    Took a bunch of effort to get this dialed in, and since I liked the outcome so much I thought I'd share. Roast me!
  2. Durango Towing
    I am looking at a DD RT Hemi 5.7l V8 with class IV tow package to pull our 30' ft trailer dry weight 6238lbs 604lbs hitch weight. The driver door sticker says GVWR is 7100lbs I'm trying to figure out the GCWR as I'm assuming this tells me the total weight - trailer loaded, car loaded that the...

    Looking to save some cash. We want a Durango with the tow package and blacktop package. It looks like the difference between with/without the blacktop package is generally about $5k (shopping around online). BUT, if I can buy the car without the package and add it later ($1k? $2k?) I could save...

    I'm new to the forum - we actually don't own a durango yet. We just bought a camper, and I know the durango is the best vehicle for our family to tow with. I've read a few posts about people asking this question - but I'd like to hear from those of you with experience towing with the V6...

    Hey Guys. I'm new to the site. I just picked up a 17k mile 2018 Durango R/T AWD last night that was advertised as having the tow package, but does not. I discovered this before I made an offer and got the dealer to make a concession on this point. This is the first V8 vehicle in my livery in...

    I made this video for my 14 Jeep and can confirm that it is the same process for the current gen Durango as well as they are identical. On the 18+ I believe he only extra thing you will need is a bypass for the security module which is not included in the video. The stuff to do it cheaper...
  7. Durango Towing
    Hello! First time posting! I just purchased an incredibly maintained 2012 Durango w/ the 3.6L w/ 5sp auto trans w/ AWD with 110k miles on it so I figured I needed to join some forums. It's an SXT and did not come w/ tow package, but previous owner had the dealer add the factory hitch to tow his...

    I have a dealer installed Oem tow package and they did the manual splicing for a Tekonsha Primus iQ brake controller at the time. Years later I got a camper and I’m trying to run the controller but there is no power to the black wire. I chased it back to see where they spliced into and it’s an...

    I purchased a 2011 Durango Citadel AWD. We are a large family looking to purchase a travel trailer. How do I figure out if I have the tow package or not? The dealer that I purchased it from was not very helpful and would only say "We're not sure, but probably not." The service after the sale...
  10. 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...
  11. Dodge Durango How-to's
    I searched this forum to try to learn if "transmission temperature" is displayed in the DID of my 2016 Dodge Durango R/T somewhere. I could not find a helpful post to answer this question. After reading the car manual 15 times on page 334, it was still a mystery. I had this info available on...
  12. Durango Towing
    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? I'm looking to purchase a new 2018 and wonder if I have to find one with the towing package or if the receiver/harness can just...
  13. Durango Towing
    We are getting some really confusing advice about what size travel trailer we can pull. We have a 2006 Durango with a 5.7L Hemi and a factory installed tow package (we are almost certain of that....we found the blue plug for the brakes and a tow/haul button on the shifter.) What we haven't...
  14. Durango Towing
    Good morning! I am completely new to towing and need advice on what to add to my Durango and what I can tow. I am looking to purchase a TT with a dry weight of 5300 with GVWR of 7100. I know the towing for my vehicle is 6200. Will the weight of the camper be an issue? Is there anything I can...
  15. Durango Towing
    I cannot find any complete information on what folks have used for towing mirrors other than the kind that strap onto the doors (such as the McKesh Mirrors). I would prefer the they type that clamp onto the actual mirrors and something that is not too expensive. I like this type but it...

    Does anyone know if the 2007 4.7 V8 4WD Flexfuel Aspen (same as 07 durango) comes equipped with a transmission cooler. Looks like it is and I had a car savvy guy tell me that there's lines coming off of something behind my grill that goes to the transmission. Reason i'm asking is that I'm...

    We have a 2003 Durango with the towing package, the sticker on the driver's door says 6400lbs is our max towing weight. We bought a 5000lb travel trailer, got it all hitched up, drove it off the lot and the first hill we began to have trouble. Engine running hot, cooled off on the down hills...

    We would appreciate some advice on towing... And arranging car seats! We have a 3rd baby due in July and locating and accessing 3 car seats in an SUV has turned out to be a challenge. So far we have figured out we can put two rear facing car seats in the second row and the forward facing can...

    Great forum guys. It has been very helpful in deciding to purchase a 2008 Durango that I picked up last night with 75,000 miles. I have a question about the tow/haul button which I do have on the end of my gear shifter. I pulled my VIN before buying and my rig does have the tow prep package...
