It sounds like the trailer hitch that came on your 2015 Ram 2500 Diesel has a 2-1/2 inch hitch receiver. If this is the case, I can certainly help you find a ball mount that will work well for you!

There are a couple of options to get a ball mount that will work for you. One option is a reducer sleeve, such as the Curt Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve # C45405. This will allow you to use your 2 inch ball mount or other 2 inch hitch accessories inside your Ram's 2-1/2 inch receiver. All of our 2-1/2 inch to 2 inch reducer sleeves can be found at the attached link.

The other option is to replace your ball mount with one that is designed to fit a 2-1/2 inch hitch. For example, if you need a ball mount with a 5 inch drop, the Reese Ball Mount # RP45323 is a great option as it is designed for 2-1/2 inch receivers and will offer either a 5 inch drop or a 3-1/2 inch rise. All of our 2-1/2 inch ball mount options are listed on the attached link.

To help you determine what rise/drop you need for a ball mount, I've attached a help article for you that outlines how to measure your truck and trailer for a ball mount.

If you meant that your ball mount is too small in a different way, feel free to let me know and I will be happy to make a better recommendation for you.
