Default trailer hitch

hey guys and gals...little new here
question...I searched for the model number I have and couldn't find anything.

but..I found a 58903 hitch for cheap...to replace my rusted out stock hitch.
From what I've read, this hitch is made for the 2500 and 3500 trucks...mine is 1500 4x4...will it fit

thanks for your response

I can't say for sure, but now you can call your local Dodge dealers Parts Dept. & ask

i would only be assuming that frame widths would be the same, so i won't say for sure

I had a 1998 RAM 1500 4x with a Mopar class III hitch with a part #58903. It was installed by the dealer and worked fine.
