    My dad always put booster shocks on his towing vehicles. I was surprised when I discovered that they were available for my non-towing-package 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan. And since I needed new shocks anyway, I decided to give them a try. This is the install and results.

    I have to run to a couple local places to pick up some landscaping items. One of the places has a short gravel road leading to it. I would normally use one of my other vehicles for towing but they are spotless clean. (Yes, I'm that anal) The van is already dusty from some road work going on...

    Hi Gang! I would like to buy a minivan for the family in the next month, but would also like to buy a fishing boat in five years when my boys are old enough to appreciate it. The more I research the topic, the more confused I become. Some state that minivans should not be used for towing...
