  • Whatever your task at hand -- whether its launching that boat before daybreak, setting up your camper before the rush or getting a final load to the dump before close -- CURT class 3 trailer hitches offer the strength needed for serious towing. They make it easy to hitch up and Bring It, offering a vehicle-specific fit and the weight capacity to handle a variety of trailers. Custom class 3 hitches are the most common type of receiver hitch for pickup trucks and SUVs. Because of their weight range, they are also found on full-size cars, crossovers and minivans. Each custom class 3 hitch is made vehicle-specific. This particular model fits certain years of the Ram 1500, 2500 or 3500 and Dodge Ram 1500, 2500 or 3500 (see application info to verify vehicle compatibility). It provides a weight carrying capacity of 6,000 lbs. GTW and 600 lbs. TW. It is also compatible with a weight distribution hitch for level towing and a rating of 10,000 lbs. WD and 1,000 lbs. WDTW. CURT class 3 trailer hitches are typically used to tow utility trailers, boat trailers, campers, snowmobile or ATV haulers and more (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest-rated towing component). Each class 3 hitch has a 2" receiver tube and is tested in accordance with SAE J684 for safety. To ensure that CURT class 3 receiver hitches have what it takes for serious trailering, they are designed using a hands-on approach and are constructed with high-strength steel and precise welding. We also protect our class 3 hitches in a co-cured finish of liquid Bonderite and black powder coat for superior resistance to rust, chipping and UV damage. Plus, to give you the confidence to Bring It no matter what your next task is, all class 3 hitches are backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

  • The CURT folding ball gooseneck hitch is an innovation in gooseneck technology, offering a unique solution to the problem of a misplaced or stolen trailer ball. Rather than having a fixed trailer ball that obstructs your truck bed space or a removable ball that locks into place using a set of pins, a folding ball gooseneck hitch features a permanently attached ball that hinges down into a small compartment within the hitch. When folded down, the gooseneck ball remains out of the way and allows you to make full use of your truck bed. When folded back up again, it provides a reliable towing connection for your gooseneck trailer. No matter which position the ball is in, it remains fixed to your pickup truck, deterring theft and preventing loss. The CURT over-bed folding ball gooseneck hitch is just another example of CURT quality and ease of use. This durable hitch has a gross trailer weight capacity up to 30,000 lbs. and a tongue weight capacity of 7,500 lbs. A 2-5/16" trailer ball, 3/8" thick top plate, six-hole mounting design and U-bolt safety chain hookups ensure that your trailer and payload stay securely attached. The folding mechanism of the over-bed folding ball gooseneck hitch features a stainless steel safety pin and pivot spring to prevent binding, and it comes with a T-handle to make operation of the ball quick and easy. To top things off, we finish each over-bed folding ball gooseneck hitch in a durable carbide powder coat to resist rust and give it a limited lifetime warranty for peace of mind

2006 dodge ram 2500 cannot get dash out.

Question From rhersh on 2006 dodge ram 2500 cannot get dash out.

06 dodge ram 2500 Trying to remove dash to repair heater. Seems like dash is still attached in the top center. Do I need to remove the metal tubing frame to get the dash out?

Response From Hammer Time Top Rated Answer

No, it will come out all in one piece. There are a series of bolts across the top at the windshield and a couple more at the center at the floor. There are also 3 bolts above the steering column that you access after dropping the column.

Response From rhersh

Thanks for the info! it helped, I now have the dash loose but I cannot find the airbag control module. I have the Haynes and the chilton manuals but where they say it is, it is not there and I do not want to pull the dash out with out this disconected. They say it is under the cup holder and ash tray but no luck. Again thank's for your help.

Response From Hammer Time

As long as the battery has been disconnected for at least 30 minutes you shouldn't have to worry about that.

Response From rhersh

Ok! Thanks so much for your help, it has made this alot easier. Thanks again.

Went through 3 throwout bearings in 1 month/ 2003 Dodge Ram 2500

Question From gr8white on Went through 3 throwout bearings in 1 month/ 2003 Dodge Ram 2500

My throw out bearing went in my 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 manual long bed 2 wheel drive. I had it replaced by a friend and that one went in the next 200 miles. I then replaced it with another and that one went in 40 miles. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? It is killing me financially!

Response From Discretesignals

Engine size? Hydraulic clutch system is going to take up the free play

What happened to the original clutch release bearing? Was a clutch job done on this?

This is a 5.7 Liter Hemi. I am pulling a 13k Lb 5th wheel across the country. I bought the truck at a dealership a year ago and they replaced the tranny with a Junk Yard tranny. almost 1 year later the throw out bearing went. 3 weeks ago myself and a friend put in a high performance clutch kit with a new throwout bearing and all. That throwout bearing went in 2 weeks. Friday night we ripped the tranny apart again and put in a new throwout bearing. None of these parts were OEM which may have been a mistake. 40 miles after putting the new bearing in it went again. Im going broke here and dont know what to do.

Response From Discretesignals

Could be installation error, the front bearing support is worn out causing the bearing to bind or cock, and/or the aftermarket performance clutch system may have caused a difference in tolerances that is putting too much load on the bearing which results in it overheating. I'd say go back to the OEM set up and be sure to follow the manufacture's service procedures.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

? Something is all wrong IMO.

OK - Used trans when you bought it lasted a year for the record. Nothing since is lasting apparently so ask what type of failure do you find with the release bearing? Noise and a roughness when pressure applied then feel that when it's in your hands to replace it?
Not sure I understand the NO FREE PLAY thing/comment. None are supposed to "ride" on pressure plate and if it did I still can't see why it would wear out the bearing so fast - 200 miles then 40 miles!
If you did "ride" the clutch and said not I would think clutch disc itself would take the hit and wear or if it can "self ride" by lack of free play. Not certain but when motor mounts allow too much motion (said quite a load pulled) some will lose that free play during load times which is why it's there is less free play under load.


