well, you learned the hard way.
some accuse many of us of being "weight police" but we are only trying to alert new owners to the limits of their tow vehicles.
many v-6 tow vehicles' ratings are based on towing a boat and not a full height trailer with lots of air resistance that most v-6 engines have a tough time overcoming.
only the Ecoboost v-6 has the power to match even some diesels.
