When you do get a hitch installed I would also get a WD equalizer which will eliminate any sway from the trailer no matter how much weight your pulling (as long as you stay within your GVWR) You can never have too much hitch stability better safe than sorry.

What is this hitch rated at?
Stealership told me 12,000lbs. But he also said it was the only hitch made for the 2013 RAM

I'm in the same boat as many other posters. Why the frack would they add a tow package with brake controller and no receiver hitch? Seems to only make sense to sell everything needed to tow.

+1 on this.
I ordered mine last Monday.
Called them on Thurday, and received it on Friday.
When I called, they said they were kind of backed up.

I am not sure why but plenty RAM trucks come wired for towing with no actual hitch. My build sheet is below and you can see for yourself that it came from the factory that way (I didn't order my truck... Just came across it recently and picked it up for a great price). I have since added Line-X and a class IV hitch.

It may have came with a hitch, and the dealer removed it to add to a truck that had no hitch.

In any case put a class IV hitch - - not a bumper hitch, or some small bolt on hitch - - price difference is not worth the smaller hitch.

Good luck,
Balloo
