Help - 4.0 L, V6 Auto 1999 Ranger
I have had my Ranger for 7 years. It's a 4x2, V6 4.0 automatic Supercab. I thought I was told at one point by a Ford dealer that this year was made with 3 different rear differentials and my truck was made to pull a lot.
I want to buy a travel trailer and my mechanic in Greeley (who hasn't seen my truck in 3 years) told me that 2800 lbs would kill my truck.
I need help as all of the Ford dealers that I have called could not give my any information on how heavy of a trailer I can pull. And I'm a newbie and not certain what I need besides the obvious of lights and a brake controller. Could someone please help me out here?
Oh, and I just had my transmission rebuilt and it only has 600 miles on it. What can I do to protect my transmission pulling any weight of trailer? Also, my truck has an Overdrive, which I never use...
