Hi Mat ,I notice that you didn't get any serious replies to your tow
cap. question.You should find out if you have tow package and also what
your diff. ratio is,also wheel base.Then go to one of the travel-rv NGs
and there you will find more info than you need.I tried this group once
with a Q like yours and didn't even get the joke reply.
I've looked and looked for a tow number for my '88 K2500 (7200lbs) and
have found nothing. all my owners manual says to do is to look in a
15 year out of date GM publication.
I can tell you that my truck will pull a 5000lbs Bandit 150 chipper
with zero problems (other than the lousy surge brake setup on the
chipper). my truck is an 88 7200lbs K2500, 3.73 rear, 350 TBI and a
700R4. I will say though if you're towing anything more than 3,000lbs
or so, buy a brake controller, you'll need it.
