Fair enough, and a Wrangler has a tow rating of 3600#, yes it can tow - but it's not a tow rig. It doesn't take much to hit 5-7000#.
Couple jet-skis? small boat? Even a 21' bowrider weighed in a 3500#, plus 2500# for the trailer (600#) and you should allow additional weight for passengers, equipment (picnic gear, water-ski gear, fluids, etc.,). It all adds up and doesn't take much. Unless you're emptying the SRT completely (no luggage, low fuel, few passengers, - you're not going to be rated for 7000# towing).
Load one up, hitch it up and let's run it through the Appalachians or somewhere....
Consider the source though.....'course I drive a Ram 3500 4x4 with a 16,400# tow rating....
