CURT OEM-style gooseneck hitches are built for specific pickup trucks to tackle big jobs. OEM-style hitches are unique because they do not require additional installation brackets. They bolt directly onto the vehicles frame and use pre-existing bolt holes to install in 45 minutes or less. They also require no welding, bed flange trimming or bed removal. This particular hitch is designed to fit specific years of the Ram 2500. Each OEM-style Ram hitch comes with a factory-style gooseneck ball and all the necessary hardware for a complete installation. This Ram OE gooseneck hitch offers a gross trailer weight capacity of 30,000 lbs. and a vertical load limit of 7,500 lbs. It is perfect for towing everything from farm animals in your livestock trailer to industrial materials on a flatbed (limited to lowest rated towing component). It comes with a patented 2-5/16" gooseneck trailer ball that can be installed and removed easily with a simple quarter-turn of the integrated lever. To ensure that this Ram gooseneck hitch has what it takes to keep up with you and your truck, it also comes with an A-coat finish for excellent rust resistance. It has heavy-duty 5/8" safety chain anchors for a reliable backup connection, and it is backed with a limited lifetime warranty for peace of mind.
