I looked at the owners manual and it said 1600lbs on towing. I figure with the trailer and the Polaris I'm at maybe 1700, but still.......

At what rpm?

I would defanantly just rent a Uhaul or find a bigger truck maybe from a friend? but bumbers suck ass towing if you but too much weight they will bend down I honestly don't know why they even have have them to where you can hook trailers up to them they are very weak on any trucks.
