Towing a mazda B3000

Hello all and thanks in advance for any information I get. I have a 1989 E350 ford chassis "Chinook". I would like to tow a 2002 Mazda B3000 2wd with manual tranny four down. According to the Remco charts it is ok with no modifications. Weight wize it is close to the limits of the chinook but within them. My concern is mostly regarding the transmission of the chinook. I don't want to push the limits if it may cause too much stress on my older unit. Does anyone have any good advice concerning this or links to more information on this topic.
Thanks again! kcyeakel

I would flush the trans and put in a good synthetic fluid along with adding a larger trans cooler. I had a F350 diesel dually pulling a large 5er that overheated the trans the first time I backed it up and flushed it with synthetic and added a large trans cooler and didn't have any more problems.
