Re: 4.3

<font face="Comic Sans MS">That'll vary with the gearing you have, with the tires you have, and other such things... I would say somewhere in the vicinity of 5000-6000lbs but with a light weight truck like these S series it's not a good idea to tow that much, the load will be shoving you all over the place...

Re: 4.3

The 2WD S-series with a 4.3 and auto are rated highest at 6000 Lbs. The 4x4s less because the extra weight of the 4wd system.
