Thanks Moparboy

Hey thanks Alex for coming over and helping install my hitch, it looks great......dick


Had to do it myself. It's done, just have to wire it up. It does look good though. Mopar makes a good hitch. Tomorrow I buy a trailer!

What are you using to pull the trailer?

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I'd guess that since it's a company car it might end up pulling more than it should

Towing capacity on a base 300 is 1000lbs. I think that's because the brakes suck.

200lb trailer plus a 350 lb bike is about all I'll be pulling. Maybe two bikes max.

brakes are same between 2.7 and 3.5 engines, possbly even the Hemi cars. SRT-8s have huge fucken Brembo brakes.

its just the fact that its a small baby motor in a big car, they dont want you over working her and the tranny.

What is this 200lb trailer and 350lb bike you speak of?
I take that back, there are a couple of options for trailers in that weight range. It's funny how quickly it starts to add up though.

Nice. I'm sure mine won't get over 80.

I just installed the wiring harness, talk about easy!!!

Now i just have to assemble the trailer, load my bike on it, and I'm all set.
