It's not so much the engine and the cooling that limits your towing ability, it's the frame, rear end, rear suspension, and how heavy the truck is. I can tell you that 6000lbs will probably pull an S10 around like a toy, should you get into a windy area or run into a sway problem.

Now that's not to say that if you take it easy, get a weight distributing hitch, sway control, a trailer with brakes on it, and keep a real close eye on everything that it CAN'T be done... I just wouldn't want to be on the road anywhere near you.

Good luck.
