|would i be able to tow my vlx with a 4x4 ranger with the 4.0 liter v6. when i say tow i mean like 300 yards from my storage to the ramp. i just dont want the truck to float away if it slides down the ramp. lol. and its an automatic trans. what do you all think. thanks B. and i just want opinion on this specific truck and no others please.|
|if it were me. i would get a friend to do it for me or something. i wouldnt want to risk it|
|this is nuts right here. ford says a tow capacity of 6000#.|
|There would be no problem at all. The automatic will be better than the manual tranny and the FWD will get you up anything. |
It's much better than this.
|You will be fine. I had my Tige and towed it with a Nissan Frontier (3.3L). I towed that thing quite a ways, up hills. I had a stick too. ... One ramp we have is pretty steep. I would put it in 4L, otherwise, I couldn't get it going. It would stall. |
Since you aren't going far, you will be fine. The real problem, is the smaller trucks don't have the weight to stop the trailer on the highway. If something happens.
Just go slow.
|We pull our malibu response lx with a v6 4X4 explorer. The 4X4 makes a HUGE difference. Pulling the boat down the street is no problem, but pulling the boat up the ramp definately requires 4X4.|
|Bryan it will be fine.|
|I pull a Sanger V215 with a 4x4 4.0L Ranger all the time I also use it for boat shows and have pulled V237's and larger boats, stopping can be a treat in a panic situation, but I don't have far to go.|
