I have been using the stock shocks & didn't have any "bottoming" with a 280 lb. tongue weight on a 3400 lb. trailer ...
I was using the HiddenHitch hardware (300 lb tongue weight/3500 lb towed weight limits), not the Mopar. The Mopar hitch is much better hidden (totally invisible when not in use) but has a 200 lb tongue weight / 2000 lb towed weight limit unless you are using a "load leveling" attachment to the trailer hitch itself (this add-on typically runs $300-350 US) which ups limits to 350/3800.
All bets off if running SRT8 - no towing allowed on that package!
Yes, you can add all parts of the tow package except for the oil cooler which is in side the radiator housing. The wire harness 4 & 7 both are routed the same way and both the install of the hitch and harness are described in the KB and the suspension is in detail at the Hotchkis website.
