2500 pounds of Military tires+trailer too much for a '13 v6 DC?

Curious. Need to move them about 100 miles from Waxahatchie, TX to Fort Worth, TX.

Throw them on a trailer and go for it. I've hauled double the weight double the distance without a problem. Just watch your speed and the traffic/idiots around you and you'll be fine. What part of Ft Worth you going to? In my opinion route selection is key to having a good towing experience. I try to avoid bad areas of traffic if possible so as to not put myself in bad situations.

you should be fine, just avoid rush hour...I ran 2700 miles last week on a trip to DFW, not in the Taco, but in the Subaru WRX:-)

On the other hand, a trailer with brakes would be really nice.
