2015 Dodge Ram Pickup

I ordered this for a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 I recently acquired. Very well made! It came complete with all hardware and instructions. I had no problem following the instructions. It took longer to get ready to install the hitch than it did to install it; just about 15 minutes. I also ordered wiring kit C57186 which was perfect for my application. I'll be towing a Jay Feather hybrid with Tekonsha Prodigy RF wireless brake controller and this worked out perfectly. Thanks to Etrailer for making this so easy!

2016 Ram 1500

Product works great. Install medium difficulty for novice. Install video made it doable.


Love it... Very well made and it did not take long to install as I had the tools needed... the fish wire was so easy... Again, Loved it!!! installed so Quick!!!

2023 Ram 1500 Classic

Went on easy torqued everything down as specified looks great only problem is the hex bolt sticks up to far to put the bumper ball hole cover back on

2022 Ram 1500 Classic

Installation went smoothly. Should work for what we bought it for.

2018 Ram 1500

Built sturdy, looks great. Watched installation video, installed in about 30 minutes. Helps to have 2 people.

2015 Dodge Ram Pickup

Went on without a "hitch"!
But seriously,
the hitch went on without a problem. The first one I ordered was welded completely crooked. I was p*ssed! I took pictures and sent them off to customer service. There is no doubt about etrailer's Customer Service Team. They are second to none. My replacement hitch was on its way to me before I even had the crooked one in the mail. The hitch, bolts, nuts and those wires that allow you to pull the bolts and retainer plates through the frame, all quality parts and easily went on. They have instructions and a great video of how to install it on my 2015 Ram 1500. Thank You etrailer for a smooth and pleasant transaction.

But seriously, " />

Ive used it quite a few times. I towed one of my cars to have a new transmission installed, a rented mini excavator twice during the 2017 summer. It is definitely doing its job pulling its weight.


Good fit on the truck and wasn’t hard to install, it comes with everything you need to install as well. The paint is holding up really good no chipping or rusting, definitely would recommend this hitch receiver if it fits for your application.

2005 Dodge Ram Pickup

2005 Dodge 1500 V6. 17ft flat trailer. 10ft Dump trailer. I haul no more then 5,000 to 6,000 pounds.
So far the trailer hitch and the receiver has held up well for hauling my two trailers. It installed rather easily with the fishing wire being the only challenge. The only issues is getting the 3/4" hardware to XXX lb-ft. I broke one socket and I don't have a torque wrench that goes that high. Nor could I find a local truck mechanic who did. SO I tightened the hell out of it and hope for the best.

2015 Dodge Ram Pickup

Fast shipping. Very well built and easy to install. Had the new hitch on in less than 15 minutes on my Dodge Ram 1500 ST and it looks great.

Mitch V.


After a year and towing a boat this hitch is still like new. Not a single problem with it coming loose or showing any sign of wear. Am as happy today as I was the day I installed it.

2004 Dodge Ram Pickup

This hitch is high quality and built to last. I think start to finish it took me 20 minutes to install. I am glad I found this and got it so quickly!

2013 Dodge Ram Pickup

Awesome. . Perfect fit for my 2013 Ram..Easy to install , especially with all the hardware that's included. I had read previous reviews and noticed a 1/2 inch hex key was needed so I purchased that before the hitch arrived that way I was ready to install. From the time I opened box , dropped spare tire,install and tighten the hitch to jacking back up the spare and being tow ready in 30 min. Thanks etrailer for a great product at a great price.. I am a satisfied customer.

2012 Jeep Liberty

I received a quote from a local truck dealer to install this for $220 and stated it would take a "couple of hours!"

I watched the video on-line and decided to order the part. It arrived in a couple of days and I had it installed in 22 mintues! (4 - 6 mins were to lower/raise the spare tire!)

I used the hitch this past weekend to haul my bass boat!

Ordering a reciever hitch for my wife's Jeep Liberty now (Local dealer quote was $550)

NOTE: Make sure you have a 1/2" hex socket for the bumper bolt.

2015 Ram 1500

Shipped fast. Etrailer support was excellent, there was a concern with my order and it didn't ship on time so they refunded my extra payment for 2 day shipping and still shipped it 2 day. Installation was easy, I didn't even drop the spare all the way to get to the bolt holes through the rear cross bar. Fitment with the spare and in hitch in place is tight. The top bolt barely handled the required torque. Installation was a breeze. Can't wait to use it this weekend.


