Stromberg Carlson Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2010 Nissan Murano

Today on our 2010 Nissan Murano, we'll be doing a test fit of the Strongberg Carlson Cargo Carrier. That's part number CC-100. I've already got it loaded up on the Murano just to give you a good idea of what it's going to look like. As you can see, it's a sizable cargo carrier. We've got plenty of spots along the edges to tie down our cargo. We have a nice mesh floor, so it's going to be easy clean. Dirt and debris can just fall right through.



Yakima Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2010 Nissan Murano

Today, on our 2010 Nissan Murano, we'll be taking a look at the Yakima LiteRider 2 Bike Rack. We've already got a bike mounted up on the rack. Just a couple quick features. We've got the zip strips to keep in place in 3 locations. 2 up top on the frame and then 1 down here on the other part of the frame.

Thule Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2010 Nissan Murano

Today on our 2010 Nissan Murano we'll be doing a test fit of the Thule T2 Pro Platform Style 2 Bike Rack. That's part number TH9034. I've already got it loaded up on the Murano just to give you a good idea of what it looks like and how it's going to secure our 2 bikes. It actually secures our bike in 2 spots. We have this rear strap going over our rear wheel and then at the front we've got a large wheel hook going over the front tire putting down pressure into the wheel cradle. All in all there is no frame contact with this bike rack. One of the best features about this bike rack is it has the ability to tilt away with both bikes loaded so we can gain access to our rear hatch.



Thule Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2010 Nissan Murano

Today on our 2010 Nissan Mirano, we're going to be taking a look at the Thule Vertex 4-bike rack, part number TH9029XT. On this bike rack, it has three straps that secure the bike. It's got the two up top and then the anti-sway strap down here. We're going to go ahead take the bike off so we can look at a few other features on this rack. Now, with the bike out of the way, let's get a measurement to see how much this adds total to the rear of the vehicle. It looks like it adds about 34 1/2 inches total.



Thule Hitching-Post-Pro Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2010 Nissan Murano

Today on our 2010 Nissan Murano, we'll be doing a test fit of the Thule Hitching Post Pro 4 Bike Rack. That's part number TH934XTR. I've already got it loaded up on the Murano just to give you a good idea of what it looks like and how it secures our 4 bikes. It actually secures our bikes in 3 spots. We have 2 straps for our top 2 here and then for our seat post tube we have this anti-sway strap. That's going to help prevent a lot of the sway in the bike while we're out on the road excuse me, as well as prevent bike to bike contact and bike to vehicle contact.



Thule Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2010 Nissan Murano

Today on our 2010 Nissan Murano we'll be taking a look at the Thule Roadway 2 Bike Rack, part number TH912XTR. With the bike on here you can say that it's held down in 3 spots by these straps. You got the 2 up top and then 1 anti-sway down here. We're going to go ahead and take the bike off, and now with the bike out of the way we will replace our straps and then we'll take a look at what else this bad guy can do. This one, if you pull this gray lever right here it will fold it down so that if you're going into your garage or your anywhere that is tight, parking spaces, that gives you a little bit better fit. Now with these arms folded down see how far it sticks out from the rear, it adds about 11-1/2 total inches to it. With the arms up it adds about 24-1/2 inches to the total length of the vehicle. Now once nice feature about this is that if with it down you can actually pull this gray lever down here and tilt it away from the vehicle to get better access to your cargo area.

Its dimensions are 48 x 21, and it also has a 500 pound weight capacity. Let's take a few measurements.

