I have been mowing lawns since about 11 years old and now just turned 16. I have a '99 Ford Ranger with the smallest 4 you can put in that thing with a 5 speed manual. Its great on gas though. The question that I have is that it says the gvwr is just about 5000 ibs. Now does that mean i can haul 5000 pounds or is that the total vehical towing. Can anyone tell me how much ibs i should be hauling?