This product is amazing. Extremely well made and comes with everything you need for an easy installation. The video instructions on there web site are spot on and very simple to follow. I could not be happier with this product. Lowering the spare was the most difficult part of the install but that is Dodges fault for making their spare tire system a joke.
I give this product my highest recommendation!
The entire ordering process could not have been easy and faster. Arrived exactly as advertised I was shocked as to how well made it really is. This is a beast of a hitch. This hitch is far superior to the Mopar hitch the dealer will charge you $275.00 for or $338.00 installed. You won’t be disappointed with this hitch.


Great customer service. Fast order processing even during holiday mayhem!



The hitch receiver is working well. No problems. Was a good purchase.


After reading up on your hitch and it's installation, I was convinced I could do this myself ~ except for not being able to tighten things adequately. [I'm all of 71 yrs young.] Owner of the truck, hubs, Papa Gene at 86 yrs young, has no business groveling on the hard ground on his bad back to do the job ! As he figured [incorrectly] that the spare would have to come off from the undercarriage, he elected to have a more able, [disabled] neighbor do the job. As your instructions indicated, the job took all of 30 minutes, and no, the spare stayed in place. Hubs is ready now, to haul cedar logs to be milled for return so that he may build more furniture!

2015 Dodge Ram Pickup

Installed on my 2015 Dodge Ram 1500. I think I spent more time trying to find the 1/2 hex and lowering the spare to give me some room than I did installing the receiver. Ordered on a Sunday, received on Tuesday. Fantastic product, good price, easy installation, I would highly recommend.


Great! Easy installation and hauled my first load on it today! Feat product!

Brandon S.


It is great! Hauling is no problem using my 14ft trailer. Excellent product.


2019 RAM 1500 Classic

Very fast
service, I had my hitch in just 3 days.

Very easy install, took 15 minutes after dropping the spare tire even with hand tools and laying under it in the driveway.

Looks just as good as OEM, if not better.


Heavy duty and sturdy. Installed this on my 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock edition.

Came with all the special wires to install the back up mounting plates! So easy to install that it took me about 20 minutes!

2011 Dodge Ram Pickup

Was looking for a receiver to fit my 2011 Ram crew cab, E-Trailer had one for a decent price, with a flush under bumper model. Just as advertised, it fit perfect. Very easy to install.(15-20 mins.) Made a great choice in doing business with E-trailer. Delivery was sooner than expected, and the price was good for me. Thanks E-Trailer

2003 Dodge Ram Pickup

It was the best and easiest solution for my need, pulled my horse trailer around like nothing and you do not need to be a handle man or mechanic to do this, very easy steps.

2018 Dodge Ram Pickup

Bought this at a great price for my 18 Ram from etrailer. So simple to install. It took longer to lower my spare tire than to install this hitch.
Highly recommend.

2016 Ram 1500

Etrailer did a awesome job helping me get the right hitch for my truck and getting it to me in a really quick amount of time even after a ordering issue. Would definitely use Etrailer again if I need another hitch.

  • Trailer Hitch for 2019 Ram 1500
    If you have the 2019 Ram 1500 the only trailer hitch available that is confirmed to fit is the Curt Class IV & V Ultra Frame Receiver Hitch # C15005. If your truck is equipped with the factory hitch though it will need to be removed for this trailer hitch to install correctly. This is a heavy-duty hitch that features a 15,000 pound towing weight capacity and will provide you with a 2 inch receiver.

    For replacement mounting hardware for Curt trailer hitch # 13333 you will need replacement hardware kit # RHK. On the RHK page you will see a box to enter the hitch number and a box to choose the manufacturer of the hitch. Enter the information, click add to cart, and our team will assemble the correct kit. I have also linked the installation instructions and a video showing installation on a 2013 Ram.

  • What Size Hex Bit do I Need for 3/4 Flat Head Socket Bolt?
    When installing the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13333 you will use a half inch hex bit or allen. Generally in this case we use an impact type 1/2" hex bit on a large torque wrench. This tend to let us get tot he high torque spec of 320 ft./lbs. required. A 3/4" or 19mm is also required as a heads up.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver Upgrade for 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 Hemi
    The factory receiver hitch is rated for 5,000 lbs towing and 500 lb tongue weight. A weight distribution system is recommended for trailers over 5,000 lbs according to the manufacturer's towing guide. For the tongue weight you desire, you can use a Class III hitch or heigher with a weight distribution system. My suggestion is to go with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class IV - 2" # 14374 or the Class V options of # C15572 or # 41948. These all have a 2 inch receiver openings and...

