I have an 06 Mountaineer with the 4.6 3v and 3.55 gears. My 19 bh has a wet rating of 6200 lbs. I have no problem towing it. Just be sure to leave it out of o/d (like the manual says) and let that high revving ohc v8 eat. The 4.6 is a great motor. Millions of taxi cabs and police cars cant be wrong.

I used to tow a 6k lb. trailer with a 4.6L in my 2004 Explorer 4x4. It was fine on flat ground, but hills were not too pretty. In my Explorer, mountains would have been entirely out of the question with 6k lbs.
