I recently purchased a RAM 2104 3500 DRW with factory hitch prep. I need a hitch to fit it and am having trouble finding any except the MOPAR 25,000 pound hitch. Are any of you using it and how does it work for you. Also, do you know anyone using it?

You found the Time machine, how nice are the 2104 Rams?
There are B&W's and Reese's that will fit.

Go with the RVK 3600 hitch from B&W. It will fit the 4 puck system in your truck bed. tweets.com has them for $1,100 and change and free shipping. 25K towing and 6,500# pin weight. No adapter required.

IMHO the best hitch on the market.

I use the Reese 21k hitch with the picture frame adaptor in my 2014 3500. I love it. Plus the adaptor raises the hitch about 2inches which offsets the raising of the walls of the cargo box and gives me the reccomended six inch minimum separation between truck and 5er..

Go with the B&W, fits the pucks and is a fantastic hitch. Their customer service is AWESOME. The B&W owners are fanatical fan-boy cult-like cheerleaders for the product because it's an awesome product (yes, I'm included in that).

That picture frame adapter in the photo above will accommodate most all standard hitches. The new B&W does not need the adapter which is like $400. The B&W drops down into the pucks directly, pretty slick.
I already have a hitch so I'd most likely just get the adapter. If I didn't have a hitch I'd go with the new B&W.

I have the Mopar frame adapter, which is still in the box. Trying to sell it because I went with the Andersen Ultimate hitch instead.

I could not find the B&W puck style with a slider version.
