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...

  • 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.

  • The Hidden Hitch, part # 87487 and Draw-Tite # 75648 are manufactured by the same company so are essentially the same hitch and the measurements are identical. When installed, these hitch have a distance of 1-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the rear bumper. The Curt Hitch, part # C13201, measures 3 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the rear bumper. All 3 hitches have the same towing capacity and very similar installation...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • The Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring # 118536 that you referenced would be the correct wiring harness for your 2013 Dodge Journey. For a hitch I would recommend a Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch # 87487. This is a Class III hitch that will tow your jet ski trailer very easily. 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.

  • The Bulldog # BD500162 landing gear bolts to its brackets, but the brackets would weld to the trailer frame. You should be able to reuse your existing brackets as long as they're not damaged or excessively corroded. The jacks would be the correct replacement for Lippert, Venture, and Atwood landing gear, as well as those from a few other manufacturers. The sure way to tell is that if the distance between the mounting brackets (underside of top bracket to top of lower bracket...

  • Yes, the Thule Passage 3 trunk mount bike rack # TH911XT is a fit for your 2010 Dodge Journey. I have linked a video review showing the rack features. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical mens bike would) then I recommend using bike adapter bar # TH982XT. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level and will provide better ground clearance. I have to use these adapters and without them my wifes bike...

  • I spoke with my contact over at Curt and he said the old hitch 13335 is not a fit for the Crossroads models because of an exhaust bracket interference issue. The redesigned version, # C13201, will fit both the regular and Crossroads models of the 2015 Dodge journey. If you want to go ahead and replace the hitch with the new version then I also recommend 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Before you do anything you will want to consult the owners manual of your 2010 Dodge Nitro to determine what Dodge recommends as towing capacities for your vehicle. I will say that all of the hitches we sell for your vehicle have a max capacity of 4,000 lbs which leads me to believe you would not be able to tow your 4,777 lb Rockwood trailer with your vehicle. With that being said, if you determine that you can pull your trailer you will definitely want a weight distribution...

  • 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...
