The above are fine hitches, Reese make a decent receiver as well.

When you have a hitch receiver installed, you will also need a wiring harness installed as well, certainly if you will be towing anything with lights. I suggest going with a 7-pin as oppossed to a 4 or 5 pin since many newer trailers these days require a 7-pin. Its worth the extra few bucks. Also, you can get a 7 to 4 and 5 pin adapter whihc gives you all combinations.

Good luck.

SnowChief- 2011 Rams are prewired with both 4-pin and 7-pin connectors.

HEMIHP- This is what's on the trucks sitting on my dealer's lot.

I don't remember where I ordered mine from or if it had free shipping but I paid $78 for the hitch itself. It took about 30 minutes to install.

This is the same hitch receiver I have. Works well for what I need it for.
