Recommend Hitch for a 48 Extension on a 2023 Ram 3500

Question:

I have a 2022 Ram 3500 with an in bed camper. I would like to use a 48" extension to tow my cargo trailer but I do not see one strong enough for my factory hitch. What hitch do I need to use one of the Torklift extensions? I saw this set up over the weekend and really liked it. I enclosed a picture.

Thanks for the picture! To use the TorkLift SuperTruss Hitch Extension 48" Long item # TLE1548 with your 2022 Ram 3500 you are going to want the TorkLift SuperHitch Magnum Trailer Hitch Receiver item # TLD1111-30. This hitch is custom fit and bolts to your Ram 3500 with included hardware. It fits both the 6-1/2' and 8' bed trucks along with single rear wheel and dual rear wheels so long as you have the factory hitch.

I really like this hitch because it has both a 2" and 2-1/2" receiver and a large towing capacity of 20,000 lbs without a weight distribution system. The stacked receivers give you multiple options for ball mounts and also allow you to tow a trailer and use a hitch mounted accessory like a bike rack.

The 48" long TorkLift SuperTruss Hitch Extension item # TLE1548 has a maximum gross trailer weight of 6,000 lbs that can increase to 12,000 lbs when used with a weight distribution system.

I also recommend the TorkLift Wiring Harness Extension item # TLW6048. This will extend your 3500's 7-way connector the 48" length of the extension to connect to your cargo trailer.

I have linked a picture that will show this extension in use.
