Recommendation for Adding Clearance with Factory Gooseneck Kit on Short Bed Ram 2500


will the #RP19315 rise ball work,and what safety chain puck system is required . is there a offset ball or other method to get more cab clearance with this factory gooseneck prep pkg.


Expert Reply:

The Reese High-Rise Pop-In Ball # RP19315 referenced in your question does indeed fit the factory rail kit on your 2014 Ram 2500. For safety chain loops that fit the factory pucks, you can use the Reese Safety Chain Holder # RP30145, which comes in a quantity of 1.

We also have standard (without a rise) gooseneck ball kit from Reese with # RP30140, which is designed specifically for your Ram 2500. This includes the 2-5/16 inch ball, 2 safety-chain hookups, a rubber cover to keep the ball hole from from debris, and a storage bag.

There is not an offset gooseneck ball currently available that is designed to fit the factory puck on your truck.

Another option is an offset coupler like the B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler # BWTEXA4200. This inner tube will attach to your gooseneck trailer to give you an extra 10 inches of clearance between your truck cab and trailer. It fits on standard 4 inch diameter gooseneck outer tubes.

I have attached the written installation instructions and a short video demonstration on this product that you can also take a look at.
