Back to the OP's question, I had the same issue when I just upgraded to 2500HD. The hooks will fit in the front holes on either side of the receiver if the spring clip is removed.

Also to the person that heated the hooks to spread them out, not sure but you may have changed the load rating on the hooks by heating them.

True the load rating would be changed, but the load rating of the hook is not for pulling strength it is based for lifting capacity. And not at all for a shock load. (Trailer breaking away). Pulling a 10,000 lb load and lifting a 10,000 lb load are not the same.

No need to remove the spring clips. We picked up our new TT a couple of weeks ago and I had the same issue. I took a pipe and opened the hooks just a little. Now they go on and the spring clips work the same.
