Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" - 13333

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (751 Customer Reviews)

This fully welded trailer hitch receiver bolts onto your vehicle's frame with no welding required. Powder coated steel is sturdy and corrosion resistant.


The hitch receiver arrived, I read the instructions and 30 minutes later I was torquing down the bolts. All in all, it was very simple and required no special tools. I would recommend this hitch to anyone, who wants an inexpensive and relatively easy to mount trailer hitch.

The receiver has been great. After installing and getting an adapter for my small trailer, 4x6ft, everything has been fine. My son has an over size trailer, 8x20, and I have no problem connecting and hauling it around. Great product, good price.

2022 Ram 1500 Classic

excellent hitch for the class 3 bumbper. I had it installed in 15 minutes. Did not have to drop the spare tire. once I fed the bolt and plate through into place, I used a feeler gauge to hold bolt in place then thread nut on. some have said the bumper socket bolt sits too high to place plastic cover back on, this is only because the bolt wasn't tightened down enough to seat into the welded nut. snug it up tight and it all goes together very well. Thumbs up eTRAILER!!!

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.

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.


Easy installation, really sturdy. Good hitch!


Fantastic! Speedy delivery, parts fit exactly as intended, and great price


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

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!

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.

2015 Dodge Ram Pickup

Great product and easy to install it took me and my son about 15 mins to install this on my Dodge Ram 1500. Looks great and can't wait to hook the boat up and try this out. I have enclosed some pictures.

2013 Ram 1500

Exactly what I needed and the timely delivery was amazing. I highly recemend this company!

2015 Ram 1500

It was easy to install and high quality. My bumper cap did not fit back on was the only issue.


Great quality. Easy installation with the right tools.


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.

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.

Dodge Ram Pickup

Great item for Ram 1500 classic with 6 cylinder. I tow about 3,500 lbs. very easy to install.


Easy install, very well made.

2017 Ram 1500

Unbelievably easy to install (took me less than 15 minutes). Great quality product for a great price.

This hitch has been great. In the past year, I have moved out of an apartment and into a house. I have used this hitch constantly to pull trailers full of furniture, snowmobiles, pop up campers, lawn equipment... you name it! The hitch is still sturdy and gives me piece of mind while pulling a trailer.
David B - 04/10/2018

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


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!

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.

  • Will a Trailer Hitch from a 2010 Ram 2500 Fit on a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500
    As long as your 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 was built after November 1, 2002, you can use a trailer hitch from a 2010 Ram 2500. If your truck was built before November 1, 2002, you will need to install a trailer hitch that was designed specifically for that truck. I have attached a link to all of the trailer hitches that will fit your truck if it was built before November 1, 2002 for you to check out. I have also attached a link to all of the hitches that fit both trucks if your truck was built...

  • Which Trailer Hitches are Manufactured in the USA
    It would depend on which hitch manufacturer you're asking about. Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite Hitches are manufactured in Mexico by Cequent Performance products. They've been around a long time, they make a quality product and they do an excellent job of standing behind their products. Curt Manufacturing builds all their hitches in the USA. B&W and TorkLift also manufacture American-Made hitches, but their applications are primarily for full-sized trucks. Ball mounts and other hitch mounted...

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch, # 13333, Fit 2010 Dodge Ram Crew Cab Sport With Factory Dual Mufflers
    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.

  • How Does Curt Trailer Hitch # 13333 Attach to a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab
    The Curt Trailer Hitch, # 13333, for your 2003 Dodge Ram 1500, bolts to the bumper support arm behind the bumper. It requires the removal of the trailer ball hole cap in the center of the bumper. I have included a link to the installation instructions for this hitch that shows pictures and explains the installation steps in detail. Since the bumper and support arm are attached to the frame, the capacity could very well be 500/5,000. The Curt Trailer Hitch attaches in much the same way...

  • Can the Factory Hitch of a 2012 Dodge Ram be Removed and Install a Curt Trailer Hitch
    I spoke to my contact at Curt and he informed me that if you were to remove the factory hitch of your 2012 Dodge Ram you could install a Curt Trailer Hitch # 13333 but you would have to leave the bumper beam installed on your truck though to complete the installation. As far as I know the factory hitch of your vehicle is welded on, this might make removal of it more work than its worth, but if you retain the factory bumper beam you would still be able to install the # 13333.

  • Correct Ball Mount Height for 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 With Curt Class III Receiver # 13333
    The ball mount needed will depend on the coupler height of your trailer when it is level. The difference in height between your receiver and the trailer coupler will dictate which particular ball mount is needed. You will also want to choose the appropriately sized trailer ball and a ball mount that has a capacity greater than the weight of the trailer you are planning on towing. If you will be towing different trailers that have various heights, an adjustable ball mount might be the best...

  • Trouble Reinstalling Bumper Cap After Installing Curt Trailer Hitch 13333 on a Dodge Ram
    It seems like some owners can put the cap back on and others cannot after installing Curt trailer hitch # 13333. It is possible that on your truck, and others affected, the hitch is pulled up tighter to the bumper causing the cap not to fit back on. What you can try is to run the bolt in and out a few times to see if it can seat lower in its spot. You can also try changing the order when tightening the bolts because that can affect the position of the hitch. If you have never removed...

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch 13333 Fit a 2018 Ram 1500?
    Yes it will! I can confirm for you that the Curt Trailer Hitch # 13333 WILL fit a 2018 Ram 1500 so long as your truck does not have a factory hitch. I have also added a photo for you showing how this hitch looks when installed on an '18 Ram. It's easy to see how this might be confusing but technically there is no such thing as a 2018 Dodge Ram; in 2010 Ram trucks became its own brand, separate from Dodge.

    I certainly can understand your concern for the the top bolt of the Curt hitch part # 13333 being exposed to weather and causing rust potentially. But due to how many of these we have sold and us not getting any feedback that the bolt ended up getting rusted I would agree with Curt and say it's totally fine.
