Default A towing Q...

I recently purchased a 04' 4.0 fx4 for my son. Was wondering if it will tow a 2400# ski boat plus trailer. Did a search but could not find what I was looking for. Thanks so much..

Just remember, you can pull it with no problem. However, unless your trailer has brakes (most in that size range don't); stopping will be more difficult because of the weight of the tow vehicle.
