A lot will depend on what Class of hitch is installed on this vehicle. If you are towing with a bumper ball you are most likely not looking at more than 2500 lbs with a 500-lb tongue weight. With a hitch you can tow much more. However, without upsizing the transmission cooler I wouldn't tow much more than the 2500 lbs on a regular basis, or you risk burning up the trans.
