    What\'s the maximum tow rating??

    I was cleaning my Jimmy and noticed a sticker covered by grease on my tow hitch, it said 10,000 max tow load. So how much can I tow with a 350/th350 and 3.08 gears, max and safely.

    The tag you seem on your hitch is the maximum load for the hitch assembly only, but the towing rating of you K5 will be post on a tag that is on the side of the drivers side door just above were the assembly for the locking device. I have a 86 K5, with a 305ci, TH700R4, NP205, & 3.08:1. the towing capacity if 6100lbs
