Good luck on your job search and move. A little more information would help answer your question such as 98. What are you referring to and what is the weight? You ask if the 4.7 is gonna strain but your info indicates a 5.2L, am I missing something here? Otherwise I would suggest looking on the door sticker of your proposed towing vehicle, which will give you the tow capacity. Then find out the weight of the trailer and load you plan on towing. If the total towing weight is less than the tow capacity, technically you are good to go but whether you will struggle depends on how much less (keep in mind there are some significant mountains around Denver). If at or more I would say no, don't do it. When you identify your tow capacity, subtract from that, all passengers, gear and drivers weight over 150 pounds. Since mountains are involved I typically like a 20% cushion.
