Trailer Hitch Installation - 2016 Chrysler Town and Country - Curt

Today on our 2016 Chrysler Town , Country we're going to take a look at, then also show you how to install the CURT custom fit class two trailer hitch receiver. This offers the 1-1/4" by 1-1/4" opening. Its part number is C12264. Now here's a good look at what the hitch is going to look like installed. Our crosstube runs all the way across the rear here but it's really going to be hidden up behind this rear fascia. It gives you a nice look.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2006 Chrysler Town and Country

Today on our 2006 Chrysler Town and Country we'll be installing the tow-ready T1 vehicle wiring harness with 4-pole flat trailer connector, part number 118300. The tow-ready wiring harness for our Town and Country stores easily out of sight and out of mind when not in use. To gain access to it, we just remove our jack storage cover here and we'll pull out our wiring harness, set it down here next to our latch for our tailgate on our van and we can shut it just like so. It's easily accessible now so we can hook up our trailer and I have this nice included dust cap here. This will work with any trailer that has a 4-pin flat connector. We hook up to our trailer, easily to get to. When we're done, we don't have to worry about having any electrical connections exposed outside of the vehicle which can corrode over time when exposed to the elements.



Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System Installation - 2005 Chrysler Town and Country

Today on our 2005 Chrysler Town and Country we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System, part number TDVR05096. This is what the Timbren Suspension Enhancement looks like once it's installed on your vehicle. What this one will do by replacing the factory bump stop it actually holds tension, so as you load the vehicle it will help support that, and help prevent your vehicle from squatting as much as it would normally with the factory bump stop in place. This does get stiffer the more weight is put on it, but you will also want to refer to your vehicle's owner's manual to see what the weight capacity is that your vehicle can handle. You'll want to be sure not to exceed that, but these do feature a capacity of 2,000 pounds, that they will help assist the suspension with. They're made of a very durable rubber design, that features a bolt that goes up though the center of it to bolt it into place. Your kit does come with four bolts, but you'll need to go with whichever bolt and lock washer is the correct size for your application. One thing that sets these apart from other suspension enhancements on the market is that these, when there's no load on the vehicle they're not going to change the ride quality at all.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Chrysler Town and Country - Curt

Today on our 2006 Chrysler Town and Country, we'll be installing the curt trailer hitch receiver, inch and a quarter, class 2. Part number C12289. You can see it's a very clean installation here. You may note we have this nice little cut out here around the muffler. You don't have to worry about the hitch getting damaged from any exhaust gases or any heat that comes from the exhaust system. A nice gloss black, powder coat finish. This hitch is rated for 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight rating and 350 pounds of max tongue weight rating. You want to consult with your owner's manual of your 2006 Town and Country first and go by whichever numbers is less.

Chrysler Town and Country Questions

  • On some vehicles that the CURT Trailer Hitch, # 13364, is designed for, there can be some components that require the cutout in order for the hitch to fit and/or to manipulate the heat shield behind it. Even though there is a cutout, it does not change the capacity of the hitch which is 400 pounds tongue weigh, 4,000 pounds gross trailer weight. I have included a link to the installation details and a video showing a typical installation. The difference between the CURT hitch...

  • The Tow Ready T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, # 118534, and the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Harness, # C56150, both serve the same functions but are just made by two different companies. Either harness is compatible with your 2011 Chrysler Town and Country but my personal recommendation would be to purchase the Tow Ready brand. This harness provides a higher maximum amperage per circuit. I have attached a video which demonstrates the installation process of the Tow Ready Wiring...

  • We do not carry the Stowaway cargo carriers, so all I was able to go by was photos I managed to find online. From what I could see, it does not look like the carrier swings completely clear of the vehicle on the right side, which would interfere with the tent. Take a look at the diagram and photo I edited for you, which should give you an idea of how things would fit. As you can see in the diagrams, I do not believe that the cargo carrier you mentioned will swing far enough...

  • The only roof bag that has over 20 cubic feet of capacity is Rhino-Rack cargo bag # RRLBXL at 21.2 cubic feet. This is a huge bag at 71 inches long, 43 inches wide, and 12 inches tall so it requires a basket that is at least that size to be able to support the bag. For that you will need the Thule Canyon, # TH859 and the extension, # TH8591, for a total length of 69 inches which will support the bag well. I have linked review videos of the basket and bag for you. Check the...

  • There will have to bee some cutting and splicing to install a brake controller on your 2013 Chrysler Town and Country. Chrysler did not add a factory brake controller harness to the Town and Country, so the brake controller will need to be hardwired. The good news is that you will likely only have to splice one wire into your vehicle wiring. To install a brake controller like the Curt TriFlex, # C51140, that you referenced, you will want the Curt Universal Brake Controller Wiring...

