Good fit. I made install harder. Woulda been easy. Didn’t want to see old factory hitch but didn’t one the curt that stuck down further than stock. Had to match frame paint.



by:

From customer service, to ordering, to shipment and notification! Etrailer staff and their products are topnotch! I can't thank them enough for their service and support! The Class V hitch from Curt was recently received ahead of the original scheduled delivery date! I'm excited to get it installed!

HEAVY DUTY! Straight forward install. I cut stock mount off to put this on. Ends up sitting a little lower than OEM receiver tube.

E-Trailer was a pleasure to work with. The item was as advertised and they kept me in the loop when the shipping was delayed. I will definitely recommend then to my friends and coworkers. I work at a Ford Dealership in Sales and have already started pushing this company. Thanks, Clif

As you can see from the pictures I had a previous hitch on my truck. I didn't want to just add one below the factory one so I opted for the one designed for a truck without the factory hitch. lesson learned........you don't just remove the existing factory hitch because this one uses some bolts and mounting points from the crossmember. Short answer is just torch off the bottom hitch portion and bolt on the new one. Clif

Hitch install was easy. Receiver sits lower then a stock hitch but not to bad.

Fast and easy install. Great customer service

The installation was a little harder than expected. The original hitch had to be cut so the new hitch would fit properly. Once we removed the old hitch not the cross member the new hitch bolted up perfectly. Thanks

You can take this measurement down from where the hitch attaches to the frame on your Ram to see exactly where the bottom of the receiver will sit.

    If the ranch hand bumper is the same thing as a cowboy bumper or deep drop bumper then none of the hitches for the 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 are confirmed to fit because they are not tested on truck models with alternate bumpers. You would have to put the old bumper back on. If the factory hitch is the one welded to the frame then you would need # C15809 if you did install the factory bumper. This hitch fits below the factory hitch. I have linked instructions and a video showing installation...

    The OEM hitch on your Ram truck is welded to a cross member located behind the rear bumper. The cross member is an integral part of the vehicle structure and should not be removed, according to Curt. There are other hitches available that would install below the OEM hitch, as long as the truck has the OEM bumper. The # C15704 you mentioned will not fit in place of or with the factory hitch, but you can use the Curt # C15409. This hitch will fit below the factory hitch and has a 2 inch...

  • Curt Class V Trailer Hitch for a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 with Factory Trailer Hitch
    The factory trailer hitches on the 2006 Dodge Ram 2500s are welded on. You can add a Class V Curt hitch, # C15409 for a 2 inch receiver or # C15809 for a 2-1/2 inch receiver, and either will install beneath the factory hitch. I have linked videos showing example installations of these hitches for you. Trailer hitch # C15704 will not work because it was designed for truck models that do not have the factory hitch.

  • Will Reese Titan Hitch Box Extension Fit in a CURT Class V Trailer Hitch
    The Titan Hitch Box Extension and Reducer, # RP45292, will fit in the CURT Class V Trailer Hitch, # C15704. The extension was designed for 2-1/2 inch x 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receivers. The CURT hitch has a 2-1/2 inch square receiver. To be certain, I went out the warehouse and pulled both parts and did a quick fit test. The extension slid right into the receiver with no problems. I have included a link to the installation instructions for the hitch for you to view.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch to Replace Factory Hitch on 2007 Dodge Ram 3500
    The best Class V trailer hitch available for your 2007 Ram 3500 is the Draw-Tite # DT45509, This is the only option available for your truck that's designed to fit right under the bumper only when the factory hitch is removed, meaning it will sit just below the rear bumper to maintain ground clearance and a factory appearance. I have attached a couple customer submitted images so you can get a better idea of this. The only drawback of this particular model is that it does require a more...

  • Can The Reese Hitch Box Extension And Reducer Fit A Ford 2 1/2 Hitch Receiver
    I do have a great solution for you here but the Reese # RP45292 is designed specifically for use with their Titan 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" trailer hitch receivers only. While it may fit, any issues would void the warranty if not used with their hitches so we would not recommend it. For that reason an alternative like the Curt # C45048 is a better solution. Included is a video resource with additional information on the Curt.

  • Adapter Sleeve to Turn 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver to 2 Inch Receiver
    You will simply need an adapter to sleeve to use 2" ball mounts or accessories in a 2-1/2" receiver like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15704. The adapter I recommend that will work perfectly is the Curt Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve - 2-1/2" to 2" # C45405. You just need to slide it into the 2-1/2" receiver of hitch # C15704 and you'll be able to utilize any 2" ball mount or accessory. Keep in mind you will still want to use a long hitch receiver lock for a 2-1/2" hitch such as...

The C15704 that you referenced has a little bit of a gap, and the C15809 looks to sit a little lower..

    The problem with the Ford 2-1/2 inch hitches has apparently been resolved and affects older models. We have not heard of there being an issue on the 2016 Ford F-350 or even a few years earlier. There are actually 2 Titan hitch extenders. One is # RP45292 which can be 24 to 34 inches long. The other is # RP45018 which can be 41 to 48 inches long. The different extensions and different lengths within each have different capacities and they are specified on the product pages.

  • Best Trailer Hitch that Will Fit Under Factory Hitch on a 2007 Dodge Ram 3500
    The issue with the factory hitch on a 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 is that the hitch is actually welded to a sort of u-shaped support piece of steel. So because of this design the factory hitch cannot be removed. You will need a version that fits beneath the factory hitch such as # C15809. I have linked a video to the right showing how this hitch installs. If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # EBMK25318.