Inno Roof Rack Review - 2012 Nissan Murano

Today on this 2012 Nissan Murano we're going to be test fitting the Inno Roof Rack, part numbers INXB108, which there is going to be two of those, that's going to be the cross bar. Then part number INXS100, that's going to be the Inno Flush Feet. We have the first one installed here. I'm just going to point out a couple of features about this. This has a nice aerodynamic shape which will cut down on wind noise and drag while your driving. It has this nice flush look on your roof rack, with these end caps here that do lock.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2012 Nissan Murano

Today on our 2012 Nissan Murano, we'll be taking a look at and installing the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector, Part Number 55571. Now, our 4-pole wires are going to be great for anybody that's looking to get some lights to their trailer. This will have your tail lights or running lights, your left turn signal, your right turn signal, and your brake lights. This will be good for any trailer that your vehicle can pull unless it has a different wiring adapter. When you're ready to use it, you'll simply run it out the back, go ahead and pull it out of our stowed area in the spare tire compartment, and out the back when we're ready to use it. You'll have plenty to hook it up to your trailer wherever that connection may be, and we'll close down the hatch over the top. This weatherstripping is going to be thick enough and it won't damage it.





Nissan Murano Questions

  • As long as the towing capacity of the vehicle is not exceeded and the hitch is installed properly, according to the hitch manufacturers instructions, there should be no adverse warranty implications from installing a hitch. The # 87486 Class III hitch you mentioned is manufactured by Hidden Hitch, a very respected hitch manufacturer. I have provided you with a side-by-side photo showing both the Curt # 13577 and the Hidden Hitch model installed on a 2012 Murano. As you can...

  • The Hidden Hitch # 87679 and Draw-Tite # 75952 hitches are manufactured by the same parent company, Cequent Performance Products, other than the name on the sticker, the hitches are identical. Same weight rating, appearance, build quality and installation procedure. The Curt # C13205 has a warranty stipulation that requires a stabilizing strap like # 18050 be used for non-trailer loads (like bike racks and cargo carriers.) Not only is this an extra expense, but not all vehicles...

  • The recommended schedule to grease your wheel bearings is every 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first. You can use the red grease # L11390 for trailer wheel bearings if you wanted. You can also use wheel bearing grease # L11465 which is designed for use on trailer running gear, including wheel bearings. It also has a slightly higher temperature rating, 520 degrees, compared to 510 degrees for the red grease. When adding new grease you will need to make sure...

  • The Hidden Hitch Class III 2 Inch Hitch, part # 87486, for your 2009 Nissan Murano comes with four M12 x 1.25 x 30mm hex bolts and one M10 x 1.25 x 30mm hex bolt. The torque on the M12 bolts is 76 foot lbs and the torque on the M10 bolt is 42 foot lbs. The smaller M10 bolt is used on the drivers side of the hitch in the rear mounting hole. I am including the installation instructions that will list the torque specifications for the Hidden Hitch.

  • Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 75952 is one of the hitches that will fit your 2015 Nissan Murano. When installed we found that the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole back to clear the rear of the vehicle is 4-1/4 inches, see video link. The Kuat NV # NV22G measures 7 inches from the pin hole to the nearest part of the rack when folded up so it will clear the rear of the Murano easily. Given that there is ample clearance with this rack I recommend it. The Sherpa...

  • Curt, the manufacturer, has determined that some of their hitches should be used with stabilization strap # 18050 when using a bike rack or cargo carrier. This is a requirement from Curt for their warranty. Like you said Hidden Hitch does not have this requirement though you could still use the strap if you wanted. The strap relieves some of the stress on the hitch. If you want to avoid using the strap then I recommend going with Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 87679. I have linked...

  • A trailer hitch and the vehicle it is installed on can have different towing capacities. Hidden Hitch designed and tested the part # 87679 that you referenced and found that it had a capacity of 4,000 lbs total trailer weight and 600 lbs tongue weight. That is just for the hitch by itself. Now Nissan came up with their own towing capacity for the 2015 Nissan Murano that happens to be lower than the hitch. When determining the overall towing capacity of a setup the lowest rated...

  • I went out to our warehouse to measure the SportRack Cargo Bag # SR8120. I found the main compartment to measure approximately 41 inches long x 19 inches wide x 16 inches tall. I have attached a diagram to show this measurement. Overall the bag measures 60 inches long x 19 inches wide x 16 inches tall and can hold up to 10 cubic feet of cargo.

