It all depends on the GVW of the truck. It is located in the drivers doorjam on the sticker

I've hauled a BobCat in mine numerous times, which weighs more than 2000 lbs. I've towed a travel trailer that weighs 10,000 lbs+ a few times through the mountains. Neither seemed to matter much to the truck, I was impressed.

I have a 1998 half ton supercab XLT 5.4 with the 4x4OffRoad pkg and heavy duty axle.

It must sleep about 38 people!! Sounds more like he was towing a broken down motorhome. HEE HEE
It was also 1500lbs over the 8500lb distributed weight of the hitch too.

Forrd says to tow no more than 7400lbs with the truck that you have!!!!!!!!!

Well, I sure wouldn't do it on a regular basis, but the truck did it just fine. The trailer was 33 feet, a luxury model and heavy. I once towed a 24 foot trailer with a 4Runner, it pulled it just fine but in an emergency there would have been hell to pay I bet... At any rate, the 5.4 is impressive that way. It doesn't really feel all that powerful (and really you can blame that on the transmission - if you want to feel how a transmission *should* feel drive a Toyota Tundra, or any V8 Chevy...) but as you load it up it seems to make the needed power and just goes. Really has impressed me a few times.
