2000 Dodge Questions and Answers


  • How Much Grease To Use when Installing Bearing Buddies on a 1997 Jayco Pop Up Camper
  • Your Bearing Buddy instructions are correct. When installing bearing protectors on a trailer hub, you will want to fill the hub with as much grease as possible, so that you do not have to pump all that grease into the hub with the grease gun after installing the bearings and seals. This also helps to prevent pressure build up in the hub and blow out of the seal in the back of the hub. When using a bearing protector you should always use a double lip seal, like part # RG06-020, which...

  • Brake Controller Wire Functions By Wire Color
  • The wires exiting the rear of your controller serve the following functions. The blue wires carries the brake output from the controller, the white wire is the ground, the black wire supplies 12 Volt power, and the red wire is tied into the vehicle brake wiring. If the wiring adapter you have is an aftermarket harness, it should wire up color for color. To the right I have attached a picture of a diagram of how brake controllers wire to tow vehicles. To be safe, I would suggest using...

  • How To Determine Which Pin Box I Have and What Replacements Are Available
  • I spoke with my contact at Trailair and from your serial number we were able to determine that your trailer came with a 1621 HD pin box which is a long pin box style. I was unable to obtain the exact part number for your Trailair pin box but from the picture that you provided, it looks as though someone may have replaced the original long style pin box with a medium style. In order to determine this you will just need to take a quick measurement from the back row of bolts to the center...

  • Will Bully Dog Triple Dog GT Diesel Gauge/Tuner Work with a 2000 Dodge Ram 2500 Pickup
  • I have a couple of tuner options for you, but unfortunately Bully Dog does not make a tuner that is confirmed to work with your 2000 Dodge Ram 2500 5.9L Diesel engine. For your truck, I recommend the Edge Juice with Attitude CS2 Tuner # EP31400 or the Juice with Attitude CTS2 Tuner # EP31500. The CS2 features a color screen with buttons for navigation, while the CTS2 has a color touch screen. The Juice with Attitude tuner/monitor offers features that work to boost horsepower, torque,...

  • 7-Way Trailer Wiring for a 2000 Dodge Durango without a Factory Tow Package Connection
  • Since your 2000 Dodge Durango does not have the tow package wiring installed you will need to install a working 4-way connector, # 118334, first and then install a 4-way to 7-way adapter, # 37185. There is not a connection point for the factory replacement connector, # 42145, that you mentioned. If you need to install the 7-Way and need to have functionality for a brake controller and 12 volt power supply for towing you will need additional wiring and circuit breakers. We have an installation...

  • What Size Cover for 22 to 24 Foot Camper Trailer
  • Camper covers are manufactured to have some wiggle room to make it easier to put on your trailer and to make sure they will accommodate a variety of trailers. Since the frame of your trailer is 24 feet and your camper itself itself is 22 feet, not including tongue, you have found the correct cover, as long as the camper does not hang out over and beyond the tongue Part # 052963733631 is meant for 22 to 24 foot trailers and it should fit just fine on your trailer.

  • Tips for Getting a Stuck Gooseneck Hitch Unstuck
  • The first thing you will need to do is apply liberal amounts of spray lubricant to all of the moving parts that seem stuck. Sometimes it helps to apply some, wait an hour or so and apply more and then do whatever it takes to pry the ball out. But it really depends on what style of gooseneck hitch you have. If you have a Fold-Down style like the # 8339-4435 then basically you will just want to do whatever it takes to get the hinged cover to pry up since when it comes up it also moves...

  • Availability of an LED Trailer Tail Light Kit that Will Fit a Snowmobile Trailer
  • In terms of a pre-assembled kit with everything included, the closest we have to something with tail lights that are 2-1/2 inches tall would be the Trailer Light Kit with 25 Foot Wiring Harness, # TLL16RK. The included tail lights in this kit are 2-7/8 inches tall. Another option would be to get a couple of # STL76RB lights, and a 4-Way, trailer side wishbone wiring harness, # A35W42B. I have included a link to a video showing the installation of this wiring harness for reference.

  • What is the Towing Capacity of a 2000 Dodge Dakota
  • I have a coworker who drives a 2001 Dakota which is the same generation as your 2000. So I checked his owners manual, see pictures. It appears that the bigger V8 for this truck, the 5.9, does not have enough capacity to tow an 8,000 pound trailer. The highest of any model is 6,450 pounds. Capacity takes into account not only the motor but also the transmission, the rear end gear ratio, wheels, tires, suspension and so on. Basically you would have to replace every major component of the...

