vehicle, you'll likely be towing a load just shy of 6000 lbs. The Draw-Tite Class III hitch you referenced, part # 75662 has a capacity of 6000 lbs towing/ 600 lbs tongue weight, so the load you're carrying might be too much for that particular hitch. I'd recommend confirming the combined weight of the Corvette and the car transporter. If it's under 6000 lbs, the # 75662 would be a good choice. If it's over that amount, I'd recommend a higher capacity hitch like...

  • Curt Custom Fit Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2013 Ram 1500
  • The # C13902 is a multi-fit hitch that fits several newer trucks. The thing is though that they all require a bit of modification since the hitch is a universal design. For a custom fit Curt hitch for your truck you'd want the # 14374 instead. This requires no drilling. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Trailer Hitch Option for a 2011 Ram 1500 Bighorn with OEM Hitch Under the Bumper
  • All of the aftermarket trailer hitches that we carry for your 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 Bighorn state that they will not fit with a factory installed hitch, however, this typically refers to the factory hitches that hang below the rear bumper. I have heard of towing bumpers on Ram trucks, but I am not familiar with a Ram OEM hitch that uses the rear bumper. To determine if one of our trailer hitches will fit on your truck, you will want to look at the round cross tube that runs between the...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2015 Ram 1500 for up to 7,000 Pound Travel Trailer
  • Since you are looking at travel trailers upwards of around 7,000 pounds I recommend a hitch that has a 10,000 pound capacity. But you will also want to check the truck owners manual to determine the towing capacity of your specific 2015 Ram 1500. Whichever is lower, the hitch or the truck, is the capacity you need to go by. The most popular hitch with 10,000 pound capacity that fits your truck is Curt hitch # 14374. I have linked a video showing how the hitch installs. I also recommend...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2010 Dodge Ram 1500
  • Curt Manufacturing offers a few different high quality, made in America hitches for your 2010 Dodge Ram 1500. The right hitch for you will depend on what you'll be towing and how much it weighs. If a 6000 lb towing/ 600 lb tongue weight (maximum amount of weight that can safely be suspended from the hitch) will work for you, you can't go wrong with the Curt Class III hitch, part # 13333. For a higher capacity, 10000 lbs towing/1000 lbs tongue weight, go with the Curt Class IV, part...

  • Class IV Hitch Recommendation for a 2011 Dodge Ram Bighorn
  • If the factory bumper hitch you are referring to has a ball installed in the step bumper and you do not have a receiver hitch that hangs below your bumper and your 2011 Dodge Bighorn Ram truck is a 1500 then you would want to use the Curt Trailer Hitch for the Dodge Ram, part # 14374, that you referenced. However, if you do have a factory receiver hitch that hangs below your bumper you will not be able to install the # 14374. If this is the case you should consult your owners manual...

  • Availability of a Class V Trailer Hitch for a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500
  • The reason that aftermarket hitches cannot be installed on a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 with a factory installed trailer hitch is because the hitch is welded to the rear cross member and cannot be removed. It the hitch on your truck was installed by the dealer and is bolted on, it can be removed and a new hitch installed in its place. If the hitch is bolted on, we do not carry a Class V hitch for your truck, but we do have a Class IV rated and 1,000 pounds tongue weight capacity and 10,000...

  • Trailer Hitch, Wiring, and Accessories for a 2013 Ram 1500 SLT
  • For your 2013 Ram 1500 I recommend Class IV trailer hitch # 14374. It is rated for 1,000 pounds tongue weight and 10,000 pounds gross trailer weight. When used with weight distribution it is rated for 1,200/12,000 pounds. Check the truck owner's manual for the truck's capacities and go by the lower of the 2 ratings, the hitch or the truck. I also recommend etrailer ball mount kit # EBMK2416. It comes with a ball mount with a 3 inch rise or 4 inch drop It also includes a 2 inch ball,...

  • Compatibility of Curt Class IV with Spare Tire of 2013 Ram 1500 ST
  • The rearmost frame cross member or bumper beam of your Ram is essentially the OEM hitch minus the receiver opening. The OEM hitch can be completed so to speak using the Curt # 13333 which would provide a capacity of 6,000 lb gross towing/ 600 lb tongue weight. In order to achieve a higher tongue weight capacity (10,000 GTW/1,00TW), you would need to use the Curt Class IV # 14374 that uses the frame members for its two forward-most attachment points and the bumper beam for its rear...
