    I am planning to haul/pull a big 700 Yamaha Grizzly in the bed and pull a trailer with 2 sleds with my 02 extracab with a 3.4 5spd 4x4. Its a 2 hour trip and I know I will be straining my poor little truck but its something I need to do.
    What do you guys think.

    Thanks joerussell610 that pic is reassuring lol.
    Im guessing it will all be close to 2500 pounds, Its about 200kms away from me with trailer and sleds and 200kms back with the bike so 400kms round trip. 1 tank and a half of gas guaranteed and in the slow lane to boot :(

    If you numbers are right my four banger could do it in the fast lane. I wouldn't worry.

    Should be okay power wise. Just give yourself extra braking space.

    You'd be fine. I use to pull 2 sleds on a sled bed trailer and all the gear with no problems. I have a 2.7L with automatic. I just couldn't try to pass anyone.
