Class V Trailer Hitch that Fits Under Factory Hitch on a 2016 Ram 2500 Short Bed  


I have a factory hitch on my 2016 Ram 3/4 ton short box but I want a higher capacity. Does this hitch fit trucks that have the factory hitch?


Expert Reply:

Yes, the Curt Class V trailer hitch # C15409 will fit your 2016 Ram 2500 short bed with the factory hitch. It fits beneath the factory hitch once installed. This hitch is rated for 17,000 pounds gross trailer weight so you would just want to check your owner's manual to make sure your truck configuration is rated as high. Whichever has the lower capacity, the hitch or the truck, is the capacity you will need to go by.

The recommended ball mount for this hitch is # C45341. But if you need a specific rise or drop to tow the trailer level you can use the link I have provided that shows how to measure.
