We just had a flood in my home town of Cedar Rapids Iowa and I used my 1994 ford ranger, 4.0ohv, standard cab with the 6ft bed to pull my 8'x5' lawn mower trailer. I loaded the aluminum trailer up to a total weight of about 2.5-3.5 tons each load for four days, we made 107 loads all acrossed town in the first three days, it will pull it if you know what your doing. Some tips for you are 1. Try to avoid stopping on hills 2. Don't ride the brakes going down hills 3. Put weight of some form in the bed of your truck so you can stop without sliding 4. Watch all your gauges (especially the oil pressure and engine temperature) 5. Don't go fast at all, take it slow off the start and keep it at a steady RPM until you don't accelerate anymore, then slowly increase your RPM's 6. Always be aware of what others around you are doing, they will be going much faster than you most likely 7. Always be preparred to stop, let off the gas and be prepared to stop whenever coming up on a stale green light, if you start to slide then use your breaks as a pulse 8. When I pulled that much weight I found that if i went at least 5mph under the speed limit then it was much easier to stop and keep the truck stable 9. Don't overload your truck to much 10. When parking on a slope come to a complete stop and hold your foot on the brake, then set the PARKING brake before the park in the transmission (this way your gears in the transmission don't get binded up) after your parking brake has been set you can put the transmission in park but let off the brake pedal slowly in case your parking brake fails These are the basics when it comes to towing a trailer that exceeds your rates towing capacity, if you follow these then you should have absolutely no problem with your truck during or afterwards, just remember to be safe and don't get excited or nervous behind the wheel
