No problems at all. Even a 4cyl. w/manual trans. is rated to pull over 1600 lbs.

I tow our 3500 pound boat and trailer many times during the summer. Rangers will pull it, the hard part is getting it stopped if you don't have trailer brakes (which we do). I have never been impressed with the braking ability of my truck even when it is empty and adding a heavy trailer just makes it worse.
