NEED Some HELP HERE

OK guys I need some help here,

You all know it's not very often I ask or need a favor but I do now.

As some of you my or may not know my big Bronco
is in Southern MD at Conrads undrivable.
I have a trailer here to bring it home but my tow vehicle
has fallen thru.
For reasons some of you know I can't spend the time there
to fix it and drive it home if I leave it I'm afraid Jr is gonna
try to sell it off for beer money or something.
Low on cash as usual I need someone with something to
pull 5,000lbs back to my house.
Someone that lives in my area would be great

Thanks Shaun,
I have the receiver Shaun but I pretty sure it would be rather hvy for your truck, not that I don't
think it wouldn't pull it stopping it is a bigger issue and I've seen too many bad things
happen with overloads.

The Liberty could pull it too but we ain't goin there.

Dave I have had several large head stones in the truck before and havent had a problem. In fact I just pulled my brothers jeep cherokee about two weeks ago with no problem. I have also towed and hauled more with an 87 4 cylinder dakota and had no problem. Just amatter of taking my time and maintaining distances to stop safely. In fact I jut had the rear brakes replaced. I also checked the owners manual and I can tow 5000# safely.Also what size is the reciever and is the trailer a 7 way or 4 way?

Dave I have also towed a vault cart with a vault on it. That weighs about 8000 pounds.Granted it was not with the f150 but I have experience with tall heavy narrow loads.

I could always pull it back in Tuesday and tighten down the bolts. It isn't that big of a deal.
