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. To take those off, all we're going to do is pull in these tabs, on the zip strips, and they pull right out. Pull those out, and we will take our bike off.



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.

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.



Rhino Rack Roof Rack Review - 2012 Nissan Murano

Today on this 2012 Nissan Murano, we're going to be test-fitting the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Roof Rack. The part numbers are going to RRVA118B, those are going to be your crossbars. Then we have the SX series legs, part number RRSX001. We have the front crossbar installed. Go over a couple features of this. It does have a nice aerodynamic shape so it's going to cut down wind noise and drag. But it also has this vortex strip here at the top which actually can be removed and then you can place things inside that T-track, accessories such as bike racks, cargo baskets, or anything else that has a T-track accessory. Let's go ahead and show how the rear one goes on.



Rhino Rack MountainTrail Roof Bike Racks Review - 2012 Nissan Murano

Today on this 2012 Nissan Murano, we're going to be testing the Rhino Rack Mountain Trail Rooftop Bike Rack, part number RBC035. As you can see, we already have the bike installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and take a closer look and see how it's attached. You're going to have 2 points of contact here. You're going to have a strap here at the rear at the wheel. You're going to have a skewer and fork mount up here at the front holding the bike down so there's going to be no real frame contact here to your bike. Let's go ahead and take the bike off and set it aside.



Kuat Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2014 Nissan Murano

Today in our 2014 Nissan Murano, we're testing the Kuat Transfer. Now the transfer is a three bike platform style rack. This has been designed for use in inch and a quarter or with two inch hitches. Part in the brand is TS03G. This is a great rack. As far as your big platform style racks are concerned, this is really lightweight.



Stromberg Carlson Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2014 Nissan Murano

Today on our 2014 Nissan Murano we're test fitting the Stromberg-Carlson 23 by 60 cargo carrier. Now they designed this cargo carrier for use with 2" hitches, and it has a 500 pound weight capacity. The part number on it is CC-100. Cargo carrier has a few really nice things going for it. The first thing I noticed is how large the openings are in our expanded steel. That's going to give us lots of room for that dirt and debris to fall down and through rather than just sitting up here and building up on top of the carrier. I also like the compactness of the raised rail.



MaxxTow Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2014 Nissan Murano

Today on our 2014 Nissan Murano we've got the 21x48 max tow cargo carrier, and we're test fitting it. This cargo carrier, as you can see is a mainly aluminum construction. It's been designed to carry 500lbs and for use with 2 inch hitches. Part number on it is going to be MT70422. You can see our aluminum slatted floor here, gives great support for those larger items. You've got a raised rail all the way around the outside edge. Let's see how tall that is. It's going to be about 2 inches.



Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2014 Nissan Murano

Today, on our 2014 Nissan Murano, we've got the Curt 20 by 60 folding cargo carrier. We're going to measure and see how it stacks up against the rear of the vehicle. This cargo carrier is designed for use on two inch hitches, and it has a capacity of 500 pounds. Part number on it is C18151. You can see the nice raised rail all the way around the outside. Nice and high at about 5 and 1/2 inches there.

Today on our 2014 Nissan Murano, we've got out our Curt Cargo Carrier and we're test fitting it. This cargo carrier has been designed for use in 2 inch hitches. It's 20 inches by 60 inches and it's going to offer a weight capacity of 500 pounds. Part number on it is C18150. You'll see we've got a raised edge all the way around the carrier here.

It's part number is 13577. Here's what the hitch is going to look like installed. As you can see, we've got our cross-tube that's going to run across the back of the vehicle here right in the center, what we wanted the 2-inch by 2-inch receiver tube opening. Reinforcement collar is going to be around the end of it and it has that flush front look that Curt does really well, gives it a nice clean look.





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 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...

  • 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,...

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • 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....

  • 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 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...

  • 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.

  • I can recommend a hitch, wiring, and additional accessories that you will need to complete your towing setup on your 2009 Nissan Murano, but all of our hitches and wiring are sold separately. The hitch you selected, Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch, part # 87486 does not have hidden wiring included. For a hitch, I would recommend the item you selected, Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch, part # 87486, as it is a Class III Hitch with 2 inch receiver. For wiring, you will need Tow Ready...

  • 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...

  • The Hidden Hitch, # 87486, Reese Hitch, # 44600, and the Draw-Tite Hitch, # 75647, for the 2010 Nissan Murano, are all made by the same parent manufacturer and share the same instructions, see link, so they are identical in every way except badging. The Curt Class III hitch, # 13577, will mount in the same way as the other hitches, but has a round tube design instead of square which some people think is more pleasing to the eye. Other than that this hitch will perform much...

  • 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...

  • There is no need to remove the dash to install a brake controller. You will have to run 3 wires through the firewall and into the engine bay, but you can probably find a grommet that already has wires running into the engine bay to do this. Since the Murano was not built with a factory trailer connector with the provision of a brake circuit, you will need to add one, usually a 7-Way. We have a complete 7-Way and Brake Controller install kit, part # ETBC7. It requires that...

  • Due to the shape of the rear of the Murano, there are not any trunk/hatch mounted bike racks available for that vehicle. You do have a couple of options for carrying bikes on your Murano. You could install a hitch like Hidden Hitch part # 87486 or Curt part # 13577. Both of these will fit your vehicle well and not require any drilling. From there you could choose from a large selection of bike racks for 2 inch hitches. We have basic hanging racks like SportRack part # SR2403...

  • The hitches available for your 2004 Nissan Murano all have a cross tube that runs side to side behind the receiver on the hitch. This tube, either square or round will be visible no matter the choice. For the least visible style of hitch I would choose a round tube style. This construction is less noticeable and blends better with the shadows under the car than the squared edges of the square tube construction hitches. My recommendation, for the least visible hitch, would be...

  • A hitch that is exposed will have the cross tube visible beneath the vehicle. this isn't so much an aesthetic choice as it is a design necessity. Not all vehicles have the space that would allow for the hitch to be concealed (except for the receiver). All of the trailer hitches for the 2015 Nissan Murano, # 87679, # 75952, and # C13205, are going to be visible. But it is not like it is sticking out there for everyone to easily see. It is tucked back under the vehicle some....

  • You will need a receiver hitch to provide an attachment point for the Bike Rack you were looking at. We offer three different hitches that will work great with your Murano, the Curt Class III Receiver Hitch, part # 13577 the Hidden Hitch Class III, part # 87486 and the Draw-Tite Class III part # 75647. The Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite models would be a good choice for you if you prefer the hitch to be partially concealed by the rear bumper structure of the vehicle. The square...

  • 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...

  • For your 2015 Nissan Murano you will need the Curt Hitch part # C13205 as it has been confirmed as a fit for your vehicle. The # 13577 does not fit the 2015 models so there is no way to use it on your new Murano. 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....
