I recently lost my tow vehicle in an auto accident and haven't replaced it
yet (It was a week after I purchased a new family car). I need to move my
'87 Coleman Chesapeake 2 miles to a storage facility for a month or two
while renovations are done to my house.
My buddy has a ball on the step bumper on his 2002 Ranger but I'm not sure
how much that can handle. The owners manual lists maximum capacity's but I'm
sure that's with a real hitch. Anyone know what the bumper can handle?
I've seen ratings stamped in the metal of some bumpers, right near the
hole. Have you looked for that?
2002 Ford Ranger Owner Guide:
"The bumper has a 907 kg (2,000 lb.) trailer weight and 91 kg (200 lb.)
tongue weight capability."
