Might want to check your hitch, looks to be on the driver's side a bit. I know they make rolling hitches for short beds, but side to side...I have got to see that, lol.

I still say mine beats most







6 ply tires, at 65PSI looked under inflated... with 1 inch before bump stops.... the hitch, is for a 2 5/8 ball.... Lets just say, I now know what a 2wd drive version of my rear end looks like.

It also pulled this boat, off the lawn, thruogh 8inchs of mud, and onto the driveway... a feat EVERYONE told me, my truck could NOT handle.

If the ramp is wet with my old tires I couldnt go anywhere in 2wd, with the new ones its fine. But because the boat wieghs almost 10k I use 4lo just to help the drivetrain out.
With a wakey boat 2wd will be fine.

You dont even notice your pulling anything with 1 big Jet ski, so two would be nothing for a ranger

Just set the trailer on there to see what it'd do, didnt even attempt to move it.
I do know that my 01 4.0 4wd will pull that boat... just not as smoothly as the Powerstroke :)
