I bought this because it was cheaper then getting it at the dealer. Install was easy and quick. Had to make a few trips the hardware store because I didn't have an Allen socket big enough. I've towed with it several times and it works great. I would highly recommend this for anyone that needs a hitch. 592878

I found a 2017 RAM pickup with 11K miles and equiped perfectly except no hitch. I purchased the truck and looked for a hitch. etrailer made it simple to find a good choice at a good price with video instructions for the installation. I installed in minutes and have been completely satisfied. 583175

2016 Dodge Ram Pickup

After one year the hitch has been working flawlessly on my 2016 1500 Ram. I have used it to tow everything from open trailers containing riding mowers to a horse trailer (containing goats, but still heavy as heck). I admit I had some concerns at first, since the hitch didn't come with the truck and I was the one who installed it, but those went away after my first tow. Since I installed it the hitch has never moved even a hair, it is totally rock solid, it looks like it came with the truck, honestly it's just everything I could have wished for, and actually much cheaper than I would have guessed for something this heavy and made this well. The only advice I would give is to buy some fishing tape to help with the install. The provided install wire is ingenious and well built, but it was exactly the length required and nothing more. I'm not a mechanic, and I'm not used to installations, so I used some fishing tape I already had to increase its length, as I was worried about losing grip on the provided install wire. I probably wouldn't have needed to worry, but the extra fishing tape made the install really easy. Overall a great product, and at the price, just a great value. I love etrailer.com, I have had nothing but good experiences here. 628485

I installed the hitch within minutes. Very easy to mount to my Dodge Ram 1500. Only thing was I had to buy a large star tool to tighten the bolt on top. I used it this past weekend pulling my 24 ft travel trailer and it gave me no problems. 440890

Awesome. . Perfect fit for my 2013 Ram..Easy to install , especially with all the hardware that's included. I had read previous reviews and noticed a 1/2 inch hex key was needed so I purchased that before the hitch arrived that way I was ready to install. From the time I opened box , dropped spare tire,install and tighten the hitch to jacking back up the spare and being tow ready in 30 min. Thanks etrailer for a great product at a great price.. I am a satisfied customer. 119745

After reading up on your hitch and it's installation, I was convinced I could do this myself ~ except for not being able to tighten things adequately. [I'm all of 71 yrs young.] Owner of the truck, hubs, Papa Gene at 86 yrs young, has no business groveling on the hard ground on his bad back to do the job ! As he figured [incorrectly] that the spare would have to come off from the undercarriage, he elected to have a more able, [disabled] neighbor do the job. As your instructions indicated, the job took all of 30 minutes, and no, the spare stayed in place. Hubs is ready now, to haul cedar logs to be milled for return so that he may build more furniture! 360519

This hitch has been great. In the past year, I have moved out of an apartment and into a house. I have used this hitch constantly to pull trailers full of furniture, snowmobiles, pop up campers, lawn equipment... you name it! The hitch is still sturdy and gives me piece of mind while pulling a trailer.

Went on without a "hitch"! But seriously, the hitch went on without a problem. The first one I ordered was welded completely crooked. I was p*ssed! I took pictures and sent them off to customer service. There is no doubt about etrailer's Customer Service Team. They are second to none. My replacement hitch was on its way to me before I even had the crooked one in the mail. The hitch, bolts, nuts and those wires that allow you to pull the bolts and retainer plates through the frame, all quality parts and easily went on. They have instructions and a great video of how to install it on my 2015 Ram 1500. Thank You etrailer for a smooth and pleasant transaction. 306495

Ive used it quite a few times. I towed one of my cars to have a new transmission installed, a rented mini excavator twice during the 2017 summer. It is definitely doing its job pulling its weight.

Wow. These folks make sure their communication is there. They emailed me when the product was shipped and when I received it. It was the Curt Class III 2" Trailer Hitch. It was so simple to install, I couldn't believe it. It took 20 minuets to install. It would have only took 15 minuets if I had went exactly by the instructions. But I was skeptical about the fish wire & used 1 round of electrical tape around the fish wire holding the bolt in place. It took an extra 5 minuets to remove the tape I put on for the fish designed for this job to work. I didn't think this flimzy wire would do it. Boy was I wrong. So on the other side I went exactly by the instructions and did not add the tape. It went in & in place like the instructions said. So easy. My advise is to go exactly by the instructions! If it doesn't tell you to add to don't! These folks know exactly how it should go. So if you go exactly by the instructions, you will walk away in 15 with hitch installed! I will recommend this hitch to everyone I know that needs one. 340994

