Stock tires are 31", so it's only a 6% increase. Should be OK as long as you don't pick a heavy-ass tire.

Auto or Manual?

I tried towing a utility trailer with a polaris rzr inside it, with auto, 35's and 3:73. It was awful. Would never do that again. I know that's a little different than your setup, but I would consider re gearing if you're towing a lot.
