Specially designed for heavy-duty towing, this fully welded trailer hitch receiver bolts onto your vehicle's frame with no welding required. Powder coated steel is sturdy and corrosion resistant.


Wow, now this is a heavy duty Hitch Receiver, I was very doubtful that I would be able to install this hitch by myself but with the right equipment on hand, a floor Jack and some large Jack stands I was able to lift it into place, secure all the bolts and tighten everything up. This all took me a little over an hour to complete but I did it. I’ve already hooked my 26’ Cargo Mate 12K GVW trailer to it. One thing I was a bit disappointed with was that the 10” drop I purchased earlier from etrailer is now too low and close to the ground, if I invert it, the ball will be too high. My air bags may give me the necessary clearance from the bottom of the drop to the ground so I may be ok for my 2,200 mile drive south. Great product thus far, additional review post drive. One other item that puzzled me was the 2 extra shims which I had to assume went between the forward receiver and the frame due to the space that was left from a weld point on the frame

This fits a variety of different Rams so #8 on the diagram in the instructions says to use as needed.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 07/19/2022


The only issue with the receiver hitch is that it dropped approximately 3" lower than the original hitch. Obviously a ground clearance and trailer hitch adjustment situation.


Build quality is good, install was basic. Look is awful, most of these I have installed replace the factory hitch and install tight to the bumper, this one hangs below the factory hitch and looks out of place on the pickup. I considered sending it back but shipping would have been half what I paid for the hitch,

Hitch is working as it should, and I tow heavy daily. Hitch still looks terrible though. I get questions all the time asking whats wrong with it of if its broken. Operates perfect, just doesnt look that good.
Cassidy - 06/19/2022


Packing was poor at best. As seen in the attached pictures, no box or padding of any kind, every surface of the new hitch has scratches and dings, making more work for me to protect the surfaces from rust….would have been fine buying a used and abused item. I see the use of fiber tape, I am sure that will take even More work to remove the adhesive. Not a happy camper- have not even removed what is left of the packaging to see more damage. Another review coming for fit, installation and finish! Can’t wait for another disappointment!

I apologize for the state your hitch arrived in. I will be sending this to customer service. To prevent premature rust, I would cover the hitch in anti-corrosive paint.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 06/15/2022


The quality of the hitch is outstanding. The installation instructions are a little lacking in my opinion. But the hitch is top notch.

I was worried about the ground clearance on my Dodge as I live a considerable distance off pavement. I am surprised that I have been able to pull loads up to 15K and havent bottomed out even going through creeks and washes. I am sure the time will come that I do but it hasnt happened so far. I am pleased with the hitch.
Skutumpahman - 08/02/2022

2003 Dodge Ram Pickup

Exactly as advertised, easy installation. I purchased this hitch to avoid spending well over a thousand dollars on a torklift system. The torklift system is awesome if your towing a community behind your truck, i am only towing my motorcycle. There doesn't seem to be much in between the extremes for hitches that accommodate hitch extensions. As fore warned by the etrailer staff this hitch did not allow the use of my standard Torklift camper tie-downs. So i had to modify the tie-downs and have some welding done to compensate for the modifications. I am very happy with the installation and believe the hitch and extension will allow me to tow my cycle trailer with zero issues. Thanks etrailer!

Great product. Meets my expectations and needs

2011 Ram 3500

BEAST MODE ON! This thing is HUGE! I used to have a receiver integrated into a Ranch Hand bumper but found that massive bumper was only attached via the stock bumper brackets and we almost lost a 11k lbs trailer load recently. We upgraded to this massive CLASS V hitch and we are impressed. Super easy to install with a 2nd person.

My only complaint is it sits a little far back when used in combination with a Ranch Hand bumper such that the hitch was about 4" short of making it to the hole for the pin or for the pintle latch to open. So when you have a plasma cutter you simple just make it fit ;)

Love it. No problems since I installed it and Im a mad man on the road even with a heavy load. I never feel like the receiver is going to fail me. I havent gotten to use the 2.5 pintle hitch function yet but but I have no doubts it will work as advertised.
Joe O - 08/15/2019


Installation is easily done in 30 minutes in the driveway. Some maneuvering is needed to get the Curt receiver past the factory receiver mounting brackets. There is a clearance issue between the Curt receiver and a factory crossmember on both sides which can be remedied by adding a 3/4" grade 8 washer between the receiver and the frame on each side. It is easiest to torque down the four vertical bolts before installing the two horizontal ones as they interfere with getting a socket on the two rear vertical bolts. Curt did a good job eliminating all failure points (bolts) on the receiver hitch itself and the welds are solid. Overall the Curt receiver is overkill in a good way and it would be hard for even a good fabricator to design one that is stronger. Included are pictures of how it looks on a relatively tall factory height 2009 Dodge 3500 DRW with a 6" Fastway drop and 1220 pounds of tongue weight.

Dodge Ram Pickup

The hitch took a few days to ship once it got to the final shipping location the package was damaged and shipped back to etrailer (ups shipment fault not etrailer) without me ever seeing the box. I called etrailer and they shipped a new one out within minutes. Talk about awesome. It arrived in a few days unharmed. As far as installation on my Dodge Ram 3500 dually, it was pretty straight forward. There was one issue. The most forward bolt had to have a rectangle steel piece, that must be fished through the frame rail. This step was a nightmare and I ruined one of my telescoping magnets. Overall great product, heavy and the finish looks great.


