Default 1997 5.2 Ram Purchase

Hoping to ask a few questions about towing with an older ram.

I had a 2008 Ram 5.7 2X4 a year ago and used it all the time to haul stuff. One time hauled a large uhal trailer with a 1968 gto on the back. This was a 2 hour trip and with the tow option on it pulled and handled well.

Unfortunately when gas went sky high ant I was just driving 8 miles to and from work I traded it in for a newer charger.

About 4 months after that my house was hit with a tornado and man what I would have given to have that truck back. Ever since I have been deciding what to get.

I would love another newer truck but my budget will not allow it. I have found a 1997 Dodge Ram 4x4 with a 5.2 engine. about 110k miles on it with an aftermarket air intake. I can get the truck for $3250.

I am about to have to haul my GTO again and pick up another car looking at a 6 hour trip (3 and 3 back)

Would a 1997 Ram 5.2 4x4 handle this? Car I am picking up is a 69 Coronet and weights about 3.7k. i had planned to use another large uhal trailer.
