    i dont see why you wouldnt have a problem. as long as it isnt a 4 cylinder.

    i have a 98 dakota v6 3.9 in it, and i can pull my 7x16 dual axel trailer just fine, its harder to stop, but it works.

    It should be fine. You won't be able to set any speed records, but it should be fine. I'd recommend trailer brakes. If not, just be really careful with your stopping distances.

    Hell I pulled a 12 foot trailer with a 1978 toyota corolla 4d station wagon. It looked like an absolute goat roapin'.

    Know your limitations, go slow, take care and be careful. You'll be fine.
