    I was pulling a 6x12 with a 16hp walker, 21" mower and a power rake with 5' sides on the trailer filled to the brim in the rain with my 94 ford 6 cyl.

    Back in the day we pulled 2 Lazers including trimmers and blowers on a 16 ft trailor and 3 people in an S-10 with a 4.3 These small engines really work. I've sence passed the truck along to my son and it's still running great.

    My mom has that truck and it pulls my 6x12 better than my F150 4.6 V8. I had to use her truck after a minor accident in mine. By the way, I would never suggest buying the 4.6 from ford. That is one sissified V8.

    you'll be fine. i haul all my equipment with a 98 dakota 3.9, i have engine mods and such (computer chip, headers, etc.) , but still, it hauls it fine. youll be in great shape. good luck!

    I've also found that the smaller the engine, the better it is to have a standard over an auto.
