2005 Dodge Durango Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Bought the Durango with Hemi for towing a 26' trailer. Generally does well except through the high desert states where it constantly shifts up and down even with the tow feature engaged. I can usually find a happy medium towing but not so here. Would probably do better with the 3:73 ratio differentials instead of the 3:92. Also maintenance is expensive requiring synthetic oil in rear differential. An exhaust manifold stud broke in the head @ 43,000 miles. Shop had replaced same one on another Hemi a month earlier. I don't mean to talk the rig down because I really do like the rig and enjoy driving with all the bells and whistles and great stability.
