Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 RAM 1500 we’re going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the draw tight class five alter frame trailer hitch receiver, part number 41948.This is what our hitch looks like when it’s installed. As you can see, the cross tube is visible however this is a good sturdy hitch so it’s going to fit the look of the truck. It’s nice and tucked in underneath the bumpers so you’re not going to have to worry about it hitting your legs or shins on it when loading and unloading the vehicle. It’s going to be a class five. It’s going to be two inch by two inch. This forward hole here is the hitch pin hole.

It’s going be 5/8 inch in diameter. Back hole here is going to be for a J pin stabilization of ice only. What the J pin stabilization of ice is used for is taking the shake and play out of any of your hitch mount accessories.It’s going to have plate style safety chain rings. You can see the large opening allows of for many different size safety chain hooks. One thing I do like about this hitch and being rugged is if you can see everything is reinforced.

You’ve got reinforced welds, reinforced collar to give you a little extra stability on the receiver tube and even the safety chain rings, the plate is reinforced.You’re going to have a 1500 pound max ton weight which is a downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube. You’re going to have a 12,000 pound max trailer weight which is the trailer plus the load included. Now I do recommend checking your owners manual to make sure your vehicle can withstand that amount of weight. You’re going to want to pick the lowest number between the hitch and the vehicle. Now you can use weight distribution with this.

Tongue weight is going to stay the same, however, your trailer weights going to go up to 15,000 pounds.As far as the installation goes, I do recommend having two people because this is a heavy duty hitch. It is going to use existing holes in the frame and it’s going to come with all necessary hardware to get it installed.Now let’s give you a few measurements to help you when deciding on any hitch mount accessories you may need such as a bike rack, ball mount, or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost part of the bumper will be about three inches. From the ground to the top innermost part of the receiver tube will be about 19 inches. Now let’s show you how to get this installed.So to begin our installation, we’ve gone ahead and removed the spare tire.

What we need to do next is you’re going to have a bolt on both sides of the vehicle. It’s going to be holding your bumper beam up to your frame. It’s going to be this very forward bolt that we’re going to be removing. When you remove it we’re going to hold onto it because we’re going to be reinstalling it.We’re using a 13/16 socket. Now because this is going into a weld nut, I would suggest if you’re going to use power tools, loosen it with a wrench first. We’ll do that same thing to the other side. We’re also going to remove the furthest one to the back on both sides of the vehicle.Now we’re going to take one of your pull wires, one of your spacer blocks and one of your carriage bolts. You’re going to put your spacer block on. Then you’re going to thread your carriage bolt onto the pull wire. We’re going to do what’s called a reverse feed. We’re going to put the bolt head in first. We’re going to follow that with the spacer block and we’re going to pull them back out. We’re going to do the same thing on the other side of the vehicle.Next what we’re going to do is on the inside of the bumper beam, we’re going to take another pull wire, we’re going to go through the hole and we want to come out on the end. You’re going to take your spacer block, followed by the carriage bolt. Again, we’re going to thread the carriage
