you both need be more specific. OP and big edge. OP you didn't say what trim level your truck was or what engine.
manual or auto trans also comes into play on the payload or towing arguement.
in 2008, for a supercab 4x2 w/a 3.0L yes it's 1260 for the sport and 1520 for xlt w/o seats and 1660 w/ seats.
same year, supercab 4x4 w/a 4.0L it's 1440 w/o jump seats and 1580 w/.
same year, reg cab 4x2s are 1260 for the 4 banger and 1620 for the 3.0L
his is a 1997 and i don't see those numbers changing too much since the ranger itself hasn't.
if he really wants to be safe, he can get a trailer with a class 3 hitch.
for arguments sake there are others on this site that use their trucks for towing and have towed whether it's towing another vehicle or having the springs sitting on the bumpstops. heck one guy even used a 5th wheel.