  • Thanks for providing as much information on your setup as you did. That makes my job very easy! So your trailer at it's heaviest would be 3,500 lbs which would mean the tongue weight could range from 350 to 525 lbs. The part # FA92-00-0450 is most likely going to be not rated high enough as you also have to factor the weight of cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle as tongue weight too. The part # FA92-00-0600 would be a better option as it has a tongue weight limit...

  • The inlet/outlet/tubing diameters listed from Magnaflow are OD, outer diameter, not ID, inner diameter. If your tubing is 2.5 OD you will have to butt-weld the muffler to the exhaust tubing, the exhaust pipe will not slide into the muffler. Any muffler shop can do this. The MagnaFlow muffler, part # MF10416 is not designed to be a slip fit muffler. Your exhaust tubing would need to be designed for slip fit mufflers and have band clamps to apply sufficient pressure to seal the...

  • I'm sure you are already aware of this, but the M17 fuse is the fuse for your left tail light and license plate light. Since the fuse keeps blowing when the Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness, # 118534, is installed and it does not blow when the harness is removed, then that is a pretty good indication that the harness is the problem and it should be replaced. There is a good chance that the converter box shorted out causing the fuse to blow. A new wiring harness will most likely...

  • I spoke to my contact at CURT who said some minor trimming of the fascia is required for the hitch installation on your 2012 Town and Country, otherwise the receiver will impinge on the bumper cover. The area that needs to be trimmed is 2-3/4 inch wide by 1/2 inch tall. I have included a diagram of the area that needs to be trimmed as well as a link to installation details. The Hidden Hitch # 87451 is a Class III trailer hitch that will not require trimming. I have...

  • I have done some research, and have found that the tow capacity of your 2005 Chrysler Town & Country is 3700 lbs. You will want to check in your owners manual to confirm the towing capacity. Also, it is important to remember that your towing capacity is limited by the lowest rated component in the towing system, including: vehicle, hitch, ball mount, hitch ball or the capacity of your trailer. To complete your towing system, you might be interested in the following: Trailer...

  • Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75579 will fit all models of the 2014 Chrysler Town and Country. There should be no bumper fascia trimming required. The only trimming mentioned in the instructions, linked to the right, is possibly on a mudflap. I have also included a link to a video showing a typical installation for you. The Curt Hitch part # 13364 that you referenced would most likely require you to trim the fascia so I would not recommend it for you. If you plan on doing some...

  • The wiring harness for your 2008 Chrysler Town and Country is the Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, # 118552. It is specifically designed to fit your vehicle. The Stow-Go seating will not have an effect on the installation or performance of this harness. I have included a link to the installation details and an install video on a similar vehicle for this harness below. The main difference between the 118552 harness and the one you have referenced is that the 118552 harness...

  • First, lets start with a trailer hitch. The most popular hitch for your 2012 Chrysler T and C is Hidden Hitch model # 87451. This is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver. I have linked a video showing a typical installation for you. Since you plan on doing some towing I also recommend the etrailer ball mount kit # EBMK4EL. It comes with a ball mount, interchangeable ball set, a hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. For trailer wiring, in order to add a 7-Way...

  • The best and safest way to carry 4 bikes all on one rack is to install a Class III trailer hitch on your 2008 Chrysler Town and Country, # 87451, and use a hitch mounted bike rack. There are different types of hitch mount bike racks. The most versatile as far as the types of bikes they can carry without the use of an adapter are platform style racks or racks that hold the bikes at the wheels. Our most popular 4-bike platform rack is the Swagman XTC4, # S64665. I have included...

  • To install a 7-way on your 2008 Chrysler Town and Country you will first need to install the Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring # 118552 that you referenced. I attached installation instructions and an installation video for you to check out. If there are not trailer brakes on the trailer you plan on towing you could just use a 4-way to 7-way adapter like a Pollak 7 Pole to 4 Pole Connector Adapter # PK12716 and you would be ready to go. If you have trailer brakes you will...

  • The WeatherTech Side Window Air Deflectors, # WT82476, include deflectors for the front and rear driver's-side and passenger's-side windows of your 2014 Chrysler Town and Country. The deflectors for the front windows are actually longer than those for the rear doors due to the fact that they line more of the window. For the front windows the deflector begins near the side mirror and then runs across the top of the window where as the deflector for the back window just runs...

  • To make sure that you get the correct parts, I would need to know the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the metal of the bearings. There are different 5 lug bolt patterns. Use the FAQ I have linked to measure for bolt pattern so you can get the correct hub and drum assemblies. If you do not have EZ Lube axles, you will not need EZ lube hub and drum assemblies. If you do have L44649 inner and outer bearings and the seal has a 1.987 outer diameter and 1.5 inch...

  • Lets start with the hitch. If you would only be using the hitch as an attachment point for a bike rack, and cannot foresee ever towing a trailer or needing a hitch mounted accessory like a cargo tray like part # 63153, a trunk or hatch mounted rack would be an excellent choice. Since a trunk mount rack is typically not left in place when not being used, you will want to choose the rack that is easiest to install and remove.
