towing with my jeep

I was towing my wife's car (a Honda fit) on a flat bed car hauler. I have the 5.7L summit with the towing package. when we accelerate it is fine but cruising and light acceleration was horrible, the shudder was unbelievable, I could hardly see straight. the shudder was worse around 55-65 mph. has anyone had this problem?

The shutter is common with the Hemi. Have you noticed it while not towing?

Try towing in sport mode. I tow in sport and the shift points are better.
