I weigh in at 215 pounds. It drove basicly like normal you knew the load was there but it wasnt bad, stoping was noticably worse but driving smart takes care of that. I know I won't be able to tow a 6 ton monstrosity, or a 35 foot long 5th wheel, or a 3200 lb Lance behemoth. Services are subject to User Terms and limitations. Cargo and load capacity limited by weight and distribution.
The maximum towing capacity for both engines is 8,500 lb. The reason I ask is although I can't find much on the tow rating for my truck someone told me a while back that they thought with the 3. It now has 238,000 miles on the original 350 engine, no shocker if it makes it to twice that, have had no issues what so ever. Well basically, you should not feel it shift, even if you're slamming down on the pedal. If you're set on buying a bumper pull and the truck is a regular cab and a short bed, I would highly recommend investing in a load distribution hitch system sway bars. When I towed a friend's 2h bumper pull, you could hardly tell the trailer was back there. Services are subject to user terms and limitations.
I would ask them to clarify the model number or the drivetrain before going any further. Not only are they more stable to pull, but it's easier on the transmission since the truck would be pulling the weight directly from the chassis versus just the rear end bumper pull.

Why does heat get absorbed by the engine must be discharged?? In the 1998 Chevy 2500 series, both the four-wheel-drive and two-wheel-drive, extended-cab models with a 6.
You have no idea what driving situations people will get into. Its pretty much stock, but I am considering adding air shocks, a heavier duty radiator, and a transmission cooler. Driving time does not take into consideration conditions which may extend travel time such as weather, road work, border crossings, and rush hour traffic in urban areas. I would be more worried about gas economy, because those 350s really suck gas under load but they can handle the weight of more than a two horse. But you're going to have a qualified, experienced mechanic look over this truck as part of the purchase agreement, right? Depending on your topography the gear ratio may make all the difference to your enjoyment of this truck, and it's overall suitability, but it should meet your requirements, tow-wise.
Some devices require an adaptor or back cover. I'd say the 2500 could tow max of 8000-8500 with the same gear as it has a lighter chassis. Bahahaha, thanks for this, I burst out laughing! I wouldnt do that alot but it can do it. Rough shifting is a sign of issues. I have a 94 2500 diesel that I haul nearly 40 feet of horse trailer with, Trailer is steel, hauls 5 head if one is small and has small living quarters. The weight of passengers, cargo and options or accessories may reduce the amount you can tow.
We don't have a trailer yet, and the truck would be serving double-duty as hubby's side-job work truck he's an electrician , but we are definitely looking for a truck that can double as my hauling vehicle every now and then. I towed for years with a 2wd C2500 long bed, extended cab. Both regular and extended-cab models were four-wheel drive with front disc and rear drum brakes.

It now has 238,000 miles on the original 350 engine, no shocker if it makes it to twice that, have had no issues what so ever.
Now the truck can likely handle this and more. Yes, it can haul most horse trailers around easily, with no 'sway' issues. Now, the turbo's not set right, so that may be part of the problem, but can't be all of it. Also if it's a 4x4 subtract about 500lbs from your max towing. I find I actually use the 4wd more in wet grass or a really steep gravel road while hauling, so factor that in too.
Driving time does not take into consideration conditions which may extend travel time such as weather, road work, border crossings…. But hey, some people are sure they are the absolute best drivers in the world, until they find out, they aren't. Upgrading to the big block from the standard 5. Well basically, you should not feel it shift, even if you're slamming down on the pedal. OnStar links to emergency services. That is until after two days of heavy rain, two incompetants getting their huge motor homes stuck on the only lane out, and being at the bottom of a long hill in a hay field. I towed for years with a 2wd C2500 long bed, extended cab.
See for details and limitations. Cargo and load capacity limited by weight and distribution. I am not a professional. We had a '93 C3500 with the 5. No problems with that either. I'm not jazzed about the regular cab, but.
A higher tow rating is listed for pickups that tow fifth-wheel trailers. Some 6 cylinders, in the right application, get better gas mileage than a struggling, underpowered 4 cyl. I'd say the 2500 could tow max of 8000-8500 with the same gear as it has a lighter chassis. Also, to expand slightly on what Goforagallop said. The side driver, passenger or rollover was not tested.
