Towing with a Nitro
Anyone towing with a Nitro yet? I'd like to hear about your experience.
I have a 98 Dakota I tow a 4000 ski boat on a tandem axle trailer with surge brakes. The Dakota GVWR is 6000 lbs with a 5.2 liter that has 230 horse & 300 ft/lbs of torque. Will a Nitro (GVWR of 4000 lb) with the 210 horse & 235 ft/lbs of torque really pull this boat safely? I know the Nitro is rated for 5000 lbs but it doesn't seem like towing a 5000 lb trailer with a 4000 lb truck is very wise. Maybe with a tandem axle & trailer brakes it can be done though. Anyone ever do it?
