CURT Xtra Duty class 5 trailer hitches go above and beyond in design, capacity and longevity to provide you with a dependable extension of your truck. These heavy-duty hitches are engineered to withstand the rigors of towing the largest of non-commercial trailers, matching the strength and dependability of full-size pickup trucks, vans and SUVs.
Each class 5 hitch is made for a vehicle-specific fit to ensure seamless integration and maximum towing power. This particular custom class 5 hitch is designed to mount onto certain years of the Ram 2500 or 3500 and Dodge Ram 2500 or 3500. A vehicle-specific design also provides the easiest possible installation, reducing or completely eliminating drilling and modifications. This hitch comes with high-strength grade-8 hardware for a solid mount.
This class 5 Dodge Ram hitch is built with an extra-large main body. The hitch is constructed from high-strength steel, and the center section is made extra-large to achieve the necessary towing capacity for tough jobs. This particular hitch is tested and rated for 17,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 2,550 pounds tongue weight. It can also be used with a weight distribution hitch and is rated to 17,000 lbs. WD and 2,550 lbs. WDTW. This makes it the ideal choice for all varieties of heavy-duty trailers — from full-size utility trailers and equipment haulers to horse trailers and yacht trailers (never exceed the lowest-rated towing component).
All CURT Xtra Duty class 5 hitches come with an industry-standard 2″ x 2″ receiver tube opening. This provides a versatile mount for a variety of heavy-duty ball mounts, pintle hitches, weight distribution hitches and other towing accessories. It can also readily accept a cargo carrier or bike rack for extra storage space. The 2″ hitch receiver is equipped with a steel collar for added strength, and the back of the receiver is open to allow for easy clean-out of dirt and debris. To keep the receiver hitch clean, a hitch tube cover can be installed when not use, helping to protect it against grime and corrosion.
To give you confidence for the road ahead and ensure the safety of you and your loved ones, every CURT custom tow hitch design is thoroughly tested according to SAE J684. All hitches are tested at an in-house testing facility, using real vehicles and multifaceted testing to simulate real towing conditions. All class 5 hitches are constructed with large safety chain loops to accept heavy-duty hooks and safety chains.
Like all CURT custom tow hitches, Xtra Duty class 5 hitches are made right here in the USA (may include imported hardware). Each one is engineered using real vehicles to ensure a truly custom fit for each application. Every trailer hitch is fabricated and welded using a combination of robotic and manual processes for absolute accuracy and efficiency.
Finally, all custom trailer hitches undergo an industry-leading finishing process for unparalleled rust, chip and UV protection. First the hitches are chemically and mechanically descaled for a smooth surface. Then, they are immersed in a liquid Bonderite coating that covers the tow hitch inside and out with an initial rust-resistant layer. Next, a highly durable carbide black powder coat finish is applied over the Bonderite. At last, the two finishes are cured together, forming a superior shield against scuffs, scratches and the elements.
CURT custom-fit trailer hitches are built for long-lasting dependability. Each one is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
