Icon5 1996 Ranger Hauling Ability.

Alright So my neighbor has a 1996 Ranger. We want to go about 35 miles away from home to a forest. I also have a ranger that i use for work and a Ford F-250 for taking the quads and other thing. Well he finally bought toys for his family. He bought a 400ex, scrambler,crf450 and a yzf250. He is betting me that his ranger can haul all those thing and a utility trailer at the same pace as my F-250. I want to know if this 96 ranger is even gonna be able to get out of the drive way. I have taken my ranger about 4 miles with 2 quads and a dirt bike and definitely felt the weight. I think his is a V6,4x4 and auto. Any one have experience with this weight

It won't be that bad depending on what kind of trailer he has. My F350 with a 30' gooseneck and a 6k pound tractor could outpull my Ranger with 2 lawnmowers on a 14' trailer

EDIT I re-read to make more sense. He'll be fine. I haul 2 4wd quads and KX125 in the bed with my ranger occasionally. Just need a little more go pedal.
