1400 mile trip

Getting ready to move back to PA from TX. My 88 has 200,000 on it I have started replacing items... rear main seal,valve cover gasket I still want to fix exhaust manifold leak and water pump, replace hoses and fluids. If I forgot anything let me know and I want to pull a small U HAUL trailer a 4x6 footer. What do you guys think would she make it?..... yes.... no ?

If it's that old I would probably install a Trans Cooler even if it is a relatively small trailer.

install a trans cooler and you will be fine the 4.0L is a strong motor, i put 700 miles a week on mine and as long as i keep up with the maintance everything works out fine.