Shipped fast. Etrailer support was excellent, there was a concern with my order and it didn't ship on time so they refunded my extra payment for 2 day shipping and still shipped it 2 day. Installation was easy, I didn't even drop the spare all the way to get to the bolt holes through the rear cross bar. Fitment with the spare and in hitch in place is tight. The top bolt barely handled the required torque. Installation was a breeze. Can't wait to use it this weekend. 213773

2008 Dodge Ram Pickup

First let me say what a well made quality product this is. I have a 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 minus all of the other things that happened to me it really only did take about 20 minutes. I had issues getting my spare out of the way and used a box wrench instead. I also had the misfortune of loosing the plate and screw in my bumper tube. So let me offer you some advice. If you have a tube that is open at both ends be thankful. I attached the two wires provided together with a little electrical tape and a nail where the two wires were joined to make it rigid. I fished the lines through the entire tube from end to end and gently pulled the other plate through pulling the dropped one out. This took awhile and a little cussing on the way. I have big fingers so I recommend once you have the bolt sticking out through the tube and trailer hitch I used the fishing wire halfway around the top of the bolt and put the wire flush against the hitch at the farthest thread back and held the bolt in place that way while I thread on the nut it wouldn't drop back in. Because hearing that klinck sound when it falls isn't pleasant and leads to that moment of oh crap. I did call the manufacturer and one of the service people called me back just as I was fishing it out. They recommended the same thing. Hope this helps anyone that has the same problem I did and we are off to Glacier National Park and many other destinations. 16517

Arrived quickly and no problems with the contents. The installation was pretty easy and I didn't even need to remove my spare tire. It took me about 1 hour maybe to complete. I've yet to try it out with a load but I feel confident it will perform very well. It added tongue weight strength to my 2019 Ram 1500 by bolting into the support as opposed to only the bumper. 673842

2019 Ram 1500 Express Classic - hitch fits like it should but there was one small minor issue. The plastic bumper cap that fits on the visible side of the bumper WILL NOT fit back on. The cap is very flat and interferes with the large bolt on top of the hitch. The bolt has a tapered head shank to "center" the hitch when torqued down. The head of that bolt will not sit flush with the bumper so the cap will not clip back on. They need a lower profile bolt head or a bumper cap that has a larger dome to allow for clearance. So the hitch fits but it doesn't look very good. I have not been able to find a bolt weight rated for this hitch that has a lower profile and have not found a suitable replacement bumper cap with a crown/dome on it. I'm not happy with how it looks but it's a great quality and fully functional hitch from a respected brand. I called customer service and they looked into the issue. They mentioned making sure the bolt is seated fully into the hitch which will draw it down further or taking a rubber mallet to pound on the cap. Neither of those options are possible. The tapered shape of the bolt prevents it from seating any further without machining the mating surface of the hitch, using a lower profile bolt or buying a bumper cap with a deeper crown to allow clearance. 655793

Arrived when promised, top quality fit and finish, even easier to install than expected on my RAM 1500. I think it took me longer to drop and return my spare than it did to mount this hitch. I wasn't prepared for one thing -- the final bolt requires 380 lb/ft of torque and my basic torque wrench only goes to 150. Make sure you have a big torque wrench handy, I had to go searching. Overall highly impressed with this product, will get to see how well it works next week when we pick up our new camper! 639929

The trailer hitch is good, but I cannot get the bolt cover back on the truck because the trailer bolt sticks out too far. I had to therefore paint the bolt black to match the truck color and it looks pretty odd with an exposed trailer hitch bolt but I guess it'll do. I have no idea how etrailer was able to get this on all their trucks without the issue. Maybe it's a 2018-present model year issue but for the ram 1500 express models it's pretty unsightly if you don't do something to help it look better. I even had a dealership install it so I know it's installed correctly and they couldn't even get it on any more 635150

  • Brake Controller and Hitch Recommendation for 2010 Dodge Ram 1500
  • A travel trailer that's 20-24 feet in length is going to have brakes on it that will need to be activated when towing so you'll need a brake controller. For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P3 Brake Controller part # 90195. This is our best selling brake controller because of how well it works and how easy it is to setup. This is a proportional brake controller that senses the amount of braking the tow vehicle is applying and applies a proportionate amount to the trailer...

  • 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...

  • Difference Between Curt # 13333 And Curt # 13374 For 2014 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt about your 2014 Dodge Ram 1500. They said it would depend on how you are planning on using the hitch you choose. If you are planning on towing something that would require a weight distribution system when towing, you will want the part # 13374. Weight distribution is needed if your trailer weight is more than 50 percent of your truck weight, or if the rear of your truck sags when the trailer is hooked up, or you experience trailer sway. I have attached...

