The stock bumpers are useless for towing on any truck...you can't put more then 200 lbs of tongue weight on ours. kinda scary, get the wrong guy to jump on it and its gone.

Those make it faster you didn't know?

I don't see how 3 young goats and a small trailer are over the 2000 lb limit of your truck.

I have not yet towed a trailer on my car but I was planning to buy one. But I don't want to buy a trailer which is metal and trailer which I think a heavy one. Because I don't want that my car will force if I will going to tow a heavy trailer. It can destroy my car, right?

I pulled my 1978 F-250 4x4 on a 20something foot trailer with my '93 4.0 Ranger. It did fine.

Notice...and it may be a matter of perspective, the outriggers are still down.

i saw that but still if the truck was that far back and it werepulling that i dont think the back wheels would be on the ground. and that trailer probably weights some where in the neighborhood of 2500-3500 pounds.