  • Can Curt Trailer Hitch # 13333 be Welded and Bolt On a 2005 Dodge Ram
    If you were to weld Curt trailer hitch # 13333 and bolt in on it would not make it any stronger or allow the hitch or truck to tow more weight. Heating the metal could actually have some adverse effects such as fatiguing the metal and make the capacity lower than just bolting it on. Deviating from the instructions would also void the hitch warranty. I have included a link to the installation instructions and a link to a video showing a typical installation for you to view.

    I called the supplier (Curt) and they said the Curt Trailer Hitch, # 13333, will fit your 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab Sport with the factory dual mufflers if it does not have the factory installed hitch. The Curt hitch installs where the factory hitch would be located, so it does not work with the factory hitch.

  • Frame or Cross-Member Mount Hitch Recommended for 2014 Ram 1500 w/ 3.6L V6 Engine
    Whether you use a frame mounted hitch assembly like # 14374 or the receiver only type hitch that mounts to the factory crossmember like # 13333 will depend on the capacity you're looking for. A frame mounted hitch such as the Curt Class IV hitch # 14374 offers a 10000 lb towing/1000 lb tongue weight capacity which is greater than the capacity of your truck as it's equipped, so you'd be paying for extra capacity that you couldn't use.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch To Tow 2 Horse Trailer with 2004 Dodge Ram Truck
    With the trailer load you will be carrying, using the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 13333, would put you near or slightly over the tongue weight capacity of the hitch, which is 600 lbs. If you were to use a weight distribution system when carrying your horse trailer you would be ok to use the Curt # 13333 Hitch. Tongue weight is calculated to be about 10 to 15 percent of the Gross Trailer Weight. I would recommend using the Curt Class V Trailer Hitch, part # C15409. This hitch will...

  • Will a Trailer Hitch from a 2003 Toyota Tundra Fit a 2011 Dodge Ram 1500
    No, the trailer hitches that fit a 2003 Toyota Tundra are fundamentally different than those for the 2011 Dodge Ram 1500. I have included a link to the hitches that fit the 2011 Ram 1500. The most popular is Curt hitch # 13333. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900.

  • How to Tell if Curt Hitch Receiver Will Install on a 2023 Ram 1500 Classic
    Hey Sal, thanks for reaching out! The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13333 will only fit if your 2023 Ram 1500 Classic doesn't have a trailer hitch receiver already installed. Since you said yours comes with the factory bumper hitch this won't be compatible unless you're able to remove that hitch. I'm attaching a video installation of this on a 2019 Ram 1500 Classic that you can use to compare what you have to what this truck was installed with when we installed the Curt hitch on it.

  • Correct Curt Trailer Hitch for a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500
    Yes, both the Curt trailer hitches you will fit your 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 regardless of the bed size. The determining factor has more to do with the date that your truck was built: - Curt Hitch # 13326 (models built before 11/01/02) - Curt Hitch # 13333 (models built after 11/01/02)

    Yes, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13333 is a confirmed fit for a 2021 Ram 1500 Classic (All Cab Style). It features a simple bolt-on install. The instructions say to return the cap to the owner as it will not be reinstalled. That said, it looks like we were able to snap the cap back into place once the hitch was installed. I only saw one example of the cap not fitting back over the bolt. That said, if the bolt is torqued to spec it should be able to be reinstalled.

  • Trailer Hitch, Ball Mount, and 50 mm Hitch Ball Recommendation for a 2003 Dodge Ram
    In order to use the hitch ball part # 63912 in the ball mount part # D-4 you will need to use a hitch ball bushing part # C21100 since the shank of the hitch ball is 3/4 inch in diameter and the hole of the ball mount is 1 inch. The ball mount will fit the hitch part # 13333 as-is though. For a hitch pin you would want part # PC3 or for a locking hitch pin # e98880.

  • Can the Curt Trailer Hitch Part # 13333 Be Used for a 3,500 Lb Boat on a 2018 Ram 1500 Express

You will not need to use a trailer hitch that attaches directly to the frame like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13374.
