    Sure
    My buddy tows with his...I think it is a 2000. He has a 7Klbs trailer and I think his K5 is on 38s. Now it's not as sweet of a ride that a diesel will give you and hills can be a bitch but all in all you can doit as long as the hitch & trailer you are using is up to the task also.

    You can slowly. What's GTW on the 1500 by the way?

    Do you have tandem trailer brakes and the correct GVW rating?
    Tires rated for that kind of load/usage?
    Trailer WIDE enough to fit the K5 on?

    If everything checks out, then it's only a matter of how soon do you need to be there? :doah:

    I'd say sure but drive knowing your at the high end of what your 1500 truck is designed for/can handle.
