Is Curt C15572 Class V Hitch for 2017 Ram 1500 Compatible with Aftermarket Bumper


Will the #C15572 hitch conflict with any aftermarket rear bumpers? I am in the process of shopping for a rear bumper and also want to upgrade to this hitch on my 2017 Ram 1500. I dont want to find out after purchasing both that there is a conflict.


Expert Reply:

The custom fit trailer hitches for the 2017 Ram 1500 such as the Curt # C15572 are designed to work with the OEM bumpers only, I have no way of knowing whether it would be compatible with a given aftermarket bumper, as it's meant to bolt to the existing bumper beam on the vehicle.

If I were in your shoes, I'd either stick with the factory bumper, or look for a compatible aftermarket bumper that has a hitch receiver integrated into it.

I've linked you to a video showing the # C15572 hitch being installed onto a 2017 Ram 1500 like yours. The video will give you a good idea of how everything fits together.
