Best 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser Hitch Options

Today we're going to be taking a look at the best hitch options available for the 2014 FJ Cruiser. The most popular we offer is the Hidden Hitch, part number 87412, class three hitch just like to other ones we've got here. Next most popular is going to be our CURT, part number 13367. Finally, our Draw-Tite, part number 75461. Now the first noticeable difference we're really going to see here is going to be the design of the hitch. As you can see, the Hidden Hitch and the Draw-Tite, which are the exact same hitch, they're going to have a long receiver tube that comes out from our main crosstube, whereas with the CURT it's been built in or engineered into the hitch. Our connection points sit further back.

The hitch pin hole is actually out past the edge of the bumper and not too much room to clear to get bike racks and things like that.





2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser Questions and Answers


  • Using a Thule Hullavator Kayak Carrier on a 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser with Factory Roof Rack
  • I will be happy to help you out. The Thule Hullavator kayak carrier, # TH898, needs to be mounted on crossbars that extend beyond the side rails or foot pack. It will not fit any other way. So to add compatible crossbars to your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser that has factory crossbars you can use the Complete Crossroad Kit, # TH45050. These bars mount to the side rails and also include locks to deter theft. Enough of the bars will be sticking out each end to use the Hullavator. Another...

  • Weight Distribution for a 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser and 2015 Airstream 22FB Travel Trailer
  • First, as long as the gross trailer weight and hitch weight are within the capacities of your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser then it will be fine. Check your vehicle owners manual to make sure it is compatible with weight distribution. I know that many trailer dealerships will sell and install some . . . lesser quality weight distribution systems. They work but they do not work as well as other systems. So to at least take a look at your options I can go over some different models with you. First,...

  • Installing Tekonsha RF Brake Controller On 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • The Tekonsha Prodigy RF Wireless Trailer Brake Controller, part # 90250 will work great for the trailer you want to tow behind your FJ Cruiser. You have 3 wires at the back of the 7-way adapter you connected to your 4-way so you will need to connect the wire that is for the 12V power. I have attached a photo that shows which position on the connector this wire is in. You can use part # 10-1-1 to connect to that pin and run it to your positive post on your vehicle battery. You want to...

  • Oil and Transmission Cooler Recommendation for 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser For Off-Road Racing
  • Since you want to cool both engine oil and transmission fluid for a demanding off-road racing application I suggest you go with two separate coolers rather than a dual-core combination cooler. My contact at Derale confirmed the best options for your FJ Cruiser are their # D13960 Class V fan-powered Hyper-Cool Remote Transmission Cooler and their # D15660 Hyper-Cool Remote Engine Cooler. Derale runs their own off-road racing events and my technical contact was very clear that for your...

  • Low-Profile Roof Rack Crossbars for a 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser with Factory Roof Rack
  • Thule shows the Pull Top ski carrier # TH92726 as a fit to the factory crossbars on your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser so its strange that it isn't working. Before going through the expense of alternate bars first make sure that the straps on the carrier are all the way out. There might be a little slack left over to work with. If it still doesn't work then the most low-profile bars that will fit the vehicle are the AeroBlade Edge bars, # TH7502-TH7503 for silver or # TH7502B-TH7503B for black...

  • Recommended Roof Top Cargo Box for a 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • When it comes to picking out the best roof cargo carrier for your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser a lot really depends on what you are looking to use it for and what you are hauling. Typically the higher end cargo boxes are made out of stronger materials which helps them to be a little more sturdy than some of our entry-level options. If your Cruiser just has the side rails that run front to back but no crossbars then you will want to install Thule AeroBlade Load Bars # THARB53 for Aluminum,...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Allowing Full Access to the Rear of the Vehicle with Bikes Loaded
  • If you are looking for a bike rack that will give you complete access to the rear cargo area of your vehicle I have a great solution for you. But the Rola # 59401 would not tilt far enough forward to allow you to access the cargo area of your vehicle. Instead I would recommend the Thule Vertex Swing bike rack part # TH9031XT as it can swing out and away from the back of your vehicle to give you complete access to the rear door with bikes loaded. Check out the review video I attached...

  • Best Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 GMC Canyon
  • The Hidden Hitch part # 87675 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for you 2015 GMC Canyon so I would recommend it for you. If you plan on doing 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. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If the ball mount kit does not have the right rise...

  • How Far Out From Factory Mirror Does K-Source Towing Mirror KS3990 Stick
  • The K-Source Towing Mirror part # KS3990 is 5-1/8 wide. You would probably add about an inch to that to know how far out the mirror would stick when installed. That number will vary slightly though as it depends on where exactly that you install the mirror on your factory mirror. For mirrors that are much taller than normal mirrors like those on your 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser, I recommend going with a door mount mirror, # 11650. The door mount is going to give you the best performance and...

  • Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Compatibility With 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • I can't confirm that fit, but I can tell you how you can with a simple measurement. If you measure from the center of your hitch pin hole to the outermost part of your tire, you will get your clearance needed. The 3 Bike Hitch Mount Folding Rack w/ Rotating Shank, Frame Mount Cradles for 1-1/4" and 2" # 63123 has a clearance from the hitch pin hole to the upright brace of 10-1/2 inches in the 2 inch configuration. If this isn't enough clearance, I recommend the Thule Hitching Post...

  • Will the Roadmaster # 131-15 Base Plate Kit Fit a 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • Although the Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit # 131-15 will fit a handful of vehicles, it is not confirmed to fit your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser. The correct Base Plate Kit for your FJ Cruiser is the Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit # 1183-1 instead. This will work great with the Roadmaster BlackHawk 2 All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar # RM-422 that you mentioned. Keep in mind that you will also need Safety Cables, Vehicle Tow Bar Wiring, a Supplemental Braking System, and most likely a High-Low...

