How much does the boat and trailer weigh?

Then check your manual, It will tell you.

I'd double check the weight on the trailer and boat, but I dont' really see a problem. I've seen a few of our rangers pulling the big uhaul trailers that looked like they were loaded up pretty heavy.

Sure . Look at the gvw of the boat and look at the trailer tow weight on the ranger , you should be below the limit on the ranger .
