Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability. This unique powder coating gives etrailer hitches a carbide-like appearance and a rugged look that sets them apart from traditional glossy hitches. In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

Good quality, very well built. Installed on my 2018 ram. Took a total of 15 minutes max to install. Would recommend this hitch to anyone. Dennis 588617

Very easy to install, make sure you see the installation video. I recommend removing spare tire. Video says remove if you want but not necessary. It is necessary to get socket and wrench in. Other than that its a 20 minute project. Very happy with the quality of the hitch. Looks great too. 727406

It installed so easy. The way you fish the bolts threw the factory trailer hitch is magic. Was skeptical if it would work first time I used system on Mazda this time on Dodge pickup piece of cake!!! Thank you great product. 695750

Dodge

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

  • Difference Between Curt Trailer Hitch # 13333 and etrailer.com # e98852
    Have no fear. The Curt Class III Trailer Hitch # 13333 that you ordered is a perfect fit and will work great on your 2017 Ram 1500. It will line right up to existing holes in the truck's frame rails for a simple no-drill installation. There are quite a few hitches available that are designed to fit your truck and the etrailer.com Class III Hitch # e98852 that you also mentioned just happens to fall within this group. This is pretty much identical to the hitch you purchased but with...

  • Can the Bumper Mount Trailer Hitch e98852 for a 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Be Used For Heavy Towing
    I do have an option for you but in order to tow a trailer that size with your 2019 Ram 1500 Classic you are going to need a frame mount trailer hitch, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 14374 is what I recommend as it offers simple bolt-on installation. The etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98852 would not be sufficient. I will say that if you are going to be towing that heavy of a trailer then you will need to install either a set of suspension enhancements like the Timbren...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and 4/7- Way Wiring Harness for a 2015 Ram 1500

Then for the wiring, I recommend the 7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket w/ Mounting Bracket part # HM40975-11933 which should be just what you need. It has both 4 and 7-way connection points.

    Putting a Class III or Class IV trailer hitch on your 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 really depends on how you are going to use it. The Class III etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98852 or Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13333 is the best option for light towing. They are very simple to put on with zero drilling required and have a 6,000 lb towing and 600 lb tongue weight capacity, which is more than enough for most Ram 1500 models (please refer to your owner's manual for your specific capacity...

    Yes, as long as it did not come with a factory hitch, the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98852 is confirmed to fit all models of the 2019 Ram Classic, including ones with the Tradesman package, like yours. To complete your tow package, I recommend: Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package # C55774 Curt Towing Starter Kit for 2" Hitches - 2" Ball - 3/4" Rise, 2" Drop - 7.5K # C45534

  • Trailer Hitch for 2017 Ram 1500 Express with Enough Towing Capacity
    Since your 2017 Ram 1500 Express has a towing capacity of 4,470 lbs since it's a V6 engine model the trailer hitch part # e98852 would easily give you enough capacity to match what your truck is capable of as it has a higher towing capacity than that. This hitch is also super easy to install and is priced great too. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

    The etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98852 is a fit for your 2019 Ram 1500 Classic, so you do have the right hitch for your truck. It is rare that the bumper cap can't go back on easily, but the space between the cap and your bumper is definitely evident in the photo you sent. What has worked for some people is to try re-installing and changing the order in which you torque down the bolts to get the hitch to seat a little bit differently and allow the cap to sit down.

  • Cost Effective Trailer Hitch for a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500
    The rear bumper support tube is not present on a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 therefore you cannot use the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E98852 or one similar for that matter. Instead, you will need to use a frame mount trailer hitch like the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75101. The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver installs using pre-drilled holes in the frame. It comes with all of the hardware required to do so. I have attached a copy of the installation...

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.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Ram 1500 Classic for Small Utility Trailer Towing
    For a light duty towing application for your 2019 Ram 1500 Classic without the towing package the hitch you'd want is the etrailer.com part # E98852 because it's an easy install, has more capacity than you'd need at 6,000 lbs trailer weight, and has a great price. 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.

If you are without a trailer hitch currently the etrailer hitch part # E98852 is a confirmed fit and would work great. It installs very easily by attaching to the bumper beam. The truck would have a factory 7-way so installing a brake controller would be pretty easy. A brake controller is designed to activate the brakes of the trailer so that your towing setup can safely come to a stop. The...

  • What Size Bumper Bolt for Trailer Hitch on a 2015 Ram 1500
    I'm not sure what trailer hitch you have installed on your 2015 Ram 1500 but the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch # e98852 uses a 3/4-10 x 3.25 bolt while the Draw-Tite version # 75662 uses a 3/4-10 x 3.5 bolt. This means that you need a 3/4-10 with at least a 3.25 length. I have attached installation videos for both that you can check out. If you have a different trailer hitch that we carry just let me know and I can help you find out what exact bolt you need.

There are a few differences. The biggest difference is that the etrailer # e98852 hitch itself is manufactured in the USA, while the the Draw-Tite model is manufactured in Mexico.

These are the two most cost effective options we have for you. They are designed specifically for a 2005 Ford F-150. Unfortunately, there would be absolutely no way to use a trailer hitch for another truck such as the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98852 because trailer hitches are designed for exact vehicle...
