You can tow anything that weighs 5000 lbs or less..........and that included the weight of the tow bar. Best to actually take the vehicle to a truck scale and weigh it if you think it is close to that or are you just shopping for something? Please get back to me if you need more input here as all follow ups are included in our fee.