  • Equipment Needed to Flat Tow 2000 Dodge Dakota
  • You will first need a tow bar and base plates. The tow bar will fit into the receiver of the motorhome, and attach to the base plates once they are installed on the Dakota. The Roadmaster Falcon 2, part # RM-520 is a good mid-priced option. Either base plate kit # 246-5 or # 246-6 will work with your Dakota, although the 246-5 is compatible with all the tow bars Roadmaster offers. You will also need safety cables, if you do not already have them. Roadmaster offers a coiled set that works...

  • How Would The Westin Sportsman Grille Guard, # 40-0145, Install On My 2000 Dodge Durango

  • Replacement Roller Fairlead for Badlands 5000-lb Winch
  • All replacement winch fairleads we offer are shown on the linked page. These come from Bulldog, Comeup and Superwinch brands and are application specific for particular winches they make. The nearest size mount we offer to your 6-3/4-inch hole spacing (or 171.4 millimeters) is part # BDW20059 which has mounting hole centers spaced at 165mm (6.49-inches). You may be able to make this item work but for an exact replacement you'll be better off contacting the manufacturer of your Badlands winch.

  • MAP Sensor Wiring Harness and Fuel Injection Pump Location on 2000 Dodge Ram 3500 Diesel
  • If you are using Edge programmer # EP30301 that could be the problem. It is not a fit for a 2000 Dodge Ram 3500. It only fits 2001 to 2002 Rams with the 5.9 liter I6 diesel motor. The one for a 2000 Ram with the 5.9 diesel is # EP30300. On # EP30300 the gray wire with the red connector on it will connect to the fuel injection pump. The round, black connectors go to the map sensor. For the map connection you will need to look for the stock wiring harness at the boost sensor. According...

  • Wheel Lug Nut Torque Recommendations for 1/2-Inch Stud and 12-Inch Aluminum Wheel
  • Torque specs for wheel lug nuts vary depending on several factors like stud size, wheel size and wheel material. The linked image provides a listing of commonly recommended torque values. The studs on your hubs # A35RS545E are 1/2-inch diameter and since your wheels # AM31215 are aluminum, you'll use a torque range of 75-85-ft-lbs. We offer torque wrenches like # ALL944001 if you need one.

  • Custom Heated and Electric Towing Mirrors for a 2000 Dodge Ram 2500
  • For electric operation and heated towing mirrors for a 2000 Dodge Ram you will need # CM-73500. This mirrors fit in place of the factory mirrors and will retain the electric and heat options. If you were to get him these mirrors, you would quite possibly be the best - girlfriend - ever. The mirror you referenced, # KS60113C, will not fit a 2000 Dodge Ram. It fits certain models between 2002 and 2009.

  • Recommended Parts Needed To Flat Tow 2000 Dodge Dakota With Automatic Transmission
  • Your 2002 Dakota can be flat-towed. I did some research and found the recreational towing instructions on page 202 of the owner's manual. There are restrictions and instructions you will need to follow in order to tow your truck. You will need several items when you want to tow your Dakota. First you will need base plates. I recommend the Blue Ox Base Plate kit, part # BX1939. For a tow bar I recommend the Blue Ox Alpha, part # BX7365. This comes with safety cables. If you plan...

  • Recommendation For Fifth Wheel Hitch on 2000 Dodge Dakota V8 to Tow 20 foot Fifth Wheel Camper
  • I would first recommend to make sure and verify that the towing capacity of your 2000 Dodge Dakota V8 Club Cab will be able to tow the weight of the 20 foot fifth wheel camper. The Dakota has a 6-1/2 foot bed so you will need to use a slider hitch to be able to get the needed clearance between the truck cab and the fifth wheel when making sharp turns. I would recommend the Reese 16K Fifth Wheel Hitch, part # RP30075. This is a round tube slider hitch that will have 12 inches of travel...

  • Brake Controller Wiring on a 2000 Dodge Dakota
  • You do not mention whether the 7 way is factory installed. If it is, there should be a plug located behind the parking brake pedal. With the Dodge wiring adapter, part # 3020-P you should be able to easily complete your installation. Behind the emergency brake pedal, look for a small white box mounted on the firewall. The connector is typically located just above this box.

