lobster,

when i purchased my trailer, i had an auxliary transmission cooler installed, which helps keep the tranny temps down when traveling. they're usually a few hundered dollars. might be something to consider.

We have a GMC Canyon with the 5 cyl engine. We pull a small flat trailer with either two quads on it or a Rhino. I would estimate around 2000 lbs total including the trailer. It struggles to pull it and using OD is totally out of the question.

Congratulations on the first trip. You should be backing it like a pro with just a few trips.
