We've got three of our four mounts in place. Go ahead and show you how this last one goes on. Now when you buy this it comes with a bunch of different U bolt sizes. Mostly the depth is different, because this is shallower than some of the other cross bars that we have.

Today on our 2012 Dodge Journey we have our Rolla 00:00:03 Canyon Rooftop Bike Carrier, part number 59404. As you can see, we have it set up for you. We've got two things holding in place, the bike in place that is. We have our fork mount and we have our hook and loop strap on our back tire. To take this off, we'll take our hook and loop strap off first. We'll hold on to our bike, we'll pull our locking lever down and we'll loosen our nut if we have to. Pull this down a little bit more. So this bike carrier comes with a couple bolts.



Rola Roof Rack Review - 2012 Dodge Journey

Today, on our 2012 Dodge Journey, we have our Rola Sports Series Roof Rack, part #59899. We already have our front one installed all the way forward. As you can see, it's as forward as it gets.

Here we have our foot, we'll just need to make sure our grooves are all lined up and go ahead and slide it on, and then put our end cap on. Now when we measure our distance, we want to measure from the center of our post to the center of our post, and we want to have about 27-31 inches between. Same on both sides, whatever your measurement is.

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

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.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2011 Dodge Journey

Today on our 2011 Dodge Journey, we'll be installing the Tow Ready T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, part number 118536. To begin our install we'll first go ahead and open up the rear cargo hatch. Then we'll remove the two fasteners that secure the taillight housing on the driver's side. These are pushpin fasteners so we'll use a flat blade screwdriver to pry the center out and then remove the entire fastener. Next we'll go ahead and gently pull backwards on the taillight assembly unlocking the two fasteners underneath, be careful as you remove the taillight assembly that you don't break the alignment tabs underneath. We'll go ahead and repeat this same process for the opposite side.

We'll put the bolt through the connector and then through the bracket. To secure it on the backside, we'll use the flat washer, split lock washer, and nut. We're going to repeat the same process for the other 3 fasteners.

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...

  • You will have to use the correct wiring harness for your 2015 Dodge Journey based on the taillight style you have. There is no overlap between the two harnesses since they both use different style connectors. The easiest way to tell if you have LED lights or incandescent is to watch the assembly illuminate. If the lights look like they glow brighter as they transition to being on then you have incandescents. If they come on so quickly that you can't see any transition between...

  • The Hidden Hitch 2-inch Class III trailer hitch # 87487 will indeed fit your 2015 Dodge Journey Crossroads. This hitch fits models with either LED or standard incandescent taillight bulbs. All required installation hardware is included with the hitch and it will install without drilling. I have linked both the written instructions as well as a video for your review. Also linked are two helpful articles concerning hitch installation. If you intend to pull a trailer you'll...

  • We have everything you will need. First let's start with a hitch, for that I would recommend the Curt Trailer hitch part # C13201 that you said you were interested in. This is a Class III hitch with a 2 inch opening that would have more than enough capacity for your trailer. Now for wiring you will want to start with a 4-way, for that you would need the Trailer Wiring Kit from Curt part # C56109. This will give you a 4-way. Now since you need to install a brake controller since...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Both companies are highly reputable and make a quality product. Either harness you referenced would work just fine for you, but I would personally choose the Tow Ready # 118536 as it has a higher amperage rating than the Curt model. Tow Ready has also been around longer, for these reasons I would give their product the edge. I have linked you to the installation details for both the Tow Ready and the Curt harness.

  • There are several chains options for the 255/55-19 tire size on your 2011 Dodge Journey. Finding the right set for your needs depends on a few factors. First, you will want to check the owners manual to see if there are any restrictions or recommendations on the use of chains. Next you have to determine how often you will need to use the chains. If you need to have some just in case or because you will be traveling in an area where they are required by law (infrequent use)...

  • 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...

  • We have 11 wheels that are 16x6 inches and have the 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern. I have included a link to them to the right. If none of these wheels match, feel free to email me some pictures and I can determine if it is something that we can add to our site so it can be ordered.

  • 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.

  • 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 correct wiring harness for the 2011 Dodge Journey is the Tow Ready Wiring Harness, part # 118536. This harness is needed because the 2011 model uses LED tail lights. This harness is a universal application, so I have linked the installation instructions below, and I will also describe how to wire the harness to your vehicle. To install the hardwire kit on your vehicle, you will need to use the included circuit tester to locate the brake light circuit behind the vehicle...

  • For your 2016 Dodge Journey the 2 inch trailer hitch I would recommend is the Draw Tite hitch part # 75648 that is a confirmed fit for your vehicle. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with...

  • 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. For ball mounts I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a carrying bag.

  • The hitches available for your 2013 Journey would install so the receiver tube sits just below the rear bumper, as you can see in the provided photo. As you can see in the linked instructions and install video, no cutting or trimming of the bumper or bumper fascia is needed. I'd recommend going with the Hidden Hitch Class III hitch, part # 87487. Of the Class III hitches available, the Hidden Hitch is the most reasonably priced. Because all the available hitches are of high...

  • We have not had a vehicle here to allow us to produce an installation video for this particular wiring harness, Curt # C56154, in the 2013 Dodge Journey. However, since this is a plug-in harness its installation will be quite similar to that of many other comparable products from Curt and other brands. Please note that this harness works only with vehicles that have LED-type tail lights. It will not work with vehicles that have incandescent lights. Installation requires temporary...

  • If you are installing a 5-, 6-, or 7-Way trailer connector (or a back up camera) on your 2014 Dodge Journey and the trailer either has an electric reverse lock out or reverse lights then the connection to the reverse light circuit on the vehicle will be necessary. But if you are installing a 4-Way or the trailer does not have an electric reverse lockout or backup lights (or you are not installing a camera) then the connection to the reverse light circuit on the vehicle is not...

  • Since your 2011 Dodge Journey already has a 4-Way flat trailer connector all you will need to add a brake controller is the brake controller itself and an installation kit that includes a 7-Way trailer connector. There isn't a plug and play type of harness for the 2011 Dodge Journey because the vehicle isn't set up for it even if it has the factory tow package. This means there is a little hardwiring required. For a brake controller I recommend the P2, # 90885, because it's...
