question about towing capacity of a 2.5l

so i got the basic 2wd 4 banger and have been considering buying a little jon boat this fall/winter when prices drop.

dont know the specifics of the weight but it's pretty minimal

it's a 15 footer with a pretty small trailer. here's a pic. yall think my little truck can put it up/down a ramp? i'm iffy about it, my truck's got no uphill power.

should be fine as long as you don't lose traction on the ramp

I'd be worried if the ramp is a crappy ramp, with no 4x4. My girlfriends family, big time boaters, Always put their Diesel chevy 2500HD with posi in 4x4, and it's a good grippy ramp.

A super light, 4 banger 2x4 ranger might slip if not careful?