Very solidly built with straightforward no drill installation.

Great upgrade.
JeffinTD - 07/03/2022


Shipped out quickly. Directions where easy to follow. The fishing wire to fish bolts into place was great. Easy install with basic hand tools.


Received my hitch receiver and installed it in about 2 or 3 hours working by myself. I could do it much faster now. They include these really cool wires for fishing the bolts and washers through the frame. The instructions were straight forward. The only complaint I have is that I lost some ground clearance but since this is installed directly below the factory hitch you have no choice. It is certainly heavy duty.

2011 Ram 3500

Well built reciever. Not a perfect fit tho, but as close as its gets i guess. Very heavy-duty. I would like to see a replacement for the factory location.

Still the same a year later.
Fred - 10/07/2021


We received the hitch receiver in a timely manner. Box was beyond destroyed by UPS but the two items we ordered were still in the box and all the hardware. Items were not damaged but just a few scuffs and scratches. Once we got the receiver under the truck we (myself and my husband) lined up the mounting holes by using a jack …My husband tried not using the fishwire to put the spacers and bolts in and kept loosing them inside the frame rail. Guys! If you loose these inside the frame it will take small fingers to get them out so have your wife ready to help you or just use the fishwire per the directions. Once he got on track with the directions, install went pretty quick and easy…following the directions carefully (because I read them!!) Bolted right up underneath the factory tow hitch receiver. We’re still waiting on our WDH to be able to tow our trailer so I don’t have a review on performance but I can say this thing is heavy duty for sure. Will update once we are able to get out on the road.
We had to order this because our new trailer over rated the factory tow package receiver for our truck.


Receiver takes a little dexterity to install but it is doable. Work well with the Curt weight distribution hitch.. made very well, heavy duty quality welds. I am very pleased with the product I would recommend this receiver to anyone looking for a well made heavy duty trailer hitch

Ford Ranger

Install was smooth and easy. Definitely a 2 person job with getting the hitch into place. Will be towing my small Ford Ranger from Louisiana to Oklahoma in a few weeks so will report back how well things go. So far couldn’t be more satisfied.

Hitch has performed flawlessly with zero issues. I use it to tow my boat twice a month and have also used it to tow a few vehicles on a flat bed trailer. Bolts have never come lose and I love knowing the system is rated for way more than what I am towing.

Fast shipping accurate description.

2003 Dodge Ram Pickup

No issues with the hitch itself at all, its a nice sturdy assembly. I would recommend having two strong people for an easy install. I did it by myself with a floor jack, but another set of strong hands would have been much better. The etrailer install video does a good job of showing how to use the fish wire for the bolts. But, on my 2003 Ram 3500 long bed the bumper bracket bolts keep you from lifting the hitch vertically. I had to slide it in from the rear to clear the welded on nuts, so you don't want the bolts in place till the hitch is up there at least on my long bed 3500. I held the hitch in place with a floor jack while I fished in the plates and bolts. This is a great option if you don't want to lift the bed to remove a factory hitch. Having the two stacked receivers is a first for me, but I didn't want to remove the OEM set up with all my heavy tool boxes in the bed.

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Great hitch, fit right up underneath factory one on my 04 3500 dodge. Little bit hard to get bolts in, recommend having small retractable magnet to help pick them up or retrieve if you drop inside frame.

2012 Ram 3500

Very strong hitch. Simple, straightforward installation. One person install with ratchet strap and floor jack.


Installation picture


Simple product, works well, has help up.


bolted right up, use it everyday with no problems

2012 Ram 3500

Five star for price and shipping. Three star to curt. The hitch is square with the truck. Where the ball hitch slides in is not square with the rest of the hitch. The ball hitch sits at a 6:30 position. Works fine, looks bad.

Tough hitch, I wish the receiver part was 1/2 longer so I could use weight safe hitch in up position. It does not stick out as far as stock so it hits bumper in up position.
Todd M - 07/06/2018

2012 Dodge Ram Pickup

I ordered this class-V hitch to pull a 22' bumper-pull, tandem-axle trailer I bought for a compact tractor and implements, with a total trailer gross trailer weight of 12,000 pounds with a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500. The hitch fit under the OEM class-IV hitch, which is still installed on my truck). I had it installed. It took less than an hour, and I was on my way. Very heavy-duty (overkill for my trailering needs), and looks great on the back of my truck.

  • Will a Curt Trailer Hitch # C15809 fit a 2012 Dodge Ram 2500 Mega Cab
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15809 that you referenced will work on your 2012 Dodge Ram 2500 Mega Cab. Cab and chassis model trucks come from the factory without truck beds on them at all. Typically trucks are bought like this so a flat-bed or service body can be installed. Check out the picture I attached that shows a cab and chassis truck.

  • Recommendation for Installing a Hitch on a 1995 Ford F700 Dump Truck
    Since we do not have any confirmed hitch fits for your 1995 Ford F700 your best option would be to find a very qualified fabricator in your area, explain to him what you are trying to do and then let him make you something that will work. We have some universal fit hitches, but none of them have the capacity (or even close) to what you would need so I would not recommend them.

The Cab and Chassis truck spring mount would extend below the bottom of the frame. Please take a look at the diagram I've provided showing what the spring mount SHOULD look like.
