Re: towing 5k lbs with hemi without factory tow package
Kevin, since towing is an important capability for you, I seriously suggest you look for a JGC that has the factory towing option...the brakes, suspension, cooling, etc., are going to be a lot better suited to what you want to do, especially with the frequency and distance you'll be towing. I only tow very infrequently (similar weight as you) and I wouldn't want to be doing it without the factory tow that I have.