  • Can a Westin Grille Guard Be Installed on a 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser with Winch Option
  • The Westin grille guard, # 40-2215, attaches to the bottom of the frame rails at the very end of each frame rail on your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser. If the winch mount attaches in the same place you would not be able to install both. The other issue is the part of the mount those D-shackles mount to. The shackles could be removed but the mount still sticks out and is right where the upright supports of the Westin grille guard would be.

  • Adapter Recommendation for a FJ Cruiser with a 4-Way Towing a Trailer with a 7-Way
  • Yes, the Adapter 4 Pole to 7 Pole # 30717 that you referenced will do exactly what you want and will allow your FJ Cruiser to connect to your trailer that has a 7-way. A better choice might be the # 37185. This comes with a mounting bracket and a 4-way on the side of the 7-way as well. Either adapter will allow to tow your trailer and all of the taillight functions will work properly.

  • Recommended Trailer Idler Hub for a Trailer with 84 Spindles
  • The threaded portion of the spindle isn't that important when picking out a replacement hub. That portion of the spindle is only for the castle nut, and since you have that already you would be fine. As long as the rest of the dimensions of your spindle match the # R20484 then the hub part # 84545BX would fit.

  • Recommended Transmission Cooler For A 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • Generally speaking, the best transmission cooler to use would be the largest one you have available space for behind the grill and in front of the radiator. The largest available cooler we have as a confirmed fit for your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser is the Derale Dyno-Cool Tube-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit part # D12902. This kit comes with everything needed for installation, including instructions which you can also find linked to this answer page. The winter season will not affect performance. This...

  • Parts Needed to Install a 7-way on a 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • So it sounds like you are possibly trying to wire in a second 7-way to your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser. Which if that is the case the part # 41157 would be what you would need. Or if you are just trying to install a 7-way in general on a vehicle that does not have one you would first need to start with a 4-way. For that you would want the part # 118405 which is a confirmed fit that plugs in line with the taillight hosing of your vehicle. Now if your trailer does not have brakes all you...

  • Can Thule T2 Bike Rack be Extended to Clear Spare Tire on 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • I don't know how much space additional length you need but the shortest option is reducer sleeve # HT02 which will give you 3 additional inches beyond the hitch pin hole on the hitch on your 2015 Toyota FJ Cruiser. So on the T2 Classic # TH9045 the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole on the hitch to the nearest part of the rack when folded will be 6-1/2 inches. The next shortest is # 80300 which adds another 7 inches. If you are able to use adapter # HT02 it will not reduce...

  • Will T-Bolt Handle on Yakima Swing Daddy be Accessible on 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser with Factory Hitch
  • In order to determine if there is enough clearance to access the black T-bolt handle on the Yakima Swing Daddy # Y02464, you will want to take a quick measurement on your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser. By using a yard stick held at the rearmost point of your FJ Cruiser and a tape measure, you can determine what clearance is needed for the rack to clear the back of your vehicle. I've attached a help article on how to find this clearance for you. The T-bolt handle sits 6 inches back from...

  • Availability of Westin Black Running Boards for a 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • Yes the Westin running boards # 22-5065-1615 are available for your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser. The mounting brackets will attach to access holes on the frame of your vehicle just under the door panels and then the step will bolt to that mounting bracket. We have not had the opportunity to install these on a FJ Cruiser yet so I do not have a photo to share, but I did link an installation video of a similar step being installed onto another vehicle for you to check out how they install.

  • Recommended Prodigy Trailer Brake Controller for 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser Ultimate Edition
  • To use a brake controller like the excellent Prodigy P2 # 90885 in your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser Ultimate Edition that has 4-pole flat trailer connector you will first need to convert that to a 7-way type that has the additional circuits for trailer brakes, 12V trailer power and reverse lights, as shown in the linked photo. You will use our brake controller installation kit # ETBC7. The kit has all the parts you need, apart from the controller unit itself. Two installation videos for...

  • Does Skid Shield Stay in Place on a 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser when Installing Curt Front Mount Hitch
  • The Curt front mount trailer hitch # 31367 should fit forward of the skid shield on your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser. It should be just like the video I have linked to the right on a 2008 FJ. You can see the skid shield stays in place parts of this video. Curt does list this hitch as a fit for all models of the 2014 FJ Cruiser so that would include models with the off road package.

  • Fitting a Thule Apex 4 Bike Hitch Mounted Bike Rack to a Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • My research shows that the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest part of the spare tire on a Toyota FJ Cruiser is about 9 inches. You will want to verify this measurement to your own vehicle by measuring from the center of the hitch pin hole to the point where your spare tire ends. I've included an image that explains this measurement so you can make it at home. The Thule Apex 4, part # TH9025 has a distance of about 9-1/4 inches from the center of its hitch...

  • Can Rhino-Rack Roof Rack and Yakima Cargo Box Handle 80+ Miles Per Hour on a 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • 80 miles an hour? Where's the fire? Please note that when carrying cargo on the vehicle roof in a cargo box it is recommended to stay within the posted speed limit. If you are going 80 or above though I recommend using some additional tie downs such as # Y04031 to secure the front of the cargo box to the front of the vehicle, if for nothing else other than peace of mind. While I am confident both the Rhino-Rack roof rack # RSP25 for your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser and the Yakima cargo box...

You are going to have to look into a roof rack mounted SUP carrier like the SUP Taxi part # TH810XT which is a fit for the factory crossbars of your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser.
