Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 - Curt

Today on our 2014 Dodge Ram pickup 2500 series, we'll being installing the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number C15409. Now here's what our hitch looks like installed on our vehicle. Now we'll go ahead and give you a couple of measurements in helping you choose some accessories for your hitch such as a ball mount, a bicycle rack or a cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper is approximately 3-1/2 inches. From the top of the opening of the receiver to the ground is approximately 20-1/4 inches. Now let's go ahead and install our hitch. Let's go ahead and first begin by pointing out the attachment points that we'll be using to mount our hitch. There's a total of six attachment points, three on each side. Now for the two forwardmost locations, one on each side, we'll be using a 3-inch long square hole spacer block, the 9/16 carriage bolt and the 9/16 flange nut.

I'll go ahead and use the fish wire provided with the kit. Now the fish wire are harder in the forwardmost locations. We'll go ahead and feed it through the mounting location, coming out on the access hole here on the side of the frame. Now we'll take our 9/16 carriage bolt, thread it on to the fish wire and pull it down into place. We'll then go ahead and remove the fish wire from the carriage bolt. Now at the rear location, we'll take the smaller hole spacer block and we'll feed it in from the rear of the frame, lining it up with our mounting location.

Now we'll go ahead and take our fish wire, feed it through the rear mounting location, through the square hole spacer block. Now we'll take our 9/16 bolt, feed it on to the end of the fish wire and pull it down into place. We can then remove the fish wire from the carriage bolt. Then we'll repeat the same process over here on the driver's side. Now in this particular vehicle, we found that we needed to add a 1/4-inch round hole spacer block to the forwardmost mounting location. We'll go ahead and use a little bit of electrical tape to hold the spacer block on the hitch.

That way it doesn't move as we raise it up into place. Now it's a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you raise the hitch up into position. Once we have our hitch raised up into position, we'll go ahead and install our four flange nuts. With our four flange nuts hand-tightened down, we'll go ahead and center up the hitch as well as line up each of the side-mounting locations. Once we have that done, we'll go ahead and tighten down the four flange nuts. Keep in mind that anything that we do to one side we'll go ahead and repeat over on the other side. And then torque them to the manufacturer's specifications. Now here's the hardware that we'll be using for each of the side-mounting locations.

We'll be using a 9/16 bolt, a 9/16 flat washer, two round hole spacer blocks in between the hitch and the tow hook, and then on the other side of the tow hook, another round hole spacer block followed by a 9/16 flange nut. To install the hardware, we'll go ahead and take our 9/16 flat washer, slide it over the bolt. We'll then take two of our round hole spacer blocks and feed them up in between the tow hook and the trailer hitch itself. We'll then feed the 9/16 bolt with the flat washer on it from the outside of the vehicle toward the center, going through the hitch, both round hole spacer blocks and finally the tow hook. Once the bolt's in place, we'll go ahead and slide another round hole spacer block on followed by the 9/16 flange nut. Now that we have all of the hardware loosely installed, we'll go ahead and tighten it down and then torque it to the manufacturer's specification. And that will do it for our installation of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number C15409 on our 2014 Dodge Ram pickup 2500 series. .

This ball mount has served it purpose well. I purchased a new travel trailer that is heavy enough to require a weight distribution hitch when using the factory installed Class III hitch on our Dodge RAM 2500. I decided to upgrade to a Class V hitch combined with this ball mount to take delivery of the TT in order to defer decisions about a WD hitch until the actual load conditions were known. The hour trip home with this setup worked very well. Once the trailer was outfitted I was able to determine the actual tongue weight of the loaded trailer and I decided to purchase an appropriately sized Reese Straight Line WD hitch. However, this ball mount comes in handy for moving the trailer short distances without hassling with the WD system. The purchase experience through etrailer.com was first rate. 370092

