Speaker 1: Today, in this 2018 Dodge Durango we’ll be having a look at and showing you how to install the Curt class three trailer hitch receiver, part number C13182. Here’s what our hitch looks like installed. One thing that you’ll notice is that our hitch is tucked up nice and tight against our fascia here giving us as much ground clearance as possible. On the side of our receiver, you’ll find out industry standard 5/8th of an inch diameter hitch pin hole to secure any of our hitch mounted accessories. You can pick up a pin and clip on our website as part number PC3. Welded onto the bottom of our receiver and the frame of our hitch, is our safety chain hooks.

These are plate style design and they have a fairly large opening, which will even accept a large diameter safety chain hook like this one without a problem. Welded on the back of our receiver is this collar here, which helps to reinforce the opening and gives it a nice finished look.As far as weight capacities go, this hitch features a 600 pound max tongue rate rating, which is the amount forcing down, a 6,000 pound max trailer weight rating, which is the amount I can pull. It does support the use of weight distribution and we’re using out of our trailer, our tongue weight rating increases to 750 pounds, and our trailer weight rating increases to 7,500 pounds. You’ll want to make sure you consult the owner’s manual of your Durango and not exceed what the vehicle is rated for. Somethings our customers really like about this hitch, being tight up against our fascia, they have plenty of ground clearance, and also makes it easy to use with a lot of hitch mounted accessories.Now, for a few measurements to better assist you in choosing any hitch mounted accessory you may need, such as a ball mount, bike rack, or a cargo carrier.

You’re looking at about 14.5 inches from the ground to the top of the two inch receiver opening, and about four inches from the center of the hitch pin hole through the most part of the bumper. Now that we’ve gone over some features, we’ll show you how to get it installed.To begin our install, we’ll open our rear hatch. Now, we’ll open our rear cargo cover here, hold it forward, remove this mat underneath, pull up on this cover here to gain access to our mechanism to load a spare tire. You will need your spare tire tools in order to lower your spare tire. They’re located inside this compartment here.

Lift up on the tire. In order to remove this white piece, you’ll need to use a screwdriver to help pry away from the spare tire hanger itself. Once you have it pried away, you can slid the hanger through the white piece, safely removing the white piece. You can slid this part through the center of the wheel, and get our spare tire out.Now, we find ourselves underneath the vehicle. We’ll point out where our installation hardware is located.

We have two 21 millimeter factory bolts. We’ll remove these bolts. It’s the same on both sides. We’re looking at the driver side right now. You may need to pull down your wiring harness a little bit, so you have room for your socket to get on the bolt. Now, with an extra set of hands, we’ll raise our hitch into position, and we’ll secure it into place with the factory hardware that we removed. Okay, with our hitch in place, we can now tighten down all of our hardware. Now, we’ll torque all of our hardware to the amount specified in the instructions. Now, we can reinstall our spare tire. And that completes our look at and install of the Curt class three trailer hitch receiver, part number C13182 on this 2018 Dodge Durango.

More often than not, the majority of the very best options packages are hidden behind extra expensive trims with bigger, thirstier engines. Dodge is equalizing its packages a bit with the brand-new Durango GT Rallye Look Package.

The Dodge Durango GT Rallye Look Package includes sportier plannings to the GT trim, which, while not the base trim, still relies on Dodge’s V6 engine. Not only is the V6 extra reliable, its cost is substantially more available.

The bundle includes a performance hood, front fascia and LED fog lights, which are obtained from the V8-powered R/T and SRT designs. The bundle will certainly set you back $1,495, and it can be had in one of 7 colors: DB Black, Granite, In-Violet, Octane Red, Redline Red, Vice White and White Knuckle.

The Durango GT is offered in both rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive variants, with a starting cost of $37,895. Its V6 puts out 295 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Despite the smaller engine, it can still tow a lot– 6,200 pounds, to be specific. Common devices includes leather-trimmed seats, 2 rows of heated seats, a power liftgate and 20-inch black alloy wheels.

The Durango GT Rallye Look Package is offered for purchasing currently, and Dodge noted that it’s only offered for a minimal time, however it really did not specify the length of time it’ll be offered
