Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability.

Video Transcript for etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Installation - 2014 Dodge Ram Pickup

Ryan: Hey, everybody. Ryan here at etrailer.com. Today on our 2014 Ram 1500 we're going to be taking a look at and showing how to install the etrailer.com Class 3 2" trailer hitch receiver. One thing I noticed right off the bat was that our hitch is going to give us some pretty good clearance. What I mean by that is it's not going to sit too far out past our bumper or sit way back in. That's going to make it really useful, especially for truck owners who disconnect and connect their accessories often.One of the things that sets this hitch apart from some of the others is the finish.

It's going to have a carbide matte black powder coat finish, which is not only going to look good, but it's going to stay in good shape, help resist rust or corrosion, and it's also going to be scratch-resistant. Since this is a Class 3 hitch, it's going to have that 2" by 2" receiver tube opening, which is going to work well with pretty much just about any accessory available. It's just going to have the standard 5/8 size pin hole, but keep in mind it does not come included with the pin and clip. But if you need one, you can find it here at etrailer. It has plate-style safety chain openings, which do sit quite a ways back from our pin hole and are going to be decent size and allow us to use just about any size hook that we might have without interfering with our pin and clip.Now as far as the weight capacities go, our hitch is going to have a 600 pound maximum gross tongue weight rating.

That's the going to be more than enough to carry just about any cargo carrier or bike rack that you would want to. Now as far as a maximum gross trailer weight rating goes, that's going to be 6,000 pounds. It's going to be the amount of weight pulling on the hitch. That'll be the weight of your trailer plus anything you might have on it. Now our hitch can be used with a weight distribution system, which does increase the overall weight capacities, which is a separate component, but if you're using one of them, the maximum gross tongue weight rating will increase to 1,000 pounds, and the maximum gross trailer weight rating will increase to 10,000 pounds.

Now it is always a good idea to check with your truck's owner's manual to make sure you can pull that much weight.Now one thing I would recommend, especially if you plan on doing some towing, is to pick up some trailer wiring. That way, the lights on your trailer will mirror the lights on the back of your truck and you'll be safe and legal.I'm going to give you a couple of measurements. You're going to use these to help figure out which hitch-mounted accessories to get. From the ground to the top inside edge of the receiver tube opening is going to be about 20". You're going to use that to figure out if you need to get a ball mount with either a drop or a rise.

From the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the rear bumper is going to be about 2". You're going to use that to figure out if any folding accessories you might have can be stored in the upright position without contacting the bumper.Now this is a very simple hitch to get installed, and very few of our customers had any issues whatsoever. Speaking of which, let's go ahead and put it on together now. To begin our installation, I went ahead and removed our spare tire. Now usually we would have a little plastic cover right here in the center of the bumper that we would need to take off. However, this one has been removed already. But to get these off, all you would do is take a flat head screwdriver and just get underneath it, and they simply just pop right out. Now what we'll do is take our hitch. We're going to put this on the beam. We'll take the lip of it and go behind the bumper, put it in place. We can hold it up and then come to the topside to drop a bolt down through it. We can take our large bolt and we're going to drop that down through the opening underneath that cap that we removed on the topside of the bumper. Line it up with the hitch and get it started so the hitch will hold itself into place.Now we can put our hardware in place here on the backside. To do that we're going to use the fish wire technique. We'll take the coiled end of our fish wire, push it through the hitch. We're going to run that coiled end down to the outside of our tube. Sometimes it does help at the very end of our fish wire to put a kink in it. That'll help prevent it from accidentally getting pulled in. Now once the coiled end is exposed, what we're going to do is take a spacer block, put that over the end of it. Then we're going to take a carriage bolt and thread that onto the fish wire. Now we're able to feed all that hardware inside. You can work it around and get it to pull through the hitch. Now I'm going to do that exact same thing over on this side.Now what we can do is we can pull on our fish wire to get the bolt all the way out. I like to take a flat head screwdriver and just push that bolt tight. Then we can remove that fish wire, take a flange nut, and get it started. Now with all of our hardware in place and hand tight, we can snug it all down. Now I do want to point out, for this bolt up here you will need a 1/2" size Allen key. For the nuts here on the back of the hitch, we'll tighten them down using a 3/4" socket. Now using a torque wrench, we can torque our hardware down to the amount specified in the instructions. With everything torqued, I went ahead and reinstalled my spare tire, but you can rest assured it does fit back up here perfectly. That'll finish up our look at and our installation of the etrailer.com trailer hitch receiver on our 2014 Ram 1500.

Easy to install wish they would of supplied a Allen key had to go buy one 533605



- e98852
by:

Easy installation. The only part that isn’t great is the need for a 1/2 inch Allen socket and a giant torque wrench. The cover isn’t fitting great back over the Allen head but that’s just cosmetic. 533734

Solid product, excellent price This hitch costs much less than the factory Dodge hitch yet it has just as good a build quality and for all intents and purposes, is an identical product.Installation is very straightforward and the directions are clear but there are two small things you should be aware of. 1) You'll need a 1/2" hex bit which you can find at your local Kragen/Napa/etc for a few dollars, and 2) You are instructed to torque to 200lbs. A torque wrench i that range is a really expensive specialty item, so what you can otherwise do is get it on real tight with a breaker bar, then go another 1/8th turn, which should be pretty close.All in all, great product and great service from eTrailer. 530245

This hitch was for my son's new "used" Dodge Ram 4 wheel drive pickup purchased. along with a drop draw bar and ball. The online instructions even showed how to select the correct draw bar drop for the specific hitch/trunk combination based on the trailer coupler height from the ground with the trailer level.The installation of the 2 bolts and plates inside the bumper support tube using the wires supplied along with on line video and a little care went very well.The only issue was tightening the 13 MM recess 13 MM hex bolt through the top of the bumper into the hitch. I had to borrow a 3/4" drive socket from a garage. 533677

  • Hitch and Cargo Carrier Recommendation for 2017 Dodge Ram with Bumper Ballmount
  • I took a look at your photos and the bumper does have a ball mount in it on your 2017 Dodge Ram. The bumper was designed to accept a ball but cargo carriers do require a hitch receiver opening to install. The only way to use a cargo carrier on the truck is to install a hitch. I recommend the etrailer.com hitch part # E98852 because it uses the ball mount in the bumper to install. The hardware comes with a large bolt to install through the ball mount cylinder hole and into the top of...

  • Trailer Hitch, Wiring, and Brake Controller for 2019 Ram 1500 Classic and 5,000 Pound Trailer
  • Congratulations on the new ride! We have several trailer hitches for your 2019 Ram 1500 Classic. Based on a trailer weight of 5,000 pounds gross I recommend etrailer hitch # e98852. This hitch is rated for 6,000 pounds gross trailer weight (10,000 when used with weight distribution) so it has more than enough capacity for your trailer. If your truck did not come with a factory trailer connector you can use # 119179KIT to add a 4-Way flat to the rear of the truck. And to add a 7-Way connector...

If you do not have a 1500 Classic and instead have the new style of 2019 Ram 1500 then the trailer hitch that will fit is the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 41913 which is a Class V hitch with a 2 inch receiver.

Since your truck has a factory 7-way and a small utility trailer would require a 4-way the wiring kit you'd want is the part # C55384 which installs in line with the 7-way and gives you a 4-way.
