    90\'S GM TRUCK TOW RIGS

    Anyone know what the hauling and tow ratings for the mid to late 90's Chevy trucks was. I have been looking at some Crew-Cab, single rear wheel and dually set-ups. It looks for about $10k I can get a 97 Crew-Cab Dually with a 454. Since this is one fourth the cost of a new truck I would look forward to blowing the engine up to put a 502 big block in it. Just need to know what the capacity of it is (with single rear tires or dually). Interested in a slide-in Camper and towing the atv trailer or the Blazer on a car trailer behind it. Yes, I would love to get a new desiel truck but just don't want to put the much money into a tow rig.

    Thanks,

    my 96 extended cab dually K3500 with a 454 was 12,500 with 4.56 gears and 10,500 with 4.10 gears. thats with a 5th wheel, gooseneck or weight distribution hitch as per the book. the diesels in that era were 9,500 for the same setup. add 500lbs to the weight if its 2wd.
