2002 Chevy 2500HD Duramax with Allison Transmission, Extended Cab, 8 foot box, 3.73 axle ratio and 4 X 4.

Maximum Trailer weight 12,000 lbs. Maximum hitch weight 1,500 lbs.

This is the capacity of all 2001-2002 GMC/Chevy 2500HD and 3500 with the Duramax Allison in all configurations whether long or short box, two or four wheel drive, standard, extended, or crew cab. The Gross Combined Weight Rating for these vehicles is 22,000 lbs.

The only towing specs. that change is the maximum fifth-wheel weight. Mine is 15,100 lbs.

A crew cab 4 X 4 long box maximum fifth-wheel weight would be 14,900 lbs and a regular cab long box 4 X 4 would be 15,500 lbs.

All Duramax Allison 2500HD and 3500 trucks are rated to pull 34 foot Airstreams sideways up hill.

88 R20 454 FI 3/4 suburban 3.73. As equipped it is rated 9,500k (course the hitch is only rated 9200) Combined GVWR is 16k. WIth 4.10 and a better hitch on the truck it will do 10.5k. Same engine in regular cab truck is rated 12k with 4.10. Pay a towing penelty for the weight of the vehicle.

Hey Toaster.

What do you think my tow rating would be if I placed 3.73s in my 30 spline 8.5 diff (minus the cooling mods I already did)? Right now the car is rated at 5k, but I was hoping adding 3.73s might push me to the 7k mark.

I just got the GM 3.73s, ABS reluctor, Eaton 400lb posi, master rebuild kit, etc.
