Thanks for your input, Candymancan!

Total weight of the trailer will be around 3500 lbs, so I hope I'll be OK.

And by the way the engine doesn't feel as powerful as I imagined it would, so trying to keep up with traffic with 3500 lbs could be a challenge in itself. Even my 2011 2L diesel estate seems to have a lot more pulling power...

I would honestly get a auxillery cooler for the transmission before you start towing.. Wouldnt tow without one..

The Inline 6 isnt a quick engine, but its reliable and torqy 225-230 ft lbs of low rpm torque. The nickname for the engine is 4.slow instead of 4.0. When towing you dont have to keep up with traffic, it isnt a race. Never go over 55mph towing anyway, and turn overdrive off.

if you have a factory hitch, you probably already have the aux. tranny cooler ...

Love this forum already...

How do I know if I have the aux. tranny cooler? Where is it, and what does it look like?
