To the OP, I tow my 2010 Ranger 2WD manual trans. 4 down.
Since you have a gasser like me, keeping the weight down for your toad is a great idea. (Lots of hills here in BC)
The Ranger tips the scales at 3500 pounds.
With it loaded up, it's never over 4000 pounds.
I am a bit of a cheap guy, and do all my own work, so I built my tow brackets and use a $60.00 Princess Auto tow bar.
I bought a used old style Brake Buddy that can be used in anything, just need to wire up the break-away switch.
Hope you get something that works for you. Just be sure to get a good brake system with a break-away on it.
If for some reason your toad comes un-hooked, you want it to stop!
