We'll just line it up, push firmly down, work our way over to the other side, and do the same thing. I'd also like to point out that the black color is going to complement most interiors.

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...

  • 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 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...

  • 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, 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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 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...

  • 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...

  • The style of taillights your Journey has won't have any bearing on which hitch will fit. Of the hitches that are available for your Journey, I'd recommend the Curt Class III receiver hitch, part # C13201. The hitch is compatible with Crossroads Journey. The Curt Class III is the lease expensive of the three Class III alternatives, but since Curt makes a high quality product, you'll sacrifice nothing by going with a lower cost hitch. If you'll be using the hitch for towing...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • I have a trailer wiring harness I can recommend for your 2016 Dodge Journey, but it is not the part # 118536. Instead you would want the # 56146KIT as it has been confirmed to fit your vehicle. It is not a plug and play option though and will require some hardwiring.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...
