Do Front Tow Hooks Need to be Removed to Install Front Mount Trailer Hitch on 2018 Ram 1500


Will this hitch require me to remove my factory tow hooks or can they stay mounted


Expert Reply:

While you should be able to keep the factory tow hooks of your 2018 Ram 1500 when installing the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65062 there is no way to know for certain until the install.

The linked installation manual requires you to loosen the bolts that attach your Ram's tow hooks to your bumper, slide the hitch in between the frame and the tow hook, and then reinstall the tow hooks with the hitch in place. That said, there is also a note which says there is a known variance in tow hook sizes which may not necessarily allow the tow hooks to be reinstalled.

I have added a link to a video of this hitch being installed in a Ram for you to take a look at as well.
