Default Towing capacity???

I have a Canadian spec 1999 3.8 - it has a tow bar already fitted and I wondered what the towing capacity specifications are please?

Gross train weight, and max unbraked and braked trailers?

Your owners manual clearly states the towing capacities. If you don't have a manual, then get one they are on Ebay all the time or go to a junkyard, I'm sure you'll find one there.

I towed over 4000# with my minivan but the trailer had brakes and I didn't do it much, just in a pinch.

H69,
The Chrysler website has manuals you can download, I am not sure how far they go back but it might be worth a try. Maybe with a VIN, an email to Chrysler might be able to clear up the numbers for you.

Thanks, my manual is Québécois and all in French - I'm in the UK and AFAIK the 3.8 was never sold here, certainly most folk scratch their heads when they see it

I'll go check out the website and cross my fingers

Did a little searching on my lunch break today.

Here are the 2010 figures.. might be a little different for you but it gives you some ideas.

Chrysler UK ran the VIN for me - I have the full tow pack from the factory, so top capacity

Hello everyone,

My family wants to visit the national parks in a tent trailer. We have a 1997 T & C with the heavy duty suspension, but NO towing package. The manual states that it'll pull up to 1500 pounds with 3-5 persons plus luggage. Has anyone tried to install an aftermarket towing package? I want to buy a tent trailer with a UVW of 1880 pounds. What is everyone's experience pulling up a 6 % highway grade? I love in Los Angeles and the 5 north from Los Angeles goes up a steep hill. From my research the heavy duty towing package was this: - Heavy Duty Engine Cooling
- Heavy Duty Radiator
- Heavy Duty Transmission Oil Cooler
- Load Leveling & Height Control
- Trailer Tow Wiring Harness

Which of these elements will give me that 3500 pound towing capacity?

Thanks for any help that you can provide.

Mark
