Factory tow hitch

I have a 98 f150 with the tow package. Will the tow hitch on it be strong enough to tow a trailer with a tj on it.

Thanks Rob

Tow mine all the time. I have F150 FX4 with factory hitch and pull 16 foot trailer with 4200lb cj7.

Balance your Jeep on the trailer, so that it has no more than about 250lb or less than 100lb on the tongue. Note balance in the photos. A heavy tongue will put more stress on the hitch, plus drives "funky".
