    Loaded or unloaded? I certainly wouldn't want to do it for a long trip but just a little ways to the ramp(assuming you have brakes and all) it should be able to do it.

    does your truck have the factory tow package? if it doesn't then the answers is no. If it does then you should be fine, but might have trouble on the boat ramp if tractions is low.

    I have a Prerunner with the factory tow kit and I'd tow it for short distances but I wouldn't do it for long trips.
