Me too, I tow an 04 dakota 4x4 with a a blue ox base plate ( very simple install ) and a ready brute tow bar with the intgated ready brake. ( also a very simple intall) Very nice to have a 4x4 with you and the extra space to haul the bikes or whatever in the pickup box.

We towed an 01 Dakota Quad cab 4x4 and it did fine, although I think the Jeep we now have is easier. What are you towing with?

The owners manual for a 2009 Dakota says that you have to disconnect the negative battery cable when towing a 4x4.
You don not have to do this as per the owners manual on a 2500 Ram 4x4.
Why would this be different on the two trucks.
