Hauled a 15 ft open dual axle trailer with between 4,000-5,000lbs worth of carpet on it. I have a 3.0 ffv 4x4 with bumper hitch. I hauled it in 2wd (not like I have a choice because my front hubs dont lock) too. I have hauled it about 8 times for work so now my shocks are with out and real soft.

No tow package or anything, just a ball on the bumper.

The only trailer I have small enough for the Ranger, is a 2990#, 6X10, single axle tiltbed. Anything over that gross weight is supposed to have brakes. I have loaded my Rhino a few times, my yard tractor, a back blade for my larger tractor, and some building materials.
I've got a 2" receiver on it as well.
I don't think Rangers were ever designed to haul much of a trailer, I don't have any inclination of overloading ANY truck.
Safety first.
