Who says the SRT can't tow?

In case anybody didn't believe that the SRT can actually tow stuff:

Had to take the golf cart in for a new controller:


Had to take my Polaris in for an oil change:


And this one was about 6,000 lbs of pipe and materials to build a new well on my property:


I just wish I had something cool like a boat to tow to the lake on the weekends. Then I'd really be in business ha

Re: Who says the SRT can't tow?

I towed 1.5t the other day and you could not notice it.
I also like the fact you can remove the hitch when not in use.

Re: Who says the SRT can't tow?

It's not the SRT towing capabilities that are at question ............the SRT drivers are the towing concern.

Towing + street racing =

No sir definitely not....the SRT does have electronic dampers from Bilstein but they do not level the vehicle they only control dampening.

Re: Who says the SRT can't tow?

I heard the problem with SRTs towing is that the driver completely forgets that the big ass trailer/caravan is back there at all. Which may cause some problems for other drivers, especially changing lanes.

Re: Who says the SRT can't tow?

First tow with the SRT on the weekend. I put it in Tow mode but that just seemed to hold the gears longer than necessary so left it in Auto. No issues at all.
