Anyone have a yes or no vote whether we can safely tow this? We would only tow within 2 hours of our home, less then ten times a year.
Even IF you do manage to squeak under you max towing capacity, do you really want to have have to worry about the weight of the family dog, or bringing a friend camping with you to put your family in jeopardy?

I have a 2007 Chrysler aspen that I towed a rockwood roo 233s that had a dry weight of 4453 lbs. it did it no problem but I have the 5.7 hemi. the only issue I see is the engine and tranny. you will definitely work them both!

what are you planning on putting in the Durango and what is you ccc ?
