The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65063 referenced in your question is a great option and is confirmed to fit your 2013 Dodge Ram 2500. I have included the installation details for you to review.

Anytime you place something in front of the grille on your Ram truck, such as a spare tire when using a front mounted spare tire carrier like the Draw-Tite # 6715, it is going to have some kind of effect on the airflow and vehicle cooling system. However, there really should not be enough of a negative effect to cause issue unless you are also placing additional strain on the vehicle like heavy-duty towing or racing.

I have attached video demonstrations on these products mentioned for you to take a look at.
