Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2015 Dodge Durango - Hidden Hitch

Today on our 2015 Dodge Durango we're going to take a look at then show you how to install the Hidden Hitch Custom Fit Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver. This offers a two inch opening, its part number is 87608. Here's what the hitch looks like when installed. As you can see it goes right below the bumper here as opposed to some of that would sit up a little bit higher behind our cover. Got nice safety chain connection points on each side we should be able to get just about any kind of safety chain connected. This is going to give us a good very good tow rating. We've got a six hundred pound ton weight capacity. That's the maximum amount of force we can put downward here.

A six thousand pound gross trailer weight capacity so that's going to be the weight of our trailer and everything that we've got loaded up. Now if we go into a weight distribution set up, our ton weight going to go up to seven hundred fifty, the gross trailer weight going to go up to seventy five hundred but of course you want to look into the manual of the Durango make sure it's capable following those loads. If not just go off of whichever those numbers are the lowest. Got a nice bracket. It's going to bend welded here on the side. This allows us three different mounting holes so we can put whether we're using the four hole or the seven hole wiring.

We should be able to bolt it right up there. As you can see we've got our standard five eighth's inch pin hole here at the rear. This is going to work great, it's open on each side for just about any of the five eighth's accessories or the Class III rated accessory should go through there and be able to be used no problem. Then our smaller hitch pin hole here in the front that's going to be for the J Pin Stabilization System. This is a really easy hitch to install.

We're going to use existing bolts that are already in the frame, back them out, put the hitch in and put our bolts back in. Now a few measurements that would be helpful in selecting our ball mount, bike rack or even hitch cargo carrier will be from the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube opening, we've got about fourteen inches. Then from the center of our hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of our bumper it's about two. We're going to begin our installation we're going to open our cover and take out any floor coverings that we might have. We want to remove the little cap here that's going to give us access to our spare tire lowering little tab that sticks up. We'll put our tire tool down on it and then start lowering that down. Really we're just going to get it down far enough to give us a little bit of room to work.

Now is take out the two bolts located here in the passenger side and also in the same spot on the driver side. Now let's raise our hitch up into position. We're going to use the bolts we just removed to mount it into its location. We'll get one started on each side and we use that to kind of hold it up and then we get our other two started. Now we'll snug those down. Now we can torque them to the specifications that we'll find in our instructions. Our hitch is nice and secure now. Let's just raise our spare tire back up into position. Put our cap back in place and replace our floor coverings back here. That's all there is to it. With our spare back in place that's going to complete today's installation of the Hidden Hitch Custom Fit Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver. Part number 87608 on our 2015 Dodge Durango.

Hitch receiver was very straight forward and easy to install. As easy as lowering the spare tire, removing 4 bolts and re-installing the 4 bolts with the hitch in place. The only issue that I had was installing this on my own as the hitch has a little weight on it and holding it in place while aligning the holes and screwing in the bolts was a challenge. I suggest if you have a buddy available to use their extra hands. I put this hitch to immediate use and was not disappointed! The hitch receiver is a little low so I suggest a ball mount with a 4 inch drop and mount the ball so that the mount raises it up for easier use of your trailer. All in all I am very happy with this purchase and suggest to everyone in the market for one! 79890

Hitch was an exact fit on a 2015 Dodge Durango Limited. Hitch took about 20 min to install. Very easy as long as you have the right size socket or wrench for the car. 192967

Extremely easy to mount on the Durango, took two of us only minutes in the driveway. The chain attachment loops are big and easy to fit the chain hook through. At first it looked like the hitch may be low and hit the pavement, but even through the huge drainage swales we have around here, the hitch never touched the ground. The box was all beat up and the ends of the hitch had minor scratches, but the hitch is so heavy duty it did not change shape. Use with the ball mount upside down. Requires a torque wrench for proper install. 135625

2013 Dodge Durango Just like the description states, it is a straight bolt on installation. Very simple. 134263

This is my second R/T Durango and second hitch and wiring I have purchased from etrailer. Installation was as simple as it gets. The Curt wiring harness plugs right into the factory wiring. I know the description says the car has to have the factory tow package bit it doesn't. All you need to do is have your dealer flash the computer to activate the existing wiring. Awesome 204146

Ordered hitch and harness. I was originally told it was on backorder, but the products were received close to the original expected delivery date. Hitch worked great. Harness ordered for 2013 Durango did not quite fit - I still need to splice tghe wire to the right turn signal. But I am pleased with the service and the price, and satisfied with the products. 137871

This product is awesome! It took my husband less than an hour to attach the hitch and plug in the trailer lights!!! He was very impressed at how easy and heavy duty this product was. He is used to welding and splicing and taking two days to have to attach a hitch..Not any more!!! We will definitely recommend this product and etrailer to all of our friends!!! 63122

I have not removed the product from the shipping packaging yet because this was purchased as a Christmas gift for my son. The box has been torn though on both ends (it looks like someone stepped on the box because there are foot prints on it). Hopefully the hitch has not been damaged. I am just rating this as good because of the damaged packaging. 110888

10 min install fit like a glove. Looks good and doesn't stick out past bumper, so you won't smash your shin into it walking around truck. 124438

Easiest install ever, 4 bolts and your ready to go! Only took 10 minutes to install. Super heavy duty hitch or else it would have only taken 5 minutes! Delivery was quick and free, what more could you ask for, except maybe a tow ball or hitch! Anyway I give it a 10 for easy, strength, and simplify! Cheers 137533

Excellent product. I just installed a few days ago so havent towed anything with it yet. It bolted on to my 2012 Dodge Durango with no trimming of the facia and used bolts that were already on the vehicle. I would highly recommend this product to others. Great service from etrailers as well!!!! 62840

This trailer hitch is great. Took about 15 minutes to install. Most difficult part was getting the spare tire out. It fits really nice close up to the bumper and does not stick out to far. 48505