  • The Ball Mount Class III, # 80232, does not reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch. The tongue weight capacity of just this ball mount is 600 pounds. But you need to stay within the limits of your hitch and, ultimately, your vehicle. Check your owners manual to find the towing specifications of your 2009 Nissan Murano.

  • Yes we do. But first you will need to install a hitch on your 2015 Nissan Murano. For that you would want the Hidden Hitch part # 87679. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well. For a bike rack then you would want the Thule Vertex Swing part # TH9031XT as this rack can swing out and away from the rear of a vehicle with bikes loaded to give you complete rear cargo area access. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • There will be no issues installing a controller in your vehicle as long as you install it properly. You will need to start with a 4-way (if you do not have one). For that you would want the # 55571 for if you have a CrossCabriolet or part # 119147KIT for if you do not. From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC7. I attached installation...

  • The # 56146 would work, however I would recommend the kit, which is part` # 51646KIT. The kit includes the necessary fused power wire that needs to be ran to the battery, as well as a circuit tester and hardware. If it were my vehicle, I'd use the Tow Ready # 118572. Granted it's more expensive, but the 118572 uses connectors that plug inline with the junction between the taillight assemblies and the wiring harnesses feeding the taillights. You'd still need to run a power wire...

  • Pretty much any platform style bike rack that folds up is going to block a back up camera. But there might be a model that might work for you. Take a look at the Saris Thelma, # SA4229B. This rack is compact to start with so the likelihood of it blocking a back up camera is minimal. Take a look at the video I have linked for this bike rack. I don't think the Thule T2 is going to be a good option. It is a large rack with a lot of material that could block the back up camera....

  • Curt recommends the stabilizer strap with non-supported loads like bike racks to help support the hitch when going over bumps to prevent some of the vertical shock from being transferred to the hitch. Curt does this as a precaution, it's not that Draw Tite or Hidden Hitch are stronger. Both hitch brands make outstanding hitches that are typically stronger than what they are rated for. I would say that Curt just happens to approach the idea of a bike rack/cargo carrier being...

  • First, I would say if there is any question on the road worthiness of the trailer, take the steps to correct it. Better safe than sorry. Some trailers have wheels that are hub-centric, the wheel is centered on the hub using the center pilot holes. Other trailers have wheels that are lug-centric, the wheel is centered on when you tighten down the lug nuts. To determine which one you have on your trailer, take a look at how the wheel attaches to the hub. If it uses wheel bolts,...

  • We carry numerous transmission coolers that are recommended for your 1994 Chevy C/K 1500. The determining factor on which is the best for your particular truck is the size engine it has and how much space there is to mount it in the location you want. I have included a link to the available coolers below. Each cooler comes with the necessary fittings for installation. We also carry various other fittings separately, should you need additional parts when installing the cooler....

  • To install this Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring # 55571 on your 2005 Nissan Murano you will not need to run a wire up to the engine compartment. All the wires that you will need to connect will be at the rear of your vehicle. Check out the installation instructions and the installation video I attached to see how it will all come together.

  • The Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness, part # C56105, is a wiring harness for a 2006 to 2007 Nissan Murano. If you do not have a 4-Pole flat connector on your Murano this harness will give you a 4-Pole flat trailer connector on the back of your Murano. If you already have a 4-Pole on your vehicle you will not need this part and can skip the next paragraph. The Curt wiring harness will plug into existing sockets on the vehicles wiring harness, located under the trunk liner...

  • For the interior lights there is usually a switch that will let you select what the light does including on with doors open, on with the button pushed only, or completely off. That would take care of that light. The dash lights are a different story. Short of pulling the fuse(s) related to the lights or disconnecting the battery there really isn't an easy way to shut them off.

  • The only hitch I can recommend for your 2014 Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet is the Curt Hitch part # 13577 at this time it is the only hitch we carry that is confirmed to fit the Cross Cabriolet model Muranos. I know its not as aesthetically appealing as you want, but it would do an excellent job towing your jet ski and would be less visible than you would think as most would not notice it there. We've installed this hitch a few times on Muranos and found the installation process...
