We now tow a 2012 Ford Edge FWD (empty weight about 4200 lbs.) behind our 2012 31DS, and it poses no problem. We used to tow a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4x4 (empty weight about 4600 lbs.) and it was a bit of a "tail-wags-dog" issue but not terrible. It looks to me like the 2007 Explorer 4x4 would run about 4600 lbs., so you may be pushing it some.
For both we use a Blue Ox Adventa II (they now sell the Aventa LX instead) rated at 10,000 lbs., Blue Ox base plate kit, and a RViBrake 2 brake system. We are happy with all of these.
