Per Chrysler it was not applicable. There have been some who have towed other rc srt-10's with there rc with no problem. It really just boils down to not burning up the clutch.

If I had to guess, I say an RC should be able to tow whatever a 3rd gen Hemi 1500 could tow which after looking it up was 9100 pounds.

Once I c-notch the frame on mine, i'll install the helper bags too.
SRT10 seems well suited for towing with those massive brakes IMO.
Fairly certain my truck has a stage 2 clutch so i'm not too worried about that either...

My buddy has a shop. And a forklift
He builds those semi trucks into pickup trucks. You know? Cut out like 15 feet of the frame in a big diesel box truck and then weld it back together with a F350 bed on it or whatever. Pretty cool.

Weakest point is the clutch...remember that...

Can be towed, get an aluminum open trailer, like 16 foot or so, center car carefully for balance and weight distribution...on any hills get out of 6 th gear and downshift, don't worry about MPG you want to think about the clutch...my $,02

What oil do you run??? Your truck should be a good example of what works for how long -
