tow question

Hey guys im thinking about adding a tow hitch on my truck to tow a small trailer and a motorcycle not together of course. My question is two fold first is what kinda hitch is best for the ranger and second is there anything special i should do to gear my truck up for towing. Its not a huge amount of weight but i dont want to have a problem with it. i have a v6 3.0L motor auto tranny with o/d

Just need a Class III hitch. I like Reese but there are tons of different brands that are good.

If you were towing a lot I would say add a tranny temp gauge.
