2019 Dodge Ram Pickup

I was nervous about installing a front hitch On My 2019 ram 2500 because I've seen some that stick way out and are just a goofy eyesore when not in use. This hitch installed very easy and fit perfectly!! Best of all you can't really even tell it's there when not in use unless you look for it. VERY pleased on how this turned out.



- C31089

Good sturdy receiver. Installed it on my Ram 2500 in order to haul a heavy bike while pulling a camping trailer. It fit perfectly. The only difficulty was getting the bolts loosened on the truck. My strong armed buddy was able to get them loosened with a breaker bar. Would certainly recommend this hitch.



- C31089
by:

Small bolts for back rail needed to be longer. With thickness of square washers ,frame and hitch the bolts were about 1/2 inch too short.



- C31089
by:

Well could have used some guides for installing the 4 smaller bolts. After about 30 mins and use of stainless steel wire wrapped around the threads we were able to get them installed. Pictures in the instructions were with the front bumper removed very deceiving but very helpful. Looks and works great.



- C31089
by:

The step works like advertised but is a little loose in the adapter used in my hitch to reduce to a 2" receiver. Though no fault of the step, one needs to be careful using the step since there is nothing to hold on to un the center of the truck. I am happy to have the step but a permanent side-mount step might be better if I could have found one that was reasonably priced. Overall, a good product.



- C31089
by:

I mounted this on my 2019 Ram 2500 so that I can push my travel trailer into tight spots and to have the option to mount a winch if off road. I work well though it took about two hours to install since I don’t have a lift at home. I leave the hitch retaining pin in so that the air dam has support. All in all I think it look like standard factory equipment.

The only front hitch that will fit a Ram Power Wagon. Had to buy two bolts and grind a 1/16 off each side of the passenger and driver side rail

The hitch arrived without a hitch! Haven’t installed yet but everything was there and in perfect condition. So far so good!

Instructions over simplified the install. Bolts are a bugger to get in with the bumper plastic cowl on. Be prepared to fight it or use some creative techniques. Also, I had to cut a bigger hole than shown in the coal to fit the front receiver and have room to get the pin in. Also, needs packaged better because arrived slightly damaged but looks like a sturdy product.



- C31089
by:
2019 Ram 2500

Fit perfectly. I used a motorcycle lift to help hold it in position while I installed the mounting bolts. It allowed for it to be a one man job.

Easy install just take your time

Perfect fit utilizing attached hardware. I did have professionally installed by a Curt authorized dealer. Took them about 30 minutes.

Good product, fitment is easy and the directions are easy to follow. The directions say to remove both factory bumper bolts, but the top bolt does not need to be removed..

Ask the Experts about this CURT Trailer Hitch



  • Recommended Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 2020 Ram 2500
    I have some great front mount trailer hitch options for a 2020 Ram 2500. The best one is the EcoHitch Hidden Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # EH37FR (Made by TorkLift) as it provides the most ground clearance. There are however other options such as the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C31089 which is also a great option and is more cost effective but sits lower to the ground therefore reducing ground clearance further.

  • How to Carry a Canoe While 5th Wheel Towing with a 2019 Ram 2500
    Thank you for all of the information! Even though your 5th wheel towing does limit what you can install at the back of your 2019 Ram 2500, this just means that we need to utilize the front of your pickup. What I recommend doing is installing the Curt Front Mount Hitch # C31089 along with the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Roof Rack System which consists of 59" Vortex Bars # RRVA150B-2 Black or # RRVA150S-2 Silver, the 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA, and the Fit Kit # DK043.

  • Which Front Mounted Receiver is Best for 2019 Ram 2500 Big Horn
    From both a cost and a ground clearance/approach angle standpoint I'd recommend going with the Draw-Tite # DT36MR front mounted receiver. The Curt # C31089 front hitch you'd looked at is a great item, but it would install so the bottom of the hitch recevier tube would sit even with the bottom of the bumper fascia/air dam. The Draw-Tite # DT36MR would sit at the top of the fascia, even with the underside of the bumper which allows for several more inches of ground clearance. The hitch is...