  • Why does the Husky Fifth Wheel Rail Kit for a 2000 Dodge Ram Only have 2 L-Brackets
  • The Husky rail kit part # HT31404-686 only includes 2 L-brackets as that is all that is needed to install the kit. If you check out the picture I attached you will see that the rear rail uses the L-brackets and the front attaches to the frame on a long bed truck. For a short bed truck this is reversed.

  • Will the 8 Inch Offset on the Ranch Hitch Adapter be Enough for a Short Bed 2000 Dodge Ram 2500
  • The Ranch Hitch Offset Gooseneck Coupler Adapter, # AM3139, is designed to give you 8 inches of additional clearance between your fifth wheel trailer and the back of your truck bed tail gate. This adapter will also allow you to make a sharper turn, however, it is not designed to prevent contact between your trailer and the cab of your truck. If you are looking for a product that will allow you to make a 90 degree turn, then you will need to look at a sliding fifth wheel hitch or fifth...

  • Will a Front Mount Trailer Hitch Fit a 2000 Dodge Ram 2500 with Factory Tow Hooks
  • For your 2000 Dodge Ram we have 2 front mount hitch options. You could use Curt front hitch # 31604 or Draw-Tite hitch # 65003. On both hitches, # 31604 and # 65003, both install under the front fascia and attach to parts of the truck frame that are not used by the factory tow hooks so you will not have to remove them. I have linked instructions for both hitches for you.

  • Wiring 2000 Dodge Dakota for Brake Controller
  • The 2000 Dodge Dakota will not have the quick connector under the dash for installing a brake controller unless it was factory equipped with the OEM 7-way trailer connector. I am unaware of anything a dealer might offer that would change this. Without the under-dash connector, the brake controller would need to be hardwired into the existing vehicle wiring using our Brake Controller Installation Kit, part # ETBC7. This would be a more involved installation than simply plugging the controller...

  • Can Weight Distribution Hitch Be Used with Hitch Extender Like MaxxTow # MT70070
  • A hitch extender or adapter, like the dual-receiver MaxxTow # MT70070, cannot be used with weight distribution (WD) systems. As you note, use of ANY adapter has the unavoidable side-effect of cutting your hitch's capacity by 50-percent. An adapter would prevent the WD system from doing its job of shifting trailer tongue weight forward to the Dakota's front axle to keep your braking and steering performance intact. But we do have better alternatives for you. If you have an a-frame trailer...

  • How to Add an Additional 7-Way to Existing Factory 7-Way on 2000 Dodge Ram 2500
  • What you will need to do is add an additional 7-Way to your 2000 Dodge Ram 2500 by using the Draw-Tite Custom Fit 90 Degree Vehicle Wiring Harness, part # 51-97-411. This wiring harness will plug in between the OEM wiring harness and your factory installed 7-Way connector and give you an additional 7-Way in the bed of your truck for your camper to plug into. I also have the Draw-Tite Wiring Harness, part # 20111, that will do the same thing as the harness mentioned above. When using...

  • Tailgate Assist Product for 2000 Dodge Ram Pickup
  • The Hopkins EasyLift Tailgate Assist, part # 74211 is compatible with your 2000 Ram Pickup. The hardened spring steel torsion spring makes a 40 lb tailgate feel like it weighs less than 10 lbs. I've linked a product demonstration video you. The DeeZee # DZ43301 you mentioned is a fit for later-model Ram trucks, unfortunately they don't offer a model compatible with your truck.

  • Can a Breakaway Switch be Wired Directly to the Trailer Battery Rather Than the Breakaway Battery
  • All breakaway switches are designed to be wired to the positive terminal of a 12 volt battery and to the vehicles electric brake circuit. The switch can be wired to your trailer battery if you did not want to purchase a separate breakaway battery. The Hopkins LED Breakaway Switch, # HM20060, has three wires because it has an LED light in the switch. The ground is for the LED light, not the brake switch. When the pin is pulled, power would still be fed to the electric brake circuit....

This bumper is black powder coated with a diamond plate top for sure footing. You do not have to use the higher priced bumpers (see link) unless you want the added features that they offer, like chrome finish, rubber step pads, or OEM design.

  • Brake Controller Wiring on a 2000 Dodge Dakota with Factory Tow Package
  • All fuses and breakers needed for the operation of your brake controller should already be in place. You can check your owner's manual for the location of the fuses that manage the tow package. All you should have to do is plug in one end of the wiring adapter, part # 3020P to the port next to the emergency brake, then attach the other end to the brake controller. The connection point should be under the dash, near the top of the emergency brake pedal. The actual connector will be light...
