In order to determine if your 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 could tow your 2012 Dodge Journey across the country you will need to track down both vehicle's owners manuals first. You will need to make sure that the truck has enough capacity to tow the weight of the Journey and also determine what type of towing restrictions Dodge has for the vehicle. Sometimes all wheel drive vehicles can be flat towed without a problem or with minor modifications, and sometimes the only option is a trailer.

You might be able to use a tow dolly like part # RM-2050-1, but typically all-wheel drive/rear wheel drive vehicles have restrictions on towing like this.