  • Best Front Hitch for 2019 Ram 2500 to Carry Bike Rack
    I can tell you that the Curt # C31089 will sit fairly flush or even slightly behind the farthest edge of the front end of your 2019 Ram 2500, so it's not exactly ideal for a bike rack. A better solution might be the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # DT36MR which has about a 4-1/2" longer receiver tube and will stick out a bit further from the bumper, making it better suited for carrying a bike rack. This front hitch also has a 500-lbs vertical load capacity,...

    Since most of the bed on your 2019 Ram 2500 will be off limits when towing a 5th wheel trailer, the best solution for also transporting your canoe will be with a front mount hitch and roof rack setup. Starting with the front hitch, I highly recommend the Curt # C31089 that offers plenty of vertical load capacity and also won't reduce the ground clearance on the truck. I have attached the written installation instructions that you can check out as well. Then with the front hitch installed,...

    So there are a couple of front-mounted trailer hitch receivers that fit your 2020 Ram 2500, and they do have different weight capacities, and different heights as well. The highest capacity at 750 lbs vertical load (like tongue weight) and 10,000 lbs line pull is the EcoHitch Hidden Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # EH37FR. The EcoHitch is not the lowest height, however, as it sits about an inch higher than the next option, which is from Curt. The Curt hitch does have a lower capacity...

    The Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch # C31089 you were looking at for your 2021 Ram 2500 Crew Cab 4WD Diesel is a confirmed fit. The reason the product page says fits diesel models and excludes diesel models is that it fits both engine styles where some of the other hitches available only fit one or the other. The # C31089 has a 500lb vertical load limit and 9000lb line pull rating making it a perfect choice for a winch or for carrying a bike rack or cargo carrier. I included a link to...

  • What is the Line Pull Rating On Curt Front Hitch for 2019 Ram 2500
    The Curt Front Hitch # C31089 is the only front hitch available for your 2019 Ram 2500 but the line pull rating is actually 9000-lbs for all Curt hitches, not 5000-lbs; so it's rated a bit higher than you might have thought. This front hitch provides a sturdy option to front mount a hitch on your truck. If you happen to need a winch tray that will work with a front hitch, I've linked our selection of winch plates to this answer so you can easily find them.

  • Should Front Hitch on 2019 Ram 2500 Bend When Attaching 2 Bike Rack
    A front hitch absolutely shouldn't bend when supporting a 2-bike rack or any other accessory, assuming it's total weight falls below the hitch's capacity. It's possible your friend had some heavy bikes and unknowingly exceed the hitch's weight capacity, but this definitely isn't normal and there isn't any difference in terms of the construction/strength of an equally rated front and rear trailer hitch. With all this in mind, I highly recommend the Curt Front Mount Hitch # C31089 for your...

  • Availability of Front Mounted Receiver for 2019 Ram 2500
    For your 2019 Ram 2500, you'll want to go with the Curt # C31089 front mounted receiver hitch. The hitch would use existing frame holes, so no drilling is required but depending on your truck's trim level, you might need to trim a 1-7/8 by 2-1/2 inch slot in the fascia under the front bumper as outlined in the instructions I've linked for you. The hitch as a 5000 line pull or a 500 lb vertical load limit, so it's be perfect for moving a small boat around in a tight space. The # 65063 hitch...

  • Differences Between The Curt And Draw-Tite Front Mounted Hitches For A 2021 Ram 2500
    There isn't much of a difference between the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT36MR and the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # C31089 since they both have the exact same line pull and vertical load capacities. Even though they are very similar for your 2021 Ram 2500 I recommend going with the Curt over the Draw-Tite because Curt manufactures their hitches right here in America and their powder coating process holds up better than the powder coating of its competitors....

The Torklift camper tie downs for your 2021 Ram are the part # TLD2140 and # TLD3113 which also are different from the older truck you have so they would have to be replaced as well.
