  • 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

Which truck to buy?

Showing 11 out of 14 Posts | Show 3 Hidden Posts
Question From mmullm1 on Which truck to buy?

I am going to buy a used truck to carry a slide-in camper, weighing about 1600 lbs. The trucks I'm considering are a 2003 Dodge Ram 3500 diesel, and a 2004 Sierra 2500 diesel, both around 110k miles. They both drive fine, both look fine. I'm not specifically looking for a diesel, it's just what's turned up. I've read the pro/con on gas vs. diesel, and I've never had a diesel truck. Both are approx. 20K $ (my budget), both from dealers.
Advise, suggestions?

Response From mmullm1

(not sure if I'm replying in the correct place)
Thanks everyone for the advise. I've been a couple days reading in various forums, and frankly I'm a bit leery now of buying a diesel at all. It seems they all have problems, and when they do it's expensive. So again, thanks.

Response From re-tired

Yes the diesels have their share of quirks. But for the task that you want the truck to do their a perfect fit. To go gas your gonna need a big block , probably with a turbo ,and that setup will have its problems also. MY son bought a 03 dodge diesel dually ,turbo with intercooler to haul a 50ft 3 car hauler .A friend of his went into the same business but with a ford dually gas big block . Both have needed repairs , water pumps on both , fuel pumps on the ford , couple of injectors on the dodge. But the diesel is getting far better milage . And my son takes loads into mountains in SC. The ford made one similar trip . But had to carry only 2 cars and used a ton of fuel. And had to use high test gas.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Just my comment: Why so much $$ for trucks w so many miles?

T

Response From re-tired

The dodge dually really holds its resale value MY son looked high and low , even internet . He finallly found an 03 with 100k on it needed a litle work . He stole it for 8 grand . When he looked for salvage parts ........forget it.......... used engines where going for 2 to 4 grand depending on milage . Impossible to find goodies like used turbo , intercooler . injectors etc. BUT , he now has a reprogrammer on it, adjustable waste gate , 4 inch exhaust, cold air intake, high pressure injectors . 27 inch wheels . With the boost cranked up and the programmer set in power mode it will pull a house .He takes 3 suv's on 50' 3 axle trailer into the Carolina's with no problems .He has been offered 3 times what he has in it .New ones loaded and leather seats go for near 50k.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

It's all just shocking to me! First car I paid $100 for, second was just $50. I know, I know - gotta come out of this cave I live in

Tom

Response From Discretesignals

$50? I am curious to know which vehicle that was?

Maybe this one?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Not far from it but it was a totally legal 1963 Ford Falcon with ZERO options - not even a radio! Hey - Good drive-train and decent body and anything else I could fix. Wiped it out hitting a tree being stupid at probably 40 MPH and still drove it home! No body hurt at all and that was pre seat belt even or padded dash boards!

That car is/was in the top ten of hundreds I've owned and never let me down. 144 straight six and NOT underpowered! Go figure?

"Three on the tree" shifting meant you couldn't scratch the family jewels, well, not while driving

If this site wasn't so much clean fun I wouldn't be here,

Tom


Response From re-tired Top Rated Answer

I too cut my teeth on vintage iron. MY sons generation goes for the gusto . The first car I got to drive was my dads 57 nomad . The first car I could say was mine (paid for working at Mc Donalds) was a 47 woody $500 in pieces, boy I had plans for it.. Sold it for $500 while in boot camp . Thats listed under :

Things I wish I had a chance to do over.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

I don't think you can get a door for a 57 Nomad for $500 now - times change,

Response From IndiaDrives

Not sure which truck to buy? Here's a step-by-step approach to choosing a pickup truck. Find a truck that will do the job you need it to do, fits your budget, and has the type of styling you're looking for.

Response From zmame

My personal opinion on that era of diesel engines is without a doubt cummings is the best!.. You can't kill those engines they are the last of true diesel engines even still used draft pipes up till 2007!.. change your fuel filters regulartly, oil changes on time and drain your fuel/water seperator every oil change you will be golden.

Duramax is a ok engine too and mated with the awsome allison transmission, but these diesel engines are alot more complicated and more expensive to repair. In my opinion not as reliable as the cummings.

I know the Duramax is common for EGR valves, EGR coolers and injector problems. I don`t know what durmax injectors are worth, but ford 6.0L are worth about $300 a pop.

Definitly stay away from 6.0L diesel fords.

Response From Discretesignals

Did you take your girlfriend, wife, boyfriend, which ever the case may be, with you when took one for a test drive. The noise and smells are an acquired taste and some women don't like the clacking and aroma from the exhaust. Just remember you have to sit next to her when you go on your road trips and the less nagging the better.

If you are interested in a particular one, my best advice is to drive it to a shop that does diesel truck repair and have them inspect the vehicle from top to bottom before making a purchase.
