Even if the weight is under the 7k max rating, it's not as much as a "Can it do it?" as a "Should you do it?"
If weight is lower than 6500, it could do it but that thing is pretty big and has A LOT of cross section to catch wind. That's a pretty long trip through some windy areas with something like that. Like someone said, if you're not in any hurry it would be better but doing anything close to the max isn't necessarily a good idea even though it technically can do it.

Also the v6 has a built in trans cooler iirc. Forgot if its separate or built into the radiator.
