Recommended Items To Make 2018 Toyota Sienna Tow Ready


I understand all the items you specifically mention as to add ons to make the vehicle towing ready. Additionally, is anything else needed such as transmission cooling etc?


Expert Reply:

Yes, if you are going with the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76112, add a transmission cooling is always a plus to preserve the life of your vehicle. I recommend the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit # D13502. This is one of the more popular cooling systems available, the radiator-style, plate-and-fin heat exchanger provides increased surface area so that fluids can spread out along the finned chambers to cool faster. The overall dimensions are 11" wide x 7-1/4" tall x 7/8" deep. The mounting dimensions are 6-1/8" tall by either 5-1/4" or 6-3/4" wide.

Also I agree with what was recommended in question 237261, the etrailer ball mount kit # 989900 is one of our best products. When it comes to trailer wiring, if your Sienna is the SE model I recommend the # 118498. If you don't have the SE model the recommended wring is # 118648. They both allow you to quickly and easily install a 4-way trailer connector on your vehicle with this custom wiring harness. T-One connector plugs directly into existing wiring. which is located behind the driver's-side and passenger's-side tail lights. You will have to remove the tail light assemblies to access this harness.

If your in the market for a brake controller I recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller # 90195. If you don't have a factory 7-way you will need # ETBC7.
