If you look at the chart at the top of the towing forum, you will find that your truck is capable of towing 7,700 Lbs by Fords recommendations. The stock bumper will only handle 5000 Lbs. If you take at look at Florida towing laws, you will see that you need trailer brakes for anything over 3000 Lbs.
Therefore, get yourself a brake controller, a proper frame mounted receiver, don't add too much extra gear and you will be fine. I tow 4500 - 5000 lbs with my 98 4.2 5-speed supercab and it does just fine. I have 194,000 kms on it and have never had a problem. Just remember that you're not in any drag races and you will be fine. GlennMc.