I ordered a Curt trailer hitch for my 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel with a factory installed Class IV hitch. Everything was as advertised. I did find the instructions lacking in detail. In particular, the instructions did not mention the the bumper bracket nuts and bolts on both sides interfered with the installation. These bolts, which could not be removed due to the nuts being welded in place, required that the hitch be positioned about 3 inches to the rear and 1/2 inch below the truck frame and then slid forward to align the mounting bolts. other than that. the installation was pretty straight forward. The hitch itself is substantial and well built. 428060

Product came in a timely matter. One hole needed to be drilled out(passenger side farthest to the rear bumper)??????. Not fun. Fishwire system is great. Almost lovely. Thankfully had a drill bit to fix manufacturing problem. 470385

Solo installer, took about two hours total to install using floor jack and cribbing. Had minor alignment problems and the rear spacers (item no. 6) had to be turned 90 degrees from the way indicated on installation diagram to align with rear holes on bottom of frame rail. So had to fish both spacers out of frame rail over top of bumper beam and reinstall. This hitch will allow me to safely tow my toy hauler that has a hitch weight of 1450 pounds. OEM hitch rating was only 1200 pounds. 760378

I’ve had this hitch on my ram 2500 for a year now. My truck is lifted with big tires. This hitch keeps me from needing such a long drop hitch. 489086

This hitch sits far too low on my truck to be usable. It's only 11.5 inches from the ground and sits a whole 7" below the bumper, significantly reducing ground clearance and requiring use of an inverted drop hitch to tow any trailer sitting higher than 11.5 inches - basically all my heavy duty trailers. It's low enough to look ridiculous on a 2500 and my neighbors agree. I spoke with etrailer and they refused to return this hitch even though I had never towed with with. They consider a loosely bolted up hitch "used." They also refused to offer a discount on ordering a replacement hitch. On top of it all, the exact same hitch is $66 cheaper on other sites where returns would be no issue at all! Exceptionally disappointed! 487344


Comments
John,Thank you for your review. This hitch is designed to install below the OEM hitch on your Ram truck. The hitch does sit lower because it is under the factory hitch. According to Curt it is not a good idea to remove the factory hitch because it is welded to a cross member that is an important part of the vehicles frame structure.

Hitch arrived in a timely fashion. The box was damaged in shipping which is not unusual for things shipped to Alaska. Product was undamaged and all contents were accounted for. Installation required the removal of some unused camper tie down brackets.It also required the removal of the after market receiver because of clearance issues. If it had been the factory receiver it would have not required removal. Because if clearance issues at the rear of the frame rails the bolt heads would not fit through the openings. It required using a additional piece of wire in conjunction with the one provided to fish the rear most bolts through from the forward openings in the frame rails. After all of the bolts and washers were installed I lassoed the bolts with a piece of safety wire to keep them from inadvertantly being pushed back up into the frame rails during installation of the hitch since I was working alone and using a forklift to position the hitch. I did remove the spare tire prior to starting just to make access to everything easier. Fit and finish of the receiver are good. 441663

I put this on under my Dodge Ram stock class 3 hitch, although now after doing it, I wish I had removed the stock hitch which after I started I noticed it wouldnt have been hard, I heard it was part of the cross member but it is bolted in, so the new hitch would take it place, someone posted a picture of what both hitches together look like, you lose 4 inches by mounting this under the stock hitch,, I had to buy a new distribution hitch but after messing with new taller hitch I should have turned my old one over and tried that first,, problem is my driveway is dirt and not level all around I have to go to a parking lot to mess with it,, ( Shank I think the part is called),, so before you buy look at your dodge and see if your hitch is removable, if not this is a great hitch,, 333279

I bought the the Curt hitch for my 2004 dodge 2500. It was delivered quickly. The install was quite easy. My truck was not on a hoist. The bolts were fished through the holes with ease and I had a friend help steady the hitch while I jacked it up underneath the truck and with a little jimmying around the OEM hitch, it slid into place perfectly. All the bolt holes lined up, thereby easing a major fear of mine. One piece of advice. I had a rolling jack. Made it very easy. Also, it may seem like it won't fit, but lift the back,( as in closest to cab) into place first and then jack up the front and slide into place. It took me about an hour. Very happy with Etrailer and Curt and would recommend either to anyone. 254037

