The captains chairs in the Durango do not slide fore/aft, but there is some adjustment of the seat back angle.

Re: Travel Trailer towing w/ a 2014 Citadel

Re: Travel Trailer towing w/ a 2014 Citadel

Yeah, I noticed that.

Totally talking out my @ss here, but do the WK2 Grand Cherokees have the same mirrors as the Durango? If so, a mirror for the Jeep should fit.

Re: Travel Trailer towing w/ a 2014 Citadel

It is better, but you're looking at a trailer that loaded to capacity is very close to the D tow capacity. It'll do it, but it won't always be the most pleasant experience.

I checked the Dodge Owner Connect for our VIN yesterday. The only recall shown is for the sun visor wiring.
