2003 Mazda Tribute Tow Capacity?

Do you guys happen to know what the towing capacity is for a 2003 Mazda Tribute 3.0 4wd? Im deciding if it is worth throwing a hitch on for some light towing? Small Bass Boat, Pop Up camper, small home depot trailer, etc.....

The factory tow package includes an engine oil cooler, trailer wiring harness, and the hitch itself. All automatic Escapes and Tributes came with a transmission cooler (except the Hybrids).

If you are approaching the tow package rating, I think you should be fine with a good synthetic oil, changed before and after you tow. You can check at forums to see what their flavour of the month is - they tend to like German Castrol and Pennzoil Platinum.
