OK, then find out what the towing capacity of THAT
truck is (it varies depending on options). That's
an absolute max. 25% lower or better would be
better.

And remember that all the stuff adds up. My boat
weights 935 pounds. Boat, motor, trailer, gas,
battery, anchor, tanks, weightbelts, etc., and it's
right around 2000 pounds. Better than double the
boat weight.

My truck is rated at
3500 pounds towing capacity and it's no sweat.
But I've towed 3500 pounds with a (different)
3500 pound capacity truck, and it was marginal.
It was a two-time deal (towing my wife's 1968
Firebird to the paint shop and back).
