Today on this 2008 Chrysler Aspen with factory raised side rails we are going to install a Thule Crossroad roof rack system. We already have our crossbar assemblies put together and now we are ready to go ahead and mount them up on our side rails. There is a few things that you are going to want to make sure to do when positioning the roof rack. First you need to check to make sure that the overhang of the crossbars is even on both the driver side and the passenger side.

The last thing we need to do is make sure that our new crossbar is running perpendicular with our factory raised side rails. To do that we are going to measure from the crossroad foot to the front mount of the side rail on both sides of the vehicle and make sure this measurement is even. Once we have our positioning set we are ready to tighten down the front bar assembly we will move back and forth from the passenger side to the driver side to make sure that we tighten down the system evenly.

After we have the front crossbar tightened down we are ready to mount the rear. 54

Today on this 2008 Chrysler Aspen we will be installing a Rhino Rack roof rack part number SXB4-SILV. We already have our crossbar assemblies put together so now we are ready to mount them up on our vehicle. We want to check the overhang of the crossbar on both the driver side and passenger side to make sure it is even.

We need to ensure that the front crossbar is running perpendicular to our factory raised side rails. To do this we will measure from the end of the clamp to the front plastic shroud on our side rails and make sure this measurement is even on both sides. Once we have the front crossbar assembly in place we can go ahead and begin tightening it down.

We will move back and forth from the passenger side to the drivers side so we tighten down the roof rack system evenly and we do not lose our position.

Today on this 2008 Chrysler Aspen, we are going to install part number V82280 from Valley. All right, first we will go ahead and show you where the hitch mounts up to the frame of the vehicle. It actually mounts on the side of the frame using the existing bolt holes that are there.

Right now there are bumper bolts that are going through the frame and the bumper bracket. Those will get replaced by the bolts that come with the hitch. What we want to do is go ahead and loosen these bolts up and replace the bolts one at a time because if we take out all of the bolts at one time, the bumper is going to come down on us. So what we are going to do is replace one bolt at a time.

On this back bolt here, this is one of two that actually stays with the vehicle.

Today on this 2008 Chrysler Aspen we will be installing part number 118390 from Tow Ready. This is a T-One wiring connector. To begin our install we need to open up the hatch to get to the plastic rivets that holds the tail lights in place.

The tail lights have to come off because our wiring connections are behind the tail light themselves.

Chrysler Aspen Questions and Answers

The Ultra-Fab Motor Home 2-Inch Trailer Hitch, part # UF35-946401, is intended for installation on the rear of motor homes that have an exposed 4-inch bumper. Installation requires that the bumper be fully open in order to allow the U-bolts to attach securely. This hitch is not suitable for use on your 2008 Chrysler Aspen.

The bumper on your vehicle is designed to protect the passengers in the event of an impact. Even if you removed part of the bumper cover to expose the bumper itself, it wo

I do recommend an anti-rattle device when using the Curt cargo carrier, # C18131 or any carrier that does not already have a built in device. For an anti-rattle device and lock in one I recommend # SHP2061-BL. With the threaded square piece installed inside the hollow shank of a 2 inch accessory the threaded pin will pull the shank of the carrier tight to the side of the receiver and will take care of any movement.

I have included a link to a video showing the carrier on a similar vehicle.

The Timbren Rear Suspension Kit for the 2008 Chrysler Aspen, part # TDDRDURA, will fit the 4-wheel drive version of this vehicle but not the 2-wheel drive model. We do offer other rear axle suspension products for the 2WD model. I checked with my contact at Timbren for the exact dimensions of the rubber springs.

They measure 5-1/8-inches tall and 3-15/16-inches in diameter. The Timbren jounce springs install without drilling in place of the factory bump stops on the frame. The system has

As long as the mirrors on your 2008 Chrysler Aspen have a lip or gap between the glass and the mirror housing then you can install the K-Source mirror # KS3891. I have included a link to a video review of this mirror for you. I have also included a link to the other universal fit towing mirrors we offer.

Is the fan set up currently on your 2008 Chrysler Aspen belt driven? In any event you will need to determine if it is pushing air or pulling air. The fans that you have referenced, # D16927, and # D16919 are for puller applications only.

What I recommend is going with the most CFM that you can in a fan or fans that will fit in the space provided. You do not always have to remove the factory set up in order to install an electric fan. You just have to make sure that the aftermarket fan is not wor

What our installers do when installing hitches on the Aspen, like your 2008, is to first get the hitch in position and attach the u-bolts that go over the vehicle bumper structure. Then, they use the hitch as a template and drill through the bumper structure from the back of the vehicle. Then they drill out the other side. The bumper structure is hallow so you do not have to drill all the way through.

It is easier to get the holes lined up correctly this way. Take a look at the instructions I

Anytime you put some on the roof of your vehicle gas mileage will suffer. It really varies as to how much the mileage will suffer. I have heard of people taking a big hit in gas mileage, and I have also heard of people who claim a zero loss in gas mileage. It will really depend on how you much stuff you load into the bag as well as the overall aerodynamics of the roof of your vehicle.

