Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Ram 1500 - Curt

Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Ram 1500, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Curt Class IV Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 14374.This what our hitch looks like when it's installed. As you can see, the crosstube is visible; however, it does have a round tube design, so it's going to fit good with the contour of the vehicle. The hitch is nice and flush with the edge of the bumper, so you're not going to have to worry about hitting your legs or your shins on it when loading and unloading the vehicle. Now, this is going to be a Class IV. It's going to be a 2" x 2". Your hitch pinhole is going to be 5/8" in diameter.

It's going to have plate-style safety chain rings, so it's going to be give you plenty of room for different size safety chain hooks.Now, you're going to have a 1,000 pound max tongue weight, which is downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube. You're going to have a 10,000 pound max trailer weight, which is the trailer plus the load included. Now, I do recommend checking your owner's manual to make sure your vehicle can withstand that amount of weight, and you're going to want to pick the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch. Now, you can use weight distribution with this. Tongue weight's going to go up to 1,200 pounds.

Trailer weight's going to go up to 12,000 pounds.Now, as far as the installation goes, this is a very simple install. Going to use existing holes in the frame. It's going to come with all necessary hardware. The only thing I suggest is getting an extra set of hands to help lift the hitch into place.Now, we will give you a couple measurements to help you in deciding on any hitch-mounted accessories you may need, such as bike rack, ball mount, or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outermost part of the bumper will be about 2-1/2".

From the ground to the top innermost part of the receiver tube will be about 19-1/2". Now, let's show you how to get this installed.To begin our installation we've gone ahead and removed the spare tire. What we need to do next is you're going to have a bolt on both sides of the vehicle. It's going to be holding your bumper beam up to your frame, and it's going to be this very forward bolt that we're going to be removing. When you remove it, we're going to hold onto to because we're going to be reinstalling it.

We're using a 13/16 socket. Now, because this is going into a weld nut, I would suggest if you're going to use power tools, loosen it with a wrench first. We'll do that same thing to the other side.Next, we'll take our small skinny spacer block and one of our carriage bolts. We'll take our fish wire, and we're going to thread our bolts and our spacer block onto the inaudible 00:02:38 wire like this. What we're going to do is we're going to do a reverse pull in this large hole. Push the bolt up and the spacer block, pull it back down. At this point, we're going to take off the pull wire. You want to make sure you don't just pull it because the kit only comes with two of them, and you're going to need them for our next step. We're going to do this same thing on the other side of the vehicle.Next, we're going to take one of our pull wires. On the back side of our bumper beam here, we're going to feed it through the hole, and we're going to come out the ends just like that. Then, we're going to take one of our large spacer blocks with square hole. We'll put it on first. Go ahead and push it in the hole. We'll take one of our carriage bolts, thread it on the end. We're going to pull it out like that. Now, we're not going to pull it through the hole just yet. We're going to do the same thing on this one.So, now with an extra set of hands, we're going to put our pull wires through the proper holes, lift our hitch into place. We're going to take our M14 bolts that we removed from our bumper beam brackets. We'll put those in place first, going hold our hitch up so we can put in our remaining hardware.Next, we're going to take one of our flange nuts. We're going to put it on our bolts that are coming down through our frame. Little advice. If you take your finger and you put pressure on the bolt, it makes it a little bit easier when you're putting on the nut. Going to do that same thing on the other side of the vehicle. Two here on the center. Going to remove the pull wires and, again, provide a flange nut. We'll do the same thing on this one.Now, we'll be using a 3/4" socket on all of our hardware that comes in our kit. We'll be using a 13/16 socket on the two bolts that are going into our bumper bracket. Next, we'll torque everything down to the specifications in the instructions. Then, you're going to repeat that on all remaining hardware.Once you have all your hardware torqued down, you can go ahead and reinstall your spare tire. That'll do it for a look at and installation on the Curt Class IV Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 14374, on our 2017 Ram 1500.

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

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

I recently traded in the truck that I bought the hitch for, but I used it after installation.

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

Product has been great. The finish on the hitch receiver has held up beautifully. Thanks for checking.

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

It’s still there. No rust.

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

plan on using it to tow our atv trailer and our new truck didn't come with one, so we needed one put one. 708238

by:

I'm 67 years old with suspect shoulders but with the help of a floor jack I was able to do the installation by myself and it went very easily. One note however, the original frame bolts on the 2019 Ram 1500 Classics are metric but a 13/16 spark plug socket fits them well. 706556

Like others have said a helping hand would be good to have or 2 large bar clamps. Great looking receiver and built to last. 700084

Shipped on time, Looks good, assembly was mostly good, but to get the last screw started we had to put a c clamp on the reciever and pry the legs apart to align everything 692384

Trailer hitch shipped promptly and was as pictured..video was a great help in installing. Overall, very pleased. 691095

Product came in time and neatly packed. Video instructions made this too easy. Just make sure you have a breaker bar, extension bar, and large enough socket(mine required 21mm). Worst part for me was Ram’s janky fitting tools for lowering and raising my spare. Took maybe 45-55 minutes to complete. 690965

Once I figured out how it went up in there and the holes lined up. Piece a cake. Its been a blessing and works excellent on my vehicle. Thanks etrailer. Mark W 690252

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

Package came delivered on time. I didn't have any issues with the box being torn. All hardware was accounted for. The instruction video makes it a breeze. (Just make sure you have a cheater/breaker bar). 614586



