I'm trying to determine how much I can safely pull. I've see lots in the forum regarding v6's with the towing package but very little for when they don't have it. My vehicles's GVWR=2472kg (5438.4 lbs) which I got the driver's side door. My manual basically breaks towing capacity down into those with the package (6500lbs) and those without (3500lbs). Does this really mean my truck has the same towing capacity of the 4 cyl 4x2 or am I missing something. I would think the v6 could pull more but not as much as the model with the towing package. I'm a carpenter and have carried a number of tools (200lbs) in the back. It seems my springs are getting tired so I may have to add another leaf to the springs. I was thinking of just getting a smaller 6 x10 cargo trailer and emptying the bed but I'm not sure if this is possible. Not looking to tow long distances just from site to site in the city. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
