B&W Gooseneck Hitch Fit for 2016 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel 5-1/2 ft Bed


Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel 5-1/2 ft Bed? The video on your site for BWGNRK1309 does not address 2014 and newer Ram 1500 Ecodiesel. So will it definitely work on a 2016 Ram 1500 Ecodiesel short bed both with or without air suspension? Thank you


Expert Reply:

Gooseneck hitch fits for the 2016 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel are limited to those trucks that do NOT have the OEM air suspension system. All bed lengths, 5-1/2-foot, 6-foot and 8-foot, have this same fit limitation regarding the air suspension. This was not the case with the 2015 model year.

B&W Gooseneck hitch # BWGNRK1309 is a confirmed fit for your truck so long as it does not have the air suspension. Since you have the short bed you may need to use B&W's Offset Ball # BWGNXA4685 which will give you 4-inches of additional clearance between the truck and trailer.

For a wiring harness you can use part # PK11893-11932 that plugs in inline with your existing 7-way.