OK: It's not behaving and think somehow super high heat or perhaps wobble of trans input shaft to pilot bearing is wildly off/worn or improper fit somehow by used trans?
Release bearing really isn't doing a thing when pedal isn't pressed or shouldn't be.
Didn't see any mention of machining flywheel - if worn from slipping would think the clutch disc would show heat damage from slipping more than the bearing.
There has to be some mis-match of parts or improper installation none I can think of would cause the bearing to fail so fast without some wild bad feel right away when put back together.


1. I wouldn't have use some HP clutch and consider going back to OE
2. Measure pilot bearing I.D. and O.D. of trans input shaft. Usually a smear of grease used for those or noise possible?
3. Evidence of the high heat if so?
4. Motor and trans support mounts checked.


Has to be some improper installation or part issue IMO for this trouble so fast. May be the wrong used trans from back when causing something but can't think of how that worked for a year?


My own observations with clutch issues is usually tech allowing trans to hang on input shaft before snugging up trans or some a mess with oil fast from like a rear main seal of engine soaking friction parts badly.


Unless just inferior parts this isn't adding up too well yet to me,

I don't think that is entirely true. When you install a slave cylinder its plunger is compressed against the fork as you put it on. And if you take it back off the plunger extends due to internal spring pressure. The pressure is pushing the bearing against the pressure plate fingers.

The bearings they use today are designed to be constantly running. The hydraulic system takes up the freeplay as the clutch wears and there is slight preload put on the bearing as it is touching the pressure plate fingers. Vehicles with manual linkage and cables have adjustment you can make to adjust the freeplay that still puts the bearing into a preloaded state against the pressure plate.

Infact, sometimes chirping sounds with the clutch pedal out while the engine is running are caused by a faulty slave cylinder.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

I get the concept DS with ability for no play much like disc brake pistons close and do almost to actually touch but no real force to make it fail like this? In that case the brake would nudge or back off only enough via a square "O" ring if you will torqueing ever so little and returning.


So - What makes a bearing fail? To me, overloaded, heat enough to lose its "hardened" properties. Bad to begin with in the cards too. Does or is it able to slide on input shaft? IDK - I'd think you'd notice a problem instantly if conditions harsh enough to fail so fast.
Guess I'd have to see what happened to what parts AFTER the failure. Something tells me there was something wrong back when a junkyard trans was used?


More questions than answers for this at this point, T

Response From Discretesignals

Without being there to see what state everything was in when the bearing was installed or to even see how the bearing failed, your guess is good as mine, Tom.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

I'm running out of idea on this. Now some questions:


*Who is declaring this is a release bearing problem at all?
*Once said a flywheel could make one go bad? After a year??
*Once in your hands there shouldn't be any question if the bearing is bad or not and if not sure it might take another opinion on this.


What and when does this express symptoms such as just when clutch pedal pushed or other times too? If you or friend have left this trans hanging while fastening it up it just might have harmed input shaft to this trans.


All guesses that I think would be clear if this was in front of any of us.


One more - I'm really taken with a 40 mile failure like this. No joke, only see this and most with bearing that are made in China. Not blaming a place just that the reputation of their bearings wherever used lacks sadly. When duplicate real issues happen with a part when there's no other good reason choose another brand or even pay for a dealer part,

Response From Hammer Time Top Rated Answer

Does your clutch pedal have a couple inches of free play at the top?

You don't drive with your foot resting on it do you?

Response From gr8white

Hi,

I dont leave my foot on the clutch. There is no play at the top. Someone said that if the flywheel isnt torqued correctly that it can cause the throwout bearing to go bad quick. But I have been through 2 bearings in the last few weeks.

Response From Hammer Time

There isn't supposed to be any contact with the throw out bearing when your foot is off the clutch but if you have no free play, something is wrong, possibly an adjustment.

Location of oil pressure sender 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 5.9L Diesel

Question From bowldidley on Location of oil pressure sender 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 5.9L Diesel

Could someone please give me the location of the oil pressure sender on a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 5.9L Cummins Turbo Diesel. Having Trouble locating it and think it's the problem. Gauge reads 0 oil pressure - changed oil - started it up and shut it down - checked oil filter - plenty of oil getting to the filter. Am I on the right track and if so need to know where to locate
the sender>

Please

Response From Tom Greenleaf

I shouldn't have even replied to this as I'm not sure but this looks real important so I'll suggest some places. The sender switch is probably located near the oil filter and may require a special tool to remove it. If a single wire it would likely be that the switch post is direct ground or dead open with engine off and is like a resistor as oil pressure builds up. Works kind of like a dimmer switch.

I think it would be more likely that wiring is pulled apart, broken or chaffed somewhere. If multiple wires use all caution as then it could be a direct line of info for the computer. As early as 1970 some cars shut the engine down if the switch was broken or read zero pressure,

Response From bowldidley

Tom,

Just wanted to say thankyou very much for responding. Yes, this is very
important. I recently got divorced and I am on my own. I am fair at some
mechanics but I don't know this diesel very good. Trying to learn. I have
looked and looked but because I can't find a picture of this sender I kinda
am lost. So thankyou for your response. It is very much appreciated, more than you know.

Pam

Mr. W2O - that's perfect and so glad you jumped in. If that was my own vehicle I would freak till I figured that out. That diag should do the trick,