I would imagine that you will lose a little bit of gas mileage, but it will not be too bad. The Thule Taho

In order to use the Rola Pursuit roof bag, # 59150, you would need to have crossbars on your 2008 Chrysler Aspen. We do have other options that will allow you to use a bag with just the side rails that are present on the roof. The GetOut, # Y07187, would be a good option. It can mount to a roof rack, side rails, or a naked roof.

It has 13 cubic feet of space, and it is cost effective. The newer version, # Y07188, features updated styling and design. Either of these bags would work will with

I do have a solution for towing mirrors for your 2007 Chrysler Aspen, however, we do not carry any custom towing mirrors that will fit your vehicle. Instead, I would recommend a universal fit towing mirror like the CIPA Clip-On Towing Mirror, # 7070. This mirror will clip on to the OEM mirror housing and secure with rubber straps around the back of the mirror.

We also offer the CIPA Deluxe Door Mount Mirror, # 11650. This style of mirror will attach to the bottom of the door and also bet

I spoke with my contact at Roadmaster and he said that the Roadmaster Rear Anti-Sway Bar, part # RM-1129-126, that fits the 2007 Dodge Durango will also fit the 2007 Chrysler Aspen. It will replace the factory rear sway bar.

Installation time is going to vary by shop and the experience of their mechanics. If you are going to an RV dealer that has experienced mechanics that have done hard wire installations several times in the past, I would say that the install time for the P-3 brake controller, # 90195, the 4-Way wiring harness, # 118390, and the brake controller installation kit, # ETBC7, will require 3-1/2 to 4 hours of install time. Here at our facility we do video installations and the time required for eac

The Kenda Tires and Wheels # AM30780 will have some air in it, but you will need to check the air pressure once you mount the tire and adjust it to the proper amount of 80 psi to ensure maximum performance of the tire. I attached an FAQ on trailer tires and wheels for you to check out also.

To determine if 4 pairs of skis and poles will fit in Yakima RocketBox 11 Black Cargo Box, # Y07149, you will need to measure them. The box is 89 inches long by 22 inches wide by 14 inches tall. In terms of height and width, the box should not have any problems accommodating your skis and poles.

As long as they are less than 89 inches long, they should fit, no problem. I have included a link to the installation details and a video review of this cargo box below. This box is also a direct fit

I think the best and easiest to install hitch would be part # 13296 from Curt. It has a 600 pound tongue weight and 6,000 pound gross towing weight capacity. The wiring kit for the Aspen is part # 118390. It will plug in between your vehicle wiring and the tail lights to grab all the right signals.

You will neeed to run a single power wire up to the battery on the Aspen to provide an isolated power source. This allows more lights to be used on the trailer as well as preventing damage to vehic

The Dexter E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System # K71-653-00 is designed to be used with 35 inch axle spacing and a 8,000 lb capacity specification. On your trailer, if you measure the distance between the center of one axle to the center of the next axle it needs to measure 35 inches. The axle capacity needs to be 4,000 lbs. or less per axle. If you have 33 inch axle spacing you can use the Dexter E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System # K71-652-00 and it has a 6,000 lb capacit

Yes, the Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring for the 2009 Aspen by Chrysler, item # 118390, is the correct wiring harness for your Aspen and you will need one other item to complete the wiring to lockout the brakes on your boat trailer surge coupler. You can go one of three ways for this wiring. The easiest way in my mind is to install the # 118390 T-One and then splice the 5-Flat Vehicle End 72 inch Wiring Harness, item # 20016, to the 4 like wires left by removing the 4-way vehicle end conn

The only way to be sure which wire is the reverse light circuit is to test the wires with a circuit tester like part # 3808. Pull the tail light of, and have someone in the cab with the foot brake and emergency brake on, find the two wires that are hot. One will be the brake light the other, the reverse light.

Put the car back into park and have someone depress the foot brake so you can determine which wire was brake and which was reverse.

I would recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, # 90885. It is easy to setup and easy to adjust when loads change. Brake controllers are not vehicle specific so any of the brake controllers you mentioned will do a good job.

If you like the P2, item # 90885-3020P, I am sure you will not be disappointed.

There should not be any difference in the wiring process between a 2007 and 2008 Chrysler Aspen. They use the exact same wiring harness so there should not be any differences. All the connectors will be in the same location and should be able to run the power wire to the battery in the same location.

It definitely sounds to me like you have the connections in the 7-way connector on your vehicle connected to the wrong circuits. From your explanation I believe you may have the ground wire connected to the circuit that you are calling the taillight circuit. Use a circuit tester, item 3808 if you need one, and the wiring diagram (see link) for the 7-way connector car end and you should be able to get the wiring connected properly. When looking at the wiring diagram remember that you are looking

I would recommend you start by using a Circuit Tester and test the pins on your trailer connector while each function is activated. If you find that you are not getting a signal on the turn signal/ brake light circuits, use the tester to test the wires going into the converter box. If you have signal going into the box, but not exiting, the converter is bad and must be replaced.

Before replacing the T-1 Harness, you’ll want to carefully examine the wiring on your trailer. If the converter ha
