After my little "incident" in 2001 (rolled the Range Rover three times 
and the trailer with another Range Rover aboard two and one half times, 
completed the trip by helicopter) my wife won't let me tow with anything 
less than the one-ton Ford.  I am piecing together another Rangie for a 
daily driver and the first thing she said was, "Don't even think about 
towing with it!!"
