Best 2016 Dodge Journey Hitch Options

Today we'll be taking a look at the best four hitch options available for our 2016 Dodge Journey. Our top hitch that we have here is going to be our Curt Custom Fit Class 3 trailer hitch receiver, part number C13201. Followed by our other class 3, the Hidden Hitch Custom Fit class 3 trailer hitch receiver, part number 87487. The third one down here is going to be our Draw-Tite Max Frame Custom Fit class 3 trailer hitch receiver, part number 75648. Finally down here on the bottom, we're going to have our only class 2 in the match-up here in review, which is going to be the Curt Custom Fit class 2 trailer hitch receiver, part number C12134. Keep in mind with all four of our receiver hitches that we have here, the class 3's are generally going to be your better way to go as far as applications and what you'd like to put in them. Just because there's going to be a lot more things available for that 2" by 2" receiver tube over the top of the 1" by 1" class 2. We'll go ahead and compare these class 3's that we have up here on top. You can see that that Curt is going to have that nice swoop in it rather than your Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch, where they're going to be more of a straight line and kind of a shallow V.



Best 2015 Dodge Journey Hitch Options

Today we'll be taking a look at the best four hitch options available for our 2015 Dodge Journey. Our top hitch that we have here is going to be our CURT custom fit class three trailer hitch receiver, part number C13201, followed by our other class three, the Hidden Hitch custom fit class three trailer hitch receiver, part number 87487.

Finally down here on the bottom we're going to have our only class two in the match up here and review, which is going to be the CURT custom fit class two trailer hitch receiver, part number C12134. Now keep in mind with all four of our receiver hitches that we have here, the class threes are generally going to be your better way to go as far as applications and what you would like to put in them just because there's going to be a lot more things available for that 2" by 2" receiver tube over the top of the 1-1/4" by 1-1/4" class two. We'll go ahead and compare these class threes that we have up here on top. You can see that that CURT is going to have that nice swoop in it rather than your Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch where they're going to be more of a straight line and a shallow V. Now another significant difference in the three is going to be that the Hidden Hitch and the Draw-Tite both have your bracket welded onto it to attach your seven-pole or four-pole wiring harnesses.

WeatherTech 2nd Row Rear Floor Mat Review - 2012 Dodge Journey

Today on our 2012 Dodge Journey, we're going to review and install the Weathertech custom auto floor liner for the second row, part number WT442242, black in color. This application is also available in grey, part number WT462242, or tan, part number WT452242. Starting in the second row, let's go ahead and remove old or manufacturer's floor mats. With the driver's side out of the way, we'll go ahead and do the passenger's side. As we're removing the passenger's side we can notice all the dirt and debris that falls off around the liner, here underneath the seat and underneath our floor mats. However, with the new Weathertech custom fit floor liners, we're not going to have that problem.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 Dodge Journey - Curt

Today on our 2012 Dodge Journey we're going to review and install the CURT class two 1-1/4" receiver tube hitch, part number C12134. Here's what our hitch is going to look like once installed. As you can see, hangs down below the rear fascia. It's got a nice round crosstube design and a fully welded steel construction, which chain hold downs on either side of our receiver tube. Going all the way through our receiver tube is also a pre-drilled 1/2" hole for your hitch pin. Then we've got a 1-1/4" by 1-1/4" receiver tube for this class two hitch.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 Dodge Journey - Curt

Today on our 2012 Dodge Journey we're going to review and install the CURT class three 2" receiver tube hitch, part number C13201. Here's what our hitch is going to look like once installed. As you can see, not a lot of the hitch is hidden but it is tucked up under the vehicle nicely. We've got a round crosstube that goes into our fully welded constructed receiver tube. The whole thing has a nice black powder-coated finish so it hides with the underbody of the vehicle. We've got our chain hold down on either side of the 2" by 2" receiver tube.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2013 Dodge Journey - Curt

Today on our 2013 Dodge Journey we're going to take a look at and then show you how to install the CURT custom fit class three 2" trailer hitch receiver, part number C13201. As you can see, our CURT custom fit hitch is going to have a nice look to it. All of our attachment hardware, all of the connections are up here out of the way where we can't see them. We're just going to have the drop bar that comes down and around, tucks back in over here on this same side. No modifications of the vehicle that are really required. As you can see, it's going to go right underneath the spare tire here so we're not going to have to worry about any kind of interference there. The end of the tube is just inside the outer edge of the bumper; it sits in about a 1/4" or so so it's not hanging out so far to where you might hit your leg or bumps might on it, and it's not tucked in so far where it really eliminates a lot of options as far as bike rack's or carriers might be concerned.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2013 Dodge Journey - Curt

Today, we're going to be installing and taking a look at a CURT custom-fit trailer hitch receiver. It's a Class 2 with an inch and a quarter opening. Part number is C12134. Here, you can see the CURT inch and a quarter Class 2 hitch in place. It's going to drop down nicely. It's going to go right underneath your spare tire, as you can see here, so we're not going to have any interference with that.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2013 Dodge Journey

Today on our 2013 Dodge Journey, we'll be installing the Tow Ready T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, part number 118536. All right. Now, we're here at the rear of the vehicle. We've already raised the rear hatch up. We're going to need to pull out both of the rear taillight assemblies. In order to do that, we'll need to remove a push pin here and a push fastener here.



