Can a BlueOx 6500 Pound TowBar Be Used To Flat Tow A 2014 Dodge Ram 1500 Eco Diesel


I have a 2014 ram 1500 Laramie 4 x 4 eco-diesel. I have a blue ox towbar rated for 6500 pounds. My curb weight is approximately 5500 pounds. Can I tell my truck with this blue ox towbar? Thank you


Expert Reply:

Yes you can use the Blue Ox Alpha 2 Non-Binding Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch - 6,500 lbs # BX7380 to flat-tow your Dodge Ram. The typical 2014 ram 1500 Laramie 4x4 ecodiesel curb weight is 5,308 pounds.

If you need the other parts to complete the flat tow package I recommend these to complete it.

The Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit # RM-154. This is a custom fit wire harness that will connect your RV's tail, brake and turn signal lights to your towed car's lighting system.

The etrailer Classic Base Plate Kit - Fixed Arms # e98945 will provide custom fit base plate attachments to connect your tow bar to your 2014 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie eco-diesel.

The Demco Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System w/ Wireless Coachlink Monitor - Proportional # DM86VR Is a permanent install system that will stay hidden in your truck and will make sure that your vehicle brakes and slows down in sync with your motor home.
