    hey Gents. Sorry this is off topic but I can’t seem to get the Cumminsforum guys to respond... my factory 7way trailer socket was crushed by the previous owner. I’m finally going to replace it but absolutely cannot find a plug in replacement... Etrailer only has one listed for 2000 and up dodges and it has a single 7 pin terminal. My current has two terminals a 3 pin and. 4 pin. I have found one that looks like it’s correct but it lists as a Lexus and Toyota connector.... if any of you guys have any experience on these I would certainly appreciate your help!

    Yes. It’s a 96 ram 2500 Cummins 4x4 with factory tow package. the factory 7 pin socket on the bumper was crushed. About 10 inches to a foot under the bed it has two terminals connecting it to the wiring harness. (One square with 4 pins and 1 flat with three pins)

    It may still have the part number on it, on a sticker or tag. I won't get back to my trucks for a couple days to check them, to see what they have.

    My 97 2500 was like that. Have you tried a junk yard?
