  • 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 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...

  • 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...

  • As long as the trailer is towing level and straight and you are not having problems with high winds or large vehicles passing on the highway causing sway there is most likely no need for weight distribution and/or sway control. If you find that the back of the truck is sagging when the truck and trailer are fully loaded and ready to tow, or if, when towing, large trucks or high winds cause the trailer to sway then weight distribution with sway control would be a good choice...

  • 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...

  • Both wiring harnesses for the 2012 Chrysler Town and Country, see link, are T-connectors but also need power from the vehicle battery in order to power the trailer lights. The T-connections provide the signals that tell the converter what to do. This method protects the electrical system on your van. Because these harnesses require a battery connection, you will need to disconnect the negative cable when wiring in the harness. Having the battery disconnected will essentially...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Either the Hopkins Plug-N-Tow wiring harness, part # 42235 or the Tow Ready Wiring Harness, part # 118300 would work great with your 2006 Chrysler Town and Country with the stow-and-go seats. Both wiring harnesses attach inline with the existing harness behind the tail light assemblies. I will link you to the installation instructions. You can find the link below.

  • 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...

  • Firestone Coil-Rite Rear Axle Air Helper Springs, part # F4169, do use pressure-fit air hose connections as you noted. I spoke to a technician at Firestone about the concern of the air lines staying place. He confirmed that the fittings used are barbed and that with the moderate maximum pressure of this system, 35 psi, that it is very unlikely for an air hose to come loose from the bag or the inflation fitting. The other part you reviewed, Air Lift AirLift 1000 Air Helper...

  • The kayak saddles from Thule come in sets of two, a left and right. You would need a total of 4, front left and right, rear left and right. The Thule Hydro Glide Saddles, part # TH875XT, are a bit smaller and have a friction free surface. What you would do is put one set of Hydro Glides at the rear rack and a set of Set-To-Gos at the front. This way if you are out kayaking by yourself, you can load the kayak easier by sliding the kayak along the Hydro Glide saddles. If...

  • The two choices that I can recommend that will work on your vehicle are the Timbren # TDVR05096 or the Firestone # F8627. The main difference between them is the feel of the ride. The Timbren is a good, quality product that a lot of truck owners, and some minivan owners have installed. This suspension system creates a level, smooth ride when hauling heavy loads. The Timberns are not adjustable, they reduce the sag when either the trailer is mounted. The Firestone Work-Rite...

  • 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...

  • According to my Thule representative, the Venture is a rack Thule markets exclusively to one particular sporting goods retailer. The rack is compatible with your 2013 Town and Country. Incidentally, other than the color of the tubing, the Venture is identical to the Thule Passage # TH911XT that we offer at a lower price. To carry womens bikes or bikes with sharply angled top tubes or step-through frames, using a frame adapter like part # TH982XT is recommended. The adapter...

  • 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...

  • Both the T2, # TH916XTR and Saris Freedom SuperClamp, # SA4025, have a 60 pound per bike capacity. That leaves little wiggle room before you would go over the capacity. Some mud on the tires or added accessories to the bike could push it over 60 pounds. If you do think this will be an issue then I would go with the T2 because the way that it tilts and folds is much easier compared to the Freedom SuperClamp. The T2 has a lever for these feature whereas the SuperClamp actually...

  • In short, no; adding a transmission cooler and distributing trailer weight does not constitute a tow package. Transmission coolers do not add to the tow capacity of the vehicle. They can reduce wear and tear on transmissions used for towing by keeping heat levels down, but they do not make the transmission capable of pulling more weight. Tow packages often include things like a heavier suspension, integrated hitch, wiring, stronger transmission, stronger/braced frames, and...
