Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2013 Dodge Ram - Curt

Today on our 2013 Dodge Ram Pickup we'll be installing the Curt hitch, part number 14374. This is what our hitch will look like once it's installed. Next we'll go ahead and take a couple of measurements to assist you with selecting accessories for your new hitch such as a ball mount, bike rack, or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most edge of the bumper is 3 inches. To the top of the inside of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 19 inches. Now let's go ahead with installation.

Note we've already gone ahead and lowered and removed the spare tire. Now we're ready to go ahead and install the hitch. Starting here on the drivers side frame rail we'll need to remove the second manufacturers bolt from the very end of the frame rail nearest the bumper. We'll hang onto this bolt as we'll be reusing it to install the hitch. Next our forward attachment point on the frame rail will bet eh open hole here where we'll feed hardware into the frame.

For our forward attachment point on the frame we'll be using the half inch carriage bolt, smaller half inch spacer block, along with the half inch pull wire we'll use to pull it into position, and then a half inch flange nut to secure the hitch. Our center attachment points we'll be using a cross tube that runs directly under the bumper. These predrilled holes here will get hardware pulled in through the end of the tube and into position to secure the hitch. For the cross tube hardware we'll be using again the half inch carriage bolt, the larger half inch spacer block, and then the pull wire and half inch flange nut. Now we'll go ahead and put the hardware in this frame for our forward attachment point.

Using the bolt leader we'll slide the block onto the bolt leader and then thread on the bolt. We'll feed the bolt into the frame, followed by the block, and then pull them back into position. Once in position we can go ahead and remove the bolt leader. Now Ill go ahead and repeat the same process on the passenger side. Next it's a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch while you install the fasteners.

Put the hitch up into position installing the manufacturers bolt back into the threaded well nut and then the half inch flange nut for our forward attachment point. We'll install each one of these fasteners finger tight to hold the hitch into position. Now we'll go ahead and take the bolt leader, feed it through the hitch attachment point, into the cross tube, and out the end of the cross tube. Then we'll go ahead and slide on the block and feed it into the cross tube, followed by threading on the carriage bolt. Then we'll pull the carriage bolt and block into position, down to the center of the cross tube and out through the hitch. We'll go ahead and hold onto the carriage bolt, remove the bolt leader, and thread on the half inch flange nut. Note, it's a good idea to hold on to the carriage bolt as it can possibly fall back into the cross tube once you remove the bolt leader. Quick tech tip, you can also use a flat bladed screwdriver to assist in holding the carriage bolt by taking the flat blade and pushing down onto the carriage bolt pinching it in position. Now with those fasteners all finger tight we can go ahead and tighten down all fasteners. Next we'll torque to specifications as indicated in instructions. That will complete the install of our Curt hitch, part number 14374, on our 2013 Dodge Ram Pickup.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Outstanding customer service!! They were very courteous and helpful with my order over the phone. Handling/Shipping time was fast as well and order arrived within a couple of days. The Curt Class IV hitch for my son-in-law's 2014 Ram ST Crew Cab was just what it needed. It was easy to install with the supplied hardware and instructions. 111503

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

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

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

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

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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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 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.

  • 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...

  • 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,...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 without Factory Hitch

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2011 Ram Pickup with Factory Bumper Hitch

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...
