Default How much have you towed?

So i have a 4.0 sohc 4wd manual with a 4.10 and the most i pulled was a 2500 lb toyota pickup down the road for a couple miles pretty damn easy! I was wondering what to expect or hear what these trucks can do. Especially the manuals!

the most ive towed was a 5400# 22 foot boat. truck pulled it around town fine and launched the boat great but i wouldnt want to take it on any long trips pulling that much wieght. i regularly pulled my 6x12 enclosed trailer loaded down with quads and dirt bikes, usually around 3000# and the truck handled it great.

I've got the old school OHV, I towed a trailer with all my junk cross country with all my junk. These are capable trucks.