- 14374
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

The receiver arrived on time and in good condition. The instructions were clear and easy to follow, which made it seem that it would be an easy installation. While the holes did line up after getting the receiver into place, getting it there was quite a bit of effort. The width was about 1/16" too wide, which meant "shoehorning" this thing in. And doing it without chipping the paint was the hardest part. Take your time, and it will line up... HINT: if you have to really work at getting the receiver into place, do not "pre-fit" the bolts that go into the bumper until after the holes are lined up. I pushed the bolts in while trying to line the holes up, and half the install time was spent getting those buggers out, and feeding them back in.. 496739

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Class IV Trailer Hitch That Fits 2019 Ram 1500 Classic
  • I'm not entirely sure what hitch you mean by "another" but I can tell you that there are two Class IV trailer hitches that fit your 2019 Ram 1500 Classic, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 14374 and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75232. Both of these trailer hitches have a 2" receiver, 10,000 lb towing capacity and 1,000 lb tongue weight capacity. They are bolt-on installations so you will not have to drill to install either on your truck. I have added a link to installs of both...

  • Differences Between Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Part # 14374 and Part # C15572
  • Yes, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 14374 is made of 1/4" thick metal and the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C15572 is made of 3/8" thick metal. They are both a fit for your 2018 Ram 1500. The class IV hitch is about 49 lbs and the class V hitch is about 51 lbs. The profile is the same.

  • 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...

  • I do have an option for you but in order to tow a trailer that size with your 2019 Ram 1500 Classic you are going to need a frame mount trailer hitch, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 14374 is what I recommend as it offers simple bolt-on installation. The etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98852 would not be sufficient. I will say that if you are going to be towing that heavy of a trailer then you will need to install either a set of suspension enhancements like the Timbren...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Should Curt Trailer Hitch Be Crooked on 2019 Ram 1500 Classic
  • The Curt Class IV Trailer Hitch # 14374 really shouldn't look crooked when mounted to your 2019 Ram 1500 Classic. The frame brackets on each side of the hitch are of an equal height so unless something was off on the frame rails of the truck the hitch should appear level. You can certainly try loosening up a couple bolts and re-tightening them to make sure everything is secure. I know it sounds silly but also make sure the truck is parked on completely level ground when examining 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...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Ram 1500
  • That depends on a few things. First you need to consider the capacity of the Curt Hitch part # 13333 that you are interested in. Without weight distribution this hitch has a 600 lb tongue weight capacity and a 6,000 lb total trailer weight capacity. If you know that the trailer you plan to tow when you move will weigh less than that when fully loaded then this hitch would be adequate. If you think you would need more capacity then the # 14374 would be a better choice since it has 1,000...

  • Will the Curt Hitch part # C15572 fit a 2014 Ram 1500 with Dual Exhaust
  • There are no exhaust styles that the Curt Hitch part # C15572 that you referenced is not confirmed to fit. That means it would be totally compatible with your 2014 Ram 1500 with dual exhaust as long as you don't have the factory hitch.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Towing and Tongue Weight Capacity on the Curt Hitch # 13333 that Fits a 2010 Ram Pickup
  • As for towing capacity, the hitch will work fine. However, the tongue weight you provided will be an issue with this hitch. Tongue weight is usually 10 - 15 percent of the trailer weight, in your trailer's case, between 495 - 750 lbs. If your total tongue weight, a loaded ready to tow trailer and any weight behind the rear axle of you tow vehicle, is over 600 lbs, then this could cause failure of the hitch. Because you are already really close to the tongue weight limit, I recommend...

You are correct that the measurement is 8-7/8 inches between the 2 front mounting holes. This is the outside to outside dimension. The center-to-center measurement is 7-3/4 inches.

  • 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,...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver Upgrade for 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 Hemi
  • The factory receiver hitch is rated for 5,000 lbs towing and 500 lb tongue weight. A weight distribution system is recommended for trailers over 5,000 lbs according to the manufacturer's towing guide. For the tongue weight you desire, you can use a Class III hitch or heigher with a weight distribution system. My suggestion is to go with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class IV - 2" # 14374 or the Class V options of # C15572 or # 41948. These all have a 2 inch receiver openings...

  • Higher Rated Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ram 1500 Than Bumper of Truck
  • Yes, going with a frame mounted trailer hitch will give you more capacity than towing with the ball mount hole you have on the rear bumper of your 2017 Ram 1500. This will allow you to utilize the full towing capacity of the truck. The Curt hitch part # 13333 is a confirmed fit for your truck and installs easily so it would be a great option as long as you weren't planning on towing over 6,000 lbs as that is the hitch's capacity. If you do need more towing capacity than that you'd need...

  • Dimensions of Curt Class III Hitch # 14374
  • I have edited a photo for you which shows the bolt hole spacing, measured center to center. I have also provided the drop of the receiver, which is the distance from the top of the receiver tube to the top of the hitch mounting flanges. Keep in mind, this hitch is custom fit for a 2009-2013 Dodge Ram 1500. Altering the hitch to fit your Ford F150 may have an unknown effect on the weight bearing capacity of the hitch, and will also void any warranty coverage.

This adjustable ball mount fits 2 inch hitch receivers, has a 6-1/4 inch drop, a 7-7/8 inch rise, and is rated for use with trailers up to 12,000 pounds. Because of the weight of your trailer, I also recommend using a weight distribution system. I have attached a help article with common questions about weight...
