The bumper has what looks like a hitch behind the bumper . A 3" or so tube frame, not normal cheap bumper brackets. The bumper says 5000 lb capacity right on it . But the hole fore the trailer ball is deeper then most shanks I have seen . I put a 2" shaft ball on on it and now threads even popped through. Wow lots of innuendos... Lol

Sorry forgot bout this. Apparently ram runs a heavy duty cross member behind the bumper actually capable of towing as when I bought a receiver was just a small box and it mounted to that beam anyways . But it does get trailer father from my Bumber
