Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Dodge Durango

Today on an 2006 Dodge Durango we are going to install part number 75162 from Draw-Tite. The hitch mounts actually to the bumper structure underneath the bumper cover so what we are going to to do is loosen up the bumper cover to get access to the bumper structure itself. Now I will take a block of wood and we will just put up it in between the bumper structure and the fascia so we will have a little more working room and then we will start working on cutting out the Styrofoam. We will go ahead and put the hitch up into position to give us an idea of where it is going to go.00:27



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2005 Dodge Durango

Today on this 2005 Dodge Durango we will be installing Hidden Hitch part number 87562. This installation will also apply for Draw-Tite part number 75162. We are underneath the vehicle, the first thing you want to do in preparation is to remove the spare tire and get it out of the way. Secondly, we are going to remove the fascia support straps here at the bottom of the bumper which will allow us to have a little more working room around the cross tube of the vehicle we are attaching to. :29



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2000 Dodge Durango

Today we are going to be installing hitch part number V81600 on a 2000 Dodge Durango. The first thing you want to do is to go ahead and remove your spare tire. That will give you a lot more room to get the hitch up into place. We are underneath the vehicle now and we are going to go ahead and point out the mounting location for the trailer hitch. There are three attaching points on the passengers side and there are four on the drivers side. So the first thing we want to do is to go ahead and put all the hardware into place. It will consist of carriage bolts and blocks for most of the locations. On the mounting locations for the vertical tabs on each side there is actually a carriage slot built into the trailer hitch, so that we do not need a block in those locations - we only need a carriage bolt. For the two here on the drivers side I am actually going to use the fish wire that was provided in the installation kit. We are going to feed that up through the hole and then out through the larger hole here in the side of the frame. I am just going to wrap that around our carriage bolt and then pull that down into position. Then another carriage bolt and block here in the crossmember. And then we can go ahead and put the hitch up into position.



Harley-Davidson Trailer Hitch Cover Review

Today we are going to show you the Harley-Davidson Trailer Hitch Cover, and this part number is HDHCY12. This is a high-end trailer hitch cover for your vehicle. It features embedded jewelry-quality cubic zirconium stones, as you can see, outlined around the edge of the emblem. This has been lab tested for weather- and corrosion-resistant construction. The post of this tube cover is made of stainless steel, and the face of it is chrome-plated solid brass. This tube cover also comes with various components to install on your vehicle for a perfect fit. We will get this tube cover ready to install. We will just take it out of the packaging here and flip it around. And these are the bushings. Again, you will use them according to your vehicle. We are going to use the thickest one, and it slides on in place, and then we will use the smallest one on top of it. And it uses any combination as long as it makes a nice, tight fit into your hitch.



Cipa Custom Towing Mirror Review

Today we are going to show you part number 10501 from Cipa. This is Cipas Custom Towing Mirror. These mirrors are custom made for each individual vehicle. In this instance, we actually use a Dodge Durango for our test fit. This mirror extension sits up on the factory mirror. It slides onto the factory mirror just about right here. And what keeps it in place is this wedge, which gets installed between the factory mirror and the extension mirror, right here. Now I will clamp this into place. And what actually tightens everything down is this knob, which goes on the back side of the mirror. It gets screwed in there and applies pressure to the back of the wedge, which in turn clamps the mirror to the factory mirror.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2005 Dodge Durango

Today we are going to do our install on a 2005 Dodge Durango with the tow package from the factory, and we are going to install Part Number 90185, the Tekonsha Prodigy brake controller. And we are also going to install the accompanying brake control harness for the Dodge tow package, and that is Part Number 3020P. To begin our install, we will start with the bracket to hold our brake controller. And that is actually pretty easy. There is already an existing screw underneath the dash, and we are going to use that. We use a torx bit and we are going to go ahead and take that down. Then we run our bracket right back through it, and we are going to overlap so it will sandwich the plastic back up there like it was originally.



Trailer Wiring Harness Adapter Installation - 2001 Dodge Durango

Today, we are going to show you part number 37185 which is an adapter goes from a 4 pole up to a 7 pole and additional 4 pole on the side. What we have here is a Dodge 4X4 Durango. It does not matter what vehicle you are working with as long as you start off with a basic 4 pole flat that is already installed, then you can upgrade from there. A multi-tow adapter does come with its own bracket to mount up with if you do not have an existing bracket, as in our application here, the hitch itself does supply the bracket. For comparison sake, this is the one that comes with the part number, 37189, but we are not going to use this today. We are going to use the factory bracket. I will show you how it mounts up we will mock it up there, and show you what is going on. That will essentially be are finished product when we are done.
