Default Can my 2001 1500 handle this tow?

Ok so I have a 2001 Ram 1500 Reg cab short bed with 5.2 engine. I'm going to be using a friends trailer that he says weighs about 2500lbs and tounge weight of 400ish and I'll be using it to pick up a 1991 s10 reg cab shortbed and the engine and trans for it that aren't in the truck. I was going to put the truck on the trailer and engine/trans in the bed of my truck, but the friend letting me use the trailer thinks that will be too much for my truck. I thought I would be fine since once I pick up the truck going back to my house is only 30 minutes and the speed limits never go over 45 the whole way. So the ultimate question, can my truck handle it like I think it can?
