what's the weight of the trailer? My 05 with the 4.7 was not up to the task of pulling our trailer down through Kentucky and Tenn. That's why I upgraded to the hemi outdoorsman with a tow rating of 10500 when I was heading down I77 through West Virginia and Virginia to North Carolina.Our trailer is an 09 Palomino Stampede "Lite weight" hybrid model 232 That weights about 6300 lbs loaded.Plus you have factor in the wind resistance heck you're pulling a box down the road.Unfortunately due to my experiences I think you may be underpowered
