2010 Dodge Ram Pickup

I decided to try this B&W receiver hitch on my 95 Dodge Ram 2500 after discovering that another well known brand was not going to bolt right on. The B&W had enough distance between the mounting brackets to clear the downward bent lip on the Dodge frame. Installation was straightforward after removing the spare tire and oem Dodge hitch. I assembled everything loosely and set it into position before snugging up the hardware and doing the final torque. The hitch seems well made. The tab for mounting trailer wiring is a nice feature. My only little nit pick is I think some of the frame mount hardware could have been 9/16" instead of 1/2" where it goes through the 1" holes in the frame with the large backing plates. I don't plan on towing more than 10,000 lbs so it will probably be fine. 555697

Great heavy product, been showing it off to friends. Telling to go to etrailer to find parts 424885

- BWHDRH25132

This is the 5th B&W hitch I've had (3 rear mounted receivers and 2 fifth wheel hitches) and the 4th I've bought on etrailer. I'm replacing this particular hitch because I was rear-ended. It totaled the car and, for the second time, my truck is just fine. I had the tow ball with a drop hitch on (also B&W) and it took all of the impact. B&W makes the best quality hitches that I've found. I've never once had an issue, they are made in the USA, and in my opinion worth every bit of the few extra dollars to get something that will last a lifetime. I also find myself coming back to etrailer over and over. No one can beat their customer service. They are, hands down, the best. If you're looking at this review then I think you're in the right place. 419636

This is my4th hitch I have bought from etrailer and I always like shopping here. The customer service is great. The shipping is always fast and unless I screw up the product is what I wanted. It's always a joy when I get to talk to Erica and George. If their is ever a problem with the item being back ordered. Erica will always give me a call to let me know and either wait or substitute an item in place of what I have ordered. George will email you to see if everything is ok with the order and is greatly concerned with making the customer both a happy customer and a satisfied one as well. I don't have it installed yet but I well post pics of it when I do get it installed. I would highly recommend etrailer to any first time buyer, you'll be glad you did...... 406500

1999 Dodge Ram Pickup

The 16K hitch is exactly what I needed. The stock hitch was only rated at 10K. I'm hauling a 12K trailer and I didn't want to roll the dice with the stock hitch. The 16K hitch fit perfectly on my Dodge truck. All needed parts were included and was easy to install. The hardest part was removing the old hitch. Definitely soak the old bolts with PB blaster a couple of days before you remove the old hitch. Customer service was great as well as fast shipping. I'd highly recommend this hitch to anyone who is planning on hauling a heavy trailer. 400993

2000 Dodge Ram Pickup

Product was a easy hook up. Instructions say to assmeble it on the ground and then bolt it up. But if you just have one person put on each of the side plates and then the center section and tighten it down . Still went quickly 389316

It's a good product with prompt delivery. I have ordered with etrailer before, I have always had proper fit and good services. 376803

No complaints at all. I was concerned with the 9" drop and pulling heavy loads but the hitch has held up perfectly with a 10k pound trailer. Buy American. 248826

2001 Dodge Ram Pickup

The quality of products is excellent, the speed of delivery is excellent, and the customer service is excellent! All items were exactly as described and total install time for my hitch, wiring harness, and my six trailer tire downs was less than two hours. I'm impressed and extremely satisfied. Great people to deal with. I'll be back in the future when further needs arise. Thanks again. 223426

1999 Dodge Ram Pickup

I purchased this for a 1999 Dodge Ram Sport. It ended up installing easily enough but the holes on the truck frame did not match up with the hitch. We could only secure it with 2 of the 3 screws. If you have the tools, you could create a 3rd hole in the truck frame but I chose not to. 199428

  • Will the B and W hitch part # BWHDRH25132 be Tall Enough to Install on 1998 Dodge Ram
  • The B and W hitch part # BWHDRH25132 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 1998 Dodge Ram. I confirmed this with B and W. It looks like the hitch will sit up higher than your factory hitch since the vertical mounting brackets are shorter. We had customers come back with the same truck as your say that it fit well. The main difference with this hitch vs. the ones that appear to hang lower is that the vertical height difference appears different because the hitch tube...

  • Yes, the B and W Heavy Duty trailer hitch part # BWHDRH25132 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 6 foot bed that has either a standard or step bumper. For a heavy duty hitch with as much capacity as this hitch has you really aren't going to find a better deal.
