Can you tow it.....sure. Can you tow it safely
without exceeding your gross vehicle weight rating, the rear axle weight rating, and maybe even the gross combined weight rating, as well as stressing mechanical parts ...........probably not.
I presume the 5.4L is a typo, and that would be a 5.4L. But even with that, you have not indicated what cab configuration you have, along with bed length (there are 2 short bed lengths), towing and payload options as well as your final drive ratio. The 2010 5.4L engine 4x4 trucks are rated anywhere between 7700 lbs. and 11,200 lbs.
BTW, welcome to the forum.
