Towing a horse trailer with a 1998 4.6 V8
I've got a friend who has to move her horse from where it is at now but has no truck to do it, but has a horse trailer, I am not sure of anything else except for the fact that it is dual axle. Sorry about that, and that it is just one horse. I have a Drawtite receiver hitch on my truck that is rated according to the hitch at 2.5 tons. I am pulling it with my 1998 F-150 4.6 Liter V8 Automatic Tranny with the axle code "19" that I took off of the driver's door jamb. It does not have the factory tow package. My question is, do you all think that my truck could handle towing this trailer in the current configuration? If you are not sure, what do you have questions about? I am not sure about the gear ratio on the truck, and it does not have the 7 pin trailer connector, just 4 pin. Please post your comments as soon as possible. Thanks so much.
