Highest Capacity Hitch Available for 2001 Dodge Durango


Towing a 25 tralier @ an 8000 lb weight behind a 01 Durango What hitch would you recommend and is that to heavy for the vehicle?


Expert Reply:

A trailer weighing 8000 lb would be about twice the 4100 lb towing capacity of your 2001 Dodge Durango, according to what I found online. I wasn't able to find a pdf copy of the owner's manual online, so I'd recommend checking your owner's manual for confirmation of that towing capacity.

The highest capacity hitch we offer for the 2001 Durango would have a 5000 lb towing/500 lb tongue weight capacity like the Curt Class III, part # C13097. Even though the Draw-Tite # 75081 hitch you'd looked at has a
7500 lb towing/750 lb tongue weight capacity if used with weight distribution, you'll still be limited by the vehicle's towing capacity, whichever is lower.
