To answer the question the 97 4.2L V6 has better horsepower(not by much), but far less torque. What you want is the 300 I6 from 96 down. It has more torque than the 302 and will pull like a dream. I owned a 88 f150 2wd and it towed a 18ft boat no problem, a car trailer took a little longer to get up to speed. Lets face it, you wont be drag racing with a trailer on a tow vehicle, but it is nice to get to safe hwy speeds in a short time.
