|mrbigjeep||definitely...you'll still have plenty of power with the hemi|

|JeepGuyLJ||yeah i was thinking about the tail pipes too cause you really cant put a hitch on at all. i guess it really wasent meant to tow anything around. i think the hemi will do the job.|

|4Jeepn||Not sure how the new Grand tows, have two buddies that tow with older grands, ZJ and WJ. Can't fly up the hills, but they get the job done. I tow with an 04 dodge 1500 hemi. Does just fine for me. I can cruise at 65mph and have plenty of power to pass most cars and other trucks going up hills. If I had to do it all over again i would look for a 3-5 year old diesel and once I found one in decent shape that would be my tow rig.|

Here is a list of the top 10 tow vehicles. I would go for #1 or #3. just my opinion. Diesel is premo!! I tow with my Chevy Tahoe and 350cid 260hp. My gas milage drops from 17mpg to about 9mpg and it is pretty hard on the engine.
The Grand with a Hemi will have has plenty of power It's the rest of the vehicle I would worry about. I like to tow with a vehicle with a solid frame not unibody.
That's just my 2 cents,

Too Much Juice...
The 5.7L HEMI will do the trick...
The 6.1L SRT8 will be a problem because of the Exhaust .
They are blast to drive in the 6.1 but all any one needs is the 5.7.
I'm here for you you if you need help with anything.

|JeepGuyLJ||Its going to be a long time when i plan on getting it but i didnt want to buy a chevy or ford i want to tow my jeep with a jeep that would be cool. but i guess if i have to go with a big truck like a chevy or ford i would go with the chevy.|

|mrbigjeep||its got a heck of a lot of power...tow rating is pretty high...should be freakin fast and powerful|

|MR.CLIFFORD||wheelbase is kinda short if you plan to tow quite a bit. Diesel is the only way to go for tow.|

Jeep grand cherokee srt8.
I was thinking when i finish my payments on my LJ i would go out and see if i can get a jeep grand cherokee srt8 to drive around and pull my LJ behind to the trails. you guys think its a good idea cause i wanted something to tow my LJ around when i wanted to go off-road and didnt want to buy a chevy or ford you know what i mean. I think its got alot of power with the 6.1L 420hp and 420lb.
