if you are within the weight limit then go for it. I would put a trans cooler on to prevent the trans from over heating. over heating the trans fluid happens when towing. a trans cooler should save the trans.


look in youe book to see the tow weightlimit. you should be fine. the trans cooler is a great idea and a small investment to save your trans
