I tend to agree with your "instincts".
Assuming that the 4,000lb weight figure was taken from the yellow sticker (Ship Weight) on the side of the trailer, you now have to add the weight of the battery and any other RV dealer added items......, then there's all that cargo one needs to go camping. IMO depending on your loading habits a loaded Jay Feather 221 can approach it's GVWR.
Your Ranger's 6,000lb Tow Rating is based on it's "Curb Weight", which means that the sum total weights of the Ranger's options, passenger weight, and cargo weight get subtracted from the published 6,000lbs: http://www.jaycoowners.com/showthrea...uot-Tow-Rating
So depending on your loading habits the Ranger & Jay Feather 221 combination "may" be doable (TV will be at maximum limits), but IMO won't be an ideal combination.
