Sounds right to me. I knew my truck was somewhere over 5500 lbs, just hadn't got my manual out yet to check.

well thanks guys i do have a (receiver class 3) hitch from ford. and i have decided to go with the covered trailer and use my expo to tow it. after all the math its like 1250# for the trailer then each quad is like 400# give or take plus the bike is 270#. hell that right there is over my limit so the wife has given me here expo to drive with the trailer! and if you add in my fat a$$ well lets just say it ain't worth the risk lol but thanks all

seems you've already come to a decision and i think you are doing the smarter safer thing, i would just like to add in my 2 cents

i've got two rangers, a 98 4x4 on 31s with 3.73s and a 3.0 auto, my trailer is a single axle 5x8 weighs around 400lbs, have towed it several times with 2 dirtbikes on the back, towed a polaris sportsman 400, and towed about 1000lbs of scrap metal, truck was obviously slower with the extra weight but had no problem cruising in OD, and suspension wise i could hardly tell there was a trailer back there
my other ranger is a 99 2wd, coilsprung on stock tires (25in?) 3.0 auto with 3.73, i've done a couple short trips with the trailer on that truck, had a snowmobile on it (400lbs?) and i hated it, power and brakes were fine but since the truck is lighter than the 4x4 it seemed like the trailer pushed the back of the truck around on the road, and when i got home to my iced over driveway forget about it, jack knifed and shoved my truck into a snow bank, hope to never tow with that truck again, the heavier 4x4 just handles it so much better
