Recommended Trailer Receiver Hitch for 2004 Dodge Ram 1500  


Hi.. I bougth this ram 1500 RWD, and i am looking for a trailer hitch for it. Could you help me find the right one for it? it has the bar under the car..


Helpful Expert Reply:

The correct hitch for your truck will depend on what capacity you were needing. For instance, if you'll be towing trailers weighing less than 6000 lbs, a Class III hitch like the # 75662 would be ideal. The hitch would bolt to the existing crossmember and the rear bumper.

For a heaver trailer (assuming your truck has the necessary capacity), a Class IV hitch like # 14361 would work well.

The Curt # C15409 you referenced is only a fit for trucks already equipped with the factory hitch.

You might also need the following to complete your towing system:

Trailer wiring harness with 4-pole trailer connector, part # C55504
Ball mount, part # C45230
Trailer ball, part # C40051 for a 1-7/8, # 40038 for a 2 inch or # C40007 for a 2-5/16 inch
Hitch pin, part # C21500 or # e98882 for a hitch lock
