Gooseneck Ball to Fit 2014 Ram 3500 with Factory Gooseneck Hitch to Install an Andersen Ultimate


What is the total length of this ball? I have a 2014 Dodge Ram 3500 with in bed fifth wheel and I have a brand new Andersen Ulimate Fifth Wheel Connection System, however the gooseneck ball in the bed is not long enough for it to be pinned. In the photo...the ball on the left was in my 2012 Dodge Ram 3500, which fits perfectly to my Andersen. but the ball on the right is too short. The ball on the left from my 2012 Ram 3500 will not fit in the hole in the bed of my 2014 Ram 3500.

The replacement ball, part # AM3201, you referenced fits into the Andersen hitch but it won't fit the ball hole in your 2014 Ram 3500. Since you asked it measures about 8-1/2 inches in total height, 5 inches from the top pin hole to the very top, 6-1/4 inches from the center hole to the top, and 7-1/2 inches from the bottom hole to the top.

It sounds like you have the factory gooseneck package in your truck so I've linked the hitch balls we have that fit with that package. If you want to compare their measurements to your current hitch ball:

Curt # C60618 - 6-3/4 inches total height, 5-1/2 inches from pin hole to top, and 4 inches from under the lip to the top
B&W # BWGNXA2062 - 8-1/2 inches total height, 7-1/4 inches from pin hole to top, and 5-3/4 inches under the lip to top
Reese # RP30140 - 6-1/2 inches total height, 5-1/2 incehs from pin hole to top, and 4 inches from under the lip to top
