That is definately an 89+ model year Bronco II.

My dad hauled 6 1500 pound round bales of hay on a trailer behind is 2.8 auto shortbed ranger.

If you dont over load the hitch, the bII will pull it.

Friday night I just pulled a small garden trailer about 5x6 or so, but i had it full of band equipment, several hundred puonds of gear, didnt feel a thing, except when I loaded the trailer wrong and put the heavier stuff in the front rather than over the axels, it started to sway around on me sometimes. But other than that I wasn't even aware I had a trailer on the back. Not that it was as heavey as another vehicle, but still.

Like was said before, it's all about the tounge weight. I pulled a full sized Caprice with a chevy cab on top of it to the junk yard with a tow bar, no probs.
