You must have the c6p (8600GVW)option since the bigblock (290HP) didn't come in the regular 2500(7200). It will depend on your rear end ratio. Tow ratings are give as GCW (gross combined weight). So you deduct the weight of the loaded truck and what is left is what you can tow. Range from 13000lbs with a 3.42 rear end to 17000lbs with a 4.56. Light by today's standards but heavy duty at that time.
