The V8 H3T [under the Alpha badge] can tow up to 5,900 lbs, so I can imagine it would be able to handle a trailer with a samurai on it.

A light trailer and a weight distributing hitch would be all that you would need. A nice brake controller of course.

The H3T is built on the GMT900 frame system, same as the 1500-2500 silverado/sierra trucks, and shortened to accomodate the 6in shorter overall length.
6100 GVWR 1031 payload
5900# towing

2010 Siverado
7000 GVWR 1652 payload
10400# towing

H3T should handle your trail rig without issue, but I would recommend the wd hitch and must have good brake controller.

Do you want a quote?

I've got an H3t.

It is available with an aluminum block 5.3 that tows just fine.
