Just make sure capacity (shouldnt be a problem with your trailer) and height are correct for your trailer. Check out Harbor Freight for inexpensive solutions.

They came with factory installed towing harnesses. No need to install aftermarket stuff. The harness is in the left(driver side} rear panel. All you need to do is plug it in.

SOURCE: 2001 dodge v10 struggles to pull 8000 lb travel

Assuming that engine and trans are operating properly, and tires are not over sized beyond OEM, installing a numercially higher ratio gear set in the rear axle may be in order.

I am not a tow guru by any means, but 8000 pounds is a pretty good chunk. Swapping in a 4.10 gear set or even 4.56 should make quite a difference.

Expect to pay $800-$1200 parts and labor for the swap. If your truck is 4x4, you will have to change both front and rear gears so the price is about double.

Installation of a trailer brake in my dodge durango


One would assume that Doge believes the Durango can stop 6,200 lbs using the brakes on the Durango.

I wouldn't have thought a braked trailer relied on the vehicle's computer system, but rather on the application of a brake light, or by pressure on the hitch, like the larger boat trailers at my marina.

Having said that, there is indeed a special controller for the Durango. check out the link.

I would take vehicle and trailer to a specialist trailer installer, like Hitch City.

I only have the 3rd brake light working what is wrong with the outher ones


Does your Durango have a trailer hitch/receiver and trailer wiring harness? Is it original equipment or aftermarket? Has your Check Engine or Service Engine Soon light come on recently? If so, read the error code(s) stored in the onboard computer. You may have a physical wiring problem or a circuitry problem. I think your Durango has relays (fuse-protected) associated with your brake lights. Check our owner's manual for the location of these relays and verify that they are working properly. If so, start checking the trailer wiring harness.

How should I prepare my durango to pull a 24 foot travel trailer...what class of hitch, do I need in-board electric trailer brake controls, etc.?


Hi Frank,
I have a Durango 2000 and pull a 24 foot ski boot loaded with equipment. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't try towing anything without the trailer brakes connected. I purchased the Titan Trailer brakes setup and they've never failed me once. The hitch: just make sure you get the right towing capacity for your travel trailer. I have the 5.9 liter engine, which allows up to 6500 pounds of towing capacity. Your owners guide will explain how many based on engine size.
Good Luck, and happy traveling.

The running lights on my boat trailer are not functioning. I am not getting the voltage for the running lights circuit from the harness attached to my 2001 Durango I have checked the harness and...


You might be dealing with a grounding problem- better stated, a lack of grounding problem. If your trailer wiring doesn't have a dedicated ground wire, the trailer relies on the hitch continuity to complete a grounding circuit to the towing vehicle. You can test this idea a couple of different ways:
1. Unhook the trailer from the Durango, remove your hitch / ball and wire brush the daylights out of it. It may be corroded badly enough that it keeps your trailer from grounding back to the Durango.
2. When you're hooked up to the trailer and the lights are on, use a piece of wire to touch bare metal on both the trailer and the Durango at the same time. This will provide a grounding path and show whether or not this is a problem.

If this isn't the problem, your vehicle may have a fuse that protects the trailer light circuit. Check your manual for information.

Good luck to you.

I have a 2001 dodge durango, no blinkers


Do you have a tow hitch? The harness for the tow hitch might be rubbed through & shorting on metal. Use a test light & see if there's a short in the socket. Touch ground to a vehicle ground & it shouldn't light. Let me know if that helps.
