How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2008 Chrysler Town and Country

Today on our 2008 Chrysler Town and Country, we'll be installing the Curt 2 Inch Receiver Hitch, part number 13364. This is what our hitch will look like once installed. Next, we'll go ahead and give you a couple measurements to assist your selecting accessories for your new hitch, such as a ball mount, bike rack, or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole, to the outermost edge of the bumper is 4 1/4 inches. From the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 13 inches. Now we'll go ahead with installation. Now to begin our install, we'll first go ahead and point out the attachment points.

We'll have a total of 5 attachment points, 2 on the passenger's side and 3 on the driver's side. These attachment points will be weld nuts built into the frame by the manufacturer and already have the manufacturer's hardware in the weld nuts, so we'll be reusing the manufacturer's bolts to secure the hitch. Now to gain easier access to the passenger's side, we'll go ahead and lower the exhaust. To lower the exhaust, we'll remove the fastener that secures the metal hanger to the frame, starting with the rear hanger just behind the rear axle, and then we'll move just forward of the rear axle and remove the second fastener. Now with the exhaust lowered, we can go ahead and remove the fasteners in the frame. The fasteners we'll be removing is starting from the frame, nearest the bumper.

Once we have them both removed, we can go ahead and repeat the same process on the other side. Now with the bolts removed, we're ready to go ahead and install the hitch. We'll feed the passenger's side up over the exhaust and bring the driver's side into position. We'll install each fastener finger tight until we have them all in place. Note on the passenger's side, before you tighten the hitch down, make sure that the rear air conditioning line is out of the way and will not get pinched between the hitch and the frame. Now with all of our fasteners tightened down, we'll go ahead and torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Once we've torqued to specifications, we'll go ahead and double check the A/C line, make sure it's not hitting or rubbing on the hitch or hardware, and then we can go ahead and re-install the exhaust.

Now with the exhaust re-installed, this will complete the install of our Curt Hitch, part number 13364 on our 2008 Chrysler Town and Country. .