  • 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 V Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Ram 1500
  • The hitches we carry for the 2013 Ram 1500 are not also fits for a 2010 Ram 2500/3500. So for your 2013 Ram you would want the Draw Tite Hitch part # 41948 as it is a Class V hitch confirmed to fit.

  • Trailer Hitch and Custom Trailer Wiring for a 2008 Dodge Ram Quad Cab 1500 Big Horn
  • The 7-Way and 4-Way Replacement Connector, # 42145, is the correct harness for your 2008 Dodge Ram if you already have or had a factory 7-Way. One end mounts to the rear of the vehicle, there might even be a knock out on the bumper that can be removed. The other end plugs into the vehicle wiring. Your truck should have a plug behind the bumper, near the center. It will plug into the square connector of the harness. If the truck does not already have any connectors, you will need to start...

  • Correct Ball Mount Height for 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 With Curt Class III Receiver # 13333
  • The ball mount needed will depend on the coupler height of your trailer when it is level. The difference in height between your receiver and the trailer coupler will dictate which particular ball mount is needed. You will also want to choose the appropriately sized trailer ball and a ball mount that has a capacity greater than the weight of the trailer you are planning on towing. If you will be towing different trailers that have various heights, an adjustable ball mount might be the...

  • 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...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Ram 1500 with Bumper Ball Hole for Towing
  • Sounds like you are referring to the ball hole in the bumper of your 2017 Ram 1500 that isn't actually a hitch. So to upgrade that to a higher capacity hitch setup you'd want the Curt # 13333 which is a Class III and has capacity of 6,000 lbs trailer weight.

  • What is the Mounting Hole Spacing on Curt Trailer Hitch C13333
  • I went out to the warehouse to measure the hole spacing on Curt trailer hitch # 13333 for you. The holes are spaced 7-3/4 inches apart on center. This is a custom fit hitch designed for the following vehicles: 2004 - 2014 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Series, without factory hitch 2003 - 2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Series, without factory hitch - built After 11/1/02 2003 - 2013 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 and 3500 Series, without factory hitch 2010 - 2013 Ram 3500 Pickup, without factory hitch 2010...

  • Recommendation for a Trailer Hitch that Bolts to Bumper Support on a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500
  • You are correct, your 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 does have a bumper support at the back that attaches to each frame rail with a support in the center that rests under the step bumper so you can place a hitch ball. The Curt Trailer Hitch, # 13333, that you have referenced attaches to the bumper support and uses the ball hole as an attachment point also, so it is compatible with your truck. The hitch can be used with weight distribution. I have included a link to the installation details for...

  • Bolt Hole Spacing of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Part # 13333
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13333 uses three mounting points to install. The two rear mounting points are 7.25" apart on center and the center of the front mounting hole to the rear plate is 4.50". I have attached a photo of these dimensions for you as well. Please keep in mind that this hitch fits the following models only: 2004 - 2014 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 - without factory hitch 2003 - 2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 - without factory hitch - built After 11/1/02 2003 -...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch To Tow 2 Horse Trailer with 2004 Dodge Ram Truck
  • With the trailer load you will be carrying, using the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 13333, would put you near or slightly over the tongue weight capacity of the hitch, which is 600 lbs. If you were to use a weight distribution system when carrying your horse trailer you would be ok to use the Curt # 13333 Hitch. Tongue weight is calculated to be about 10 to 15 percent of the Gross Trailer Weight. I would recommend using the Curt Class V Trailer Hitch, part # C15409. This hitch...

  • Trouble Reinstalling Bumper Cap After Installing Curt Trailer Hitch 13333 on a Dodge Ram
  • It seems like some owners can put the cap back on and others cannot after installing Curt trailer hitch # 13333. It is possible that on your truck, and others affected, the hitch is pulled up tighter to the bumper causing the cap not to fit back on. What you can try is to run the bolt in and out a few times to see if it can seat lower in its spot. You can also try changing the order when tightening the bolts because that can affect the position of the hitch. If you have never removed...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2004 Dodge Ram Pickup with a Lower Bumper Trim Piece
  • The Curt Class III Trailer Hitch, # 13333, is designed to bolt to the round bumper support bar just behind the bumper. Once installed, the receiver of the hitch will sit directly below the step in your rear bumper. If the lower trim piece covers the underside of the rear bumper and the round bumper support (which appears to be the case according to your photo), then you could install the hitch, but you would need to cut the bumper trim piece for the hitch to fit. If you do not want...

  • 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...
