Which B and W Trailer Hitch for 1984 Dodge Ram 250 Custom


Looking at purchasing the following for my 1984 Dodge 250 custom. ETBC7 installation kit, 5535 brake controller, 20127 controller plug and BWHDRH2512 Hitch. Are there correct? Not positive which bumper I have. How far does the hitch down to come out below the bumper? Any other recommendations on my purchase?


Expert Reply:

For your 1984 Dodge Ram 250 custom the correct B and W trailer hitch comes down to the style of bumper you have. The part # BWHDRH25122 fits a standard size bumper which looks like an average truck bumper and drops down 2-3/4 inches from truck frame to hitch crosstube. The # BWHDRH25198 instead fits if you have a deep drop bumper which looks taller than a normal one. It drops down 5-1/8 inches from where it attaches to the truck frame to the hitch crosstube. I'd be willing to be if you had one you'd know this. I attached a picture of what a deep drop bumper looks like though.

To install the Brake EVN # TK63VR you'll need the install harness # 20127 as well as the kit to convert your 4-way to a 7-way part # ETBC7.
