Looking at moving up north couple questions

Hey guys I'm new here and actually new to owning a Ranger. I recently bought a 02 xlt 2wd with the 3.0 it has 135k. I'm looking at possibly moving from Louisiana to Maryland. It's about 950 miles. I would have to rent a Uhaul trailer. More than likely the 6x12 and it would be fully loaded ( I know I would have to hook it up with a tow package ) with everything from my apartment. Has anyone had decent luck with moving with a ranger? Any tips? I moved from md to La last year this time with my 95 3.0 4 runner with 230kbwith the same tow set up.

You should be fine, these Rangers can pull. Just go easy on the old girl these things are known for getting hot on long trips especially pulling something behind it on said trips. Give it breaks every now and then especially if you see the gauge going up. It's a good idea to get some anti freeze with you just in case, never ever EVER put water in your truck, any car for that matter, they make anti freeze for it for a reason, its alcohol based so it doesn't rust out the inside of the block or your freeze plugs causing them to fall out, water can do that as well as cause rubber hoses to expand and bust. I hope this helps, message me or respond here if you need anything else.

premixed anti freeze has water in
the "pure" antifreeze, you must mix with water for the best protection
