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.

Fapple 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.
