From your picture I can tell your 2005 Dodge Ram 3500 is a short bed so you'll need a slider hitch to allow you the clearance needed to make tight turns. Since car haulers can be pretty heavy you'll want a higher rated hitch like the Curt Q25 part # C16566 which has a 25k capacity.

For a rail kit to install in the bed of your truck you'll want a custom install kit like the part # C16420-204 which will install in less time than a universal kit and will minimize drilling.

For a 7-way to install in the bed of your truck to allow an easier way to connect to the trailer's wiring you'd also want the part # 41157.
