A little difficult to install, if you're not confident/capable of taking on the project I wouldn't recommend it. If you watch the video you'll know exactly what to do. HIGHLY recommend raising the rear end to improve access. Operationally perfect. Four Star rated because of difficulty of install. 808438

I purchased this for our 2017 Journey originally in the fall of 2017. Last year we were in an accident (not our fault). We bought another identical 2017 Journey and ordered an identical setup for it. I was happy the first time with the parts and I simply duplicated it on the replacement Journey. 804480

Hitch and lighting for a 2013 Dodge Caravan and a 2017 Dodge Journey. Cost less then Uhaul wanted for the same hitch on only one vehicle. Very easy install on both vehicles, 3 hour total install time for both, Journey took the longest thinks to some of dodges questionable engineering. Great customer service through entire purchase process. Will continue to use for any future trailer needs. 805060

by:

They say it’s a “20 min install”...but plan on about 45 mins to an hour. Not a problem of the product, but the one thing the don’t mention is cleaning out ALL the rails of the frame. I had it half assembled before I found that a 1/2 inch of dirt wasn’t allowing the bolt to come all the way through. Plus rust and the exhaust being a massive pain...Id say plan an hour. OTHERWISE was everything was cleaned it went in pretty damn easy!! Can’t beat the deal when installing yourself. Picking up out trailer tomorrow! 790354

Definitely watch the install videos before you get started and you'll be a mile ahead when you start. And yes you have to drop all three exhaust hangers even the back one, tried to get around this since the hanger was on pretty snug. A little lubricant spray and a pair of pliers it slid off. Install was just like video, HOWEVER on our 2019 Journey Crossroad there is an electrical attachment on the rear drivers side to the inside of the rear mount bolt it must be taken loose and pushed to the side for the drivers side to be able to push up high enough to get the bolts through. Other than that it was a breeze to install even had the wife be my other set of hands and we are still together afterwards. 787504

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch

  • Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2013 Dodge Journey that Will Work with a Trailer that has LED Lights
    For the trailer wiring harnesses for the 2013 Dodge Journey the indications in our fit guide that specify with or without LED lights pertain to the vehicle tail lights. So if your Journey has LED lights you can use # 118536. If it does not have LED lights use # 118567. Both wiring harnesses are compatible with trailers that have LED or regular incandescent lights. I have linked videos on both harnesses for you.

  • Towing Capacity of a 4-Cylinder 2013 Dodge Journey
    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.

  • Towing Capacity and Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2016 Dodge Journey 4 Cylinder
    According to the vehicle owner's manual the 2016 Dodge Journey with the 2.4 liter 4 cylinder motor has a maximum gross trailer weight capacity of 1,000 pounds and tongue weight capacity of 100 pounds. Based on this you would not be able to tow a 1,700 pound trailer. There aren't a lot of trailers that are under 1,000 pounds so if you have a different tow vehicle with a higher capacity I recommend using it for towing. If you do find a trailer that is within the vehicle capacities then...

Next, you will measure the coupler height from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler when the trailer is on level ground. Next, you will need to compute the difference.
