What v6? probably not a full trailer and the mustang, but probably a dolly and it for a few miles would do. How far do you plan on doing?

what rear gears? im not a huge fan of towing with a dolly, 90miles would be too far to me. But towing with a full trailer, I don't think its rated for that much. Now it 'might' do it, depending on who you ask, just fine. But your trans and brakes probably wont appreciate it
