Will Gooseneck Hitches Fit a 2016 Ram 2500 with Ram Boxes


Will a gooseneck hitch work on a 2016 ram 2500 short bed with ram boxes?

Expert Reply:

If your 2016 Ram 2500 with the Ram Box has coil springs, I recommend the B&W # BWGNRK1384 gooseneck hitch for your 6 foot bed with Ram Boxes on the side.

This gooseneck hitch will have a 7,500 TW and a 30,000lb GTW. There will be no drilling to install the frame brackets of this installation kit.

If you don't have coil spring then I recommend the Curt # C60614 gooseneck hitch, because it has the same towing capacities as the B&W gooseneck hitch.

I have linked the above mentioned products to this page as well as installation videos of these goosenecks being installed on a 2014 Ram.

The Ram Boxes are only really an issue for fifth wheel towing as the make the truck bed rails too narrow for a pin box to pivot around without hitting them. For gooseneck you would be just fine.
