    Towing 1200lbs.?

    Hello,

    My 01 M6 must have been painted, so its missing the sticker showing the towing capacity, can you help me out? I'm looking at towing a Seadoo
    (1175lbs. w/trailer) for maybe maybe 2.5 hours at a time. I have a truck, but would like another option. Bad idea?

    6 inch & 35" Procomps. It was all over the road, I just replaced the pitman arm, so hopefully it won't be so bad. And forget trying to keep an alignment!

    So, I guess it is the tounge weight that is the problem here, as apposed to the gross weight?????
