  1. Do I need anti-sway bars?

    Durango Towing
    I just purchased a 2012 V6 Crew with the factory tow package and I'm looking to get a 21-24' camper trailer to pull behind it. I'm a beginner at towing, so I'm starting from ground-zero. Does the factory tow package come with anti-sway bars or some anti-sway system? If so, is it good enough? If...
  2. Transmissikon Temperature display for Durango

    Dodge Durango How-to's

    Can one still tow up to 7200 lb (AWD) or 7400 lb (RWD) with ANY V8 version of the 2018 Durango without the towing package by just adding the hitch receiver and harness?