This is mounted on my 2003 Dodge/Cummins, 3/4 ton truck. The truck now has 107,000 miles, and 95,000 of them or more have been pulling heavy travel trailers. The factory hitch was showing sign of wear, so I bought the Curt. The Curt class 5 hitch is much heavier and is going to work much better than the class 4 hitch that came with the truck when I ordered it new. The only thing I don't like, is that because of the factory installed original hitch, which is actually the rear cross member of the Dodge truck, the Curt is designed to fit under the factory hitch, and you have to leave the factory hitch in place. It's not a big problem, it just look's sort of odd. The tolerances on the Curt a much tighter fit, and a lot less slop than the factory hitch. 204118

Took me about 25 or so minutes to install on my 08 Dodge 4x4. Except for the mounting bracket from the stock hitch receiver getting in the way of feeding the mounting bolts inside of the frame the install went smooth. The construction of this receiver makes it look like it belongs on a tank. I'm sure the bolts or truck frame will break before this thing does. I can't believe how fast this thing shipped. It had to go across the country and still got to my house in 3 days ! 160203

Can't say enough good about how fast it got here and the fit was great, all holes lined up, the wires supplied worked to get hidden bolts in place. It did take me a little longer than the chart said but finding tools was a part of that. The very next day I took my trailer on a 350 mile round trip to the Mulberry river in northern Arkansas, sharp turns ruff roads and it worked great. 131620

  • High Capacity Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2011 Ram 2500 with Factory Hitch
    The only options we have for a Class V high capacity trailer hitch for your 2011 Dodge Ram 2500 are ones that are going to fit below the factory hitch. Since the factory hitch is essentially part of the rear chassis of the truck it has to be left on. The most popular option is the Curt Hitch # C15409 which has a 2,550 lb tongue weight limit. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

    The correct hitch for your truck will depend on what capacity you were needing. For instance, if you'll be towing trailers weighing less than 6000 lbs, a Class III hitch like the # 75662 would be ideal. The hitch would bolt to the existing crossmember and the rear bumper. For a heaver trailer (assuming your truck has the necessary capacity), a Class IV hitch like # 14361 would work well. The Curt # C15409 you referenced is only a fit for trucks already equipped with the factory hitch. You...

  • Curt Trailer Hitch Fit for 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Mega-Cab 4x4 Short Bed Pickup
    Curt's 2-inch Class V hitch # C15409 is a confirmed fit on your 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 with factory hitch and factory bumper. The 2-1/2-inch hitch part # C15809 is also confirmed to fit.

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500
    If Dodge says that the towing capacity for your 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 is 7,000 lbs then that is the heaviest trailer you can tow. A towing setup is only as strong as it's weakest component. If you were to install a hitch with a heavier capacity than what your vehicle has it would not allow you to tow a trailer above the capacity for the vehicle. If you can find a lighter trailer so that your setup weighs less than the capacity for your vehicle you could install the B and W Hitch part #...

    The hitch you have referenced, Curt Class V Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # C15409, is a 2 inch receiver, and can be installed along with an OEM receiver, on your Dodge Ram 3500.

    The Curt hitch part # C15409 is a fit for your 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 Short bed without a factory hitch.

  • Recommended Universal Class V Hitch and Brackets for Custom Bumper Fit
    I reached out to my contact at Curt and they said they don't have a custom fit for your Ranch Hand Legend rear bumper on any Ram vehicles yet. Your best option is to use a weld on hitch option like # 41991 which is 68 inches wide and then 16 inch tall brackets like # 4916. This will allow you to customize your fit as needed for the drop of your bumper and give you a solid Class V hitch.
