Pulling it up the ramp is the only place I'd say the truck is actually working very hard.
Still manages the task alright tho (Dad's V8 4 runner much better at hauling up the ramp as one would expect).
Aside from a noticeable drop off in acceleration and a bit of working to get up hills the truck manages the load without much difficulty. The boat trailer carries most of it's weight on the two axels so not much weight is dragging on the Ranger's hitch.
The Ranger squats just over an inch with the full weight of the trailer resting on the hitch, which is not excessive in my mind.
Visibility is the main issue. Rear view is totally blocked, and side mirrors are pretty full of boat so I wouldn't want to drive it around heavy traffic without extended mirrors installed.
Total load weight including the trailer is around 4,700 lbs so still under the Rangers 5,600 lb rating. I don't use any type of weight distribution namely because of how small a percentage of total trailer weight is on the tongue.