Husky Liners Floor Mat Review - 2012 Dodge Journey

Today on our 2012 Dodge Journey we're going to be doing a test fit of the Husky Liner Custom Classic Auto Floor Liner for the second row and in the black color. Part number HL60031. The first step we'll need to remove any existing floor liner or mat that may already be in the vehicle. Next we'll go ahead and take our new Husky Liner, slide it into place. Now you'll notice that this liner is a once-piece liner so it does cover the center hump section of the vehicle, giving you nice coverage there as well. On each side behind the driver and the passenger side we have a raised lip that goes around the liner. This is designed to help keep dirt and debris on the liner and off of your floor.





Dodge Journey Questions

  • If Dodge has rated your 2010 Journey for 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight, that is the maximum the vehicle can tow, even if a trailer hitch is rated higher. The limiting factor is the component with the lowest capacity, which is the rating you need to go by. Adding weight distribution will not increase the towing capacity of the vehicle. The towing capacity of the vehicle remains static at 3,500 pounds. To complete your towing setup you may need the following: Ball Mount...

  • From the research I did, the 4 cylinder model 2013 Dodge Journeys have a max towing capacity of 1,000 lbs. You will want to confirm this with your owners manual or local Dodge dealer. Based on that it doesn't look like you have enough capacity to tow your boat and trailer.

  • I checked with Hidden Hitch and the part # 87487 that you referenced will fit your Dodge Journey Crossroads. For trailer wiring you would want the Tow Ready wiring harness part # 118567.

  • When installing a 4 and 7 Way Installation Kit, # ETBC7, it bypasses any factory installed system because it is a hardwire application so it will not be connected to the sway control components on your 2010 Dodge Journey. If you do not already have a 4-Way trailer wiring harness installed, you will need to add one before installing the EBTC7 kit. You will need Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, # 118495. I have included a link to the installation details for reference. While...

  • On a 2011 Dodge Journey the hitch wiring does not run to the rear of the vehicle, and the vehicles wiring is not designed to handle the draw of the trailer lights when using a T-One wiring harness that will just plug into the vehicles taillights. You will need a wiring harness that will use a powered converter and have a separate power wire that runs directly to the vehicles battery. The correct wiring harness for the 2011 Dodge Journey with LED lights is the Tow Ready Wiring...

  • Yes, you will need replacement mounting hardware # TH04851 for your Sears X Cargo cargo box. This kit includes plates with holes spacing of 2 inches and other configurations. But they are not u-bolts. They actually are T-bolts that make installation a little easier than a u-bolt connections.

  • I spoke with my contact at Tow Ready and verified that your 2012 Dodge Journey SXT will not have to be reprogrammed if you install the Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness, # 118536. This wiring harness will use the factory connectors at the back of each tail light assembly to provide signals to the 4-way connector. This wiring harness will only fit the 2012 Dodge Journey and it will not fit the 2009 to 2011 Journeys. I know some Dodge vehicles will come with a factory trailer connector...

  • The Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring # 118536 that you referenced would be the correct wiring harness for your 2013 Dodge Journey.

I attached installation instructions and an installation video for you to check out. You may be interested in the etrailer.com Ball Mounts # 989900 to complete your towing setup.

  • Finding the stop light wire to connect to a brake controller can be tricky depending on the vehicle. Especially if there is very little space in which to work. You will start by locating the brake light switch under the dash and above the brake pedal. There should be several wires running to it. I have included a picture that shows what it might look like. Using a circuit tester, like the Quickee Circuit Tester, # 3808, test each wire until you find the one that has a signal...

  • The measurement is from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 87487. To the bottom, outside of the receiver, it is 11-3/8 inches.

  • The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4 Pole Trailer Connector, # 118495, is the correct harness for a 2010 Dodge Journey. I have included a link to the installation details below. The 2010 model does not require the use of a powered converter as it uses a 2 wire system. The T-One Connector with Upgraded Circuit Protected ModuLite, # 118474, is for a 2009 model. It includes a powered converter that converts the 3 wire system to a 2 wire system used on trailers.

  • It looks like on the 2013 Dodge Journey the reverse lights are on the rear hatch and possibly also on the body structure with some of the other lights. If there are reverse lights on the body structure then you will need to access the tail light wiring and find the wire that goes to the reverse light bulb and tap into it there. If the reverse lights are only on the light cluster in the hatch then there should be a wiring harness at the top of the hatch going into the vehicle...

  • Since your 2013 Dodge Journey has LED tail lights you will want to use trailer wiring harness # 118536. The wiring harness that you referenced, # 118495, only fits the 2010 Dodge Journey and will not fit a 2013. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. To answer your other question, wiring harness # C56154 installs and works the same way as # 118536. It is just a different manufacturer, Curt. If given the choice I would go with Tow Ready harness # 118536...

  • The 2013 Dodge Journey is available with LED tail lights or regular incandescent tail lights. If your Journey has incandescent lights then you can use Curt trailer wiring harness # C56109.

  • Out of the spare tire carriers we have, I am sure that we will be able to find one that will hold the spare tires on your trailer. I have incldued a link to all of the options for you to view. Besides the space where you can mount a spare tire carrier or carriers, you will also need to make sure that the wheels have a compatible bolt pattern. For example, the Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier, # DL22120, is designed for 9 to 14 inch wheels with 4 or 5 lugs, bolt circles up...
