Lock up converter/overdrive

Well, after seeing all these pics, my 2000 ex with the 5.0 should have no problem towing my 2,650 lb. mustang on an open center 18ft. trailer. The only thing I'm not sure of is if i need to have the lock up converter/overdrive disabled on the highway. I'll post pics soon.

I just used the hitch that's on the truck, the trailer had brakes on both axles.

My little trailer for the 4 wheeler I almost forget its back there till I look in the rear view and see the 4 wheeler staring at me.
These are crappy phone pics since I can't find my camera.

Here's one as we set out on our maiden voyage with the new (to us) camper this weekend. Still to add the Air Ride airbags and re-addjust the Equalizer hitch.

What engine do you got? AWD?

safety chains?
Yes They are just not in this picture. It was the first day of the set up before I bought cjains and towed.
Exactly how strong are the smaller size receiver hitches?

Here's my 2002 Ford Ranger Off Road version 4x4 with 4.10's and the 4.0L pulling my 16ft car trailer with my '88 Samurai on it. Pulled for the first time a week ago 100 miles with no problems. I was easy on take offs as my UPS guy has a '00 Ranger and just blew his tranny pulling his 3800lb boat and I was around 4500lbs (1800lb trailer and about 2700lb sammy).
