Question: A 2013 Toyota Tacoma 4 x 4 - see details below

I just bought a 2013 Toyota Tacoma access cab pickup truck (4 x 4). The truck I owned previously was a full size Toyota Tundra. I had a small 7' 4" Western "Suburbanite" plow on it. My question is can I put this small plow on the Tacoma, which only has a 4-cylinder engine ? I don't want to overtax the engine or transmission, or ruin the front end. I only plow my driveway and a few friends and family. Can I do it safely ?
