If you look the height of the 2007 and up 1/2 ton 2wd is the same as the 4wd version. GM did a great job in the spring department on the new body style trucks.
Thats good news, the only towing I have done for right now was up to the dealers to get hitch done and then drove home and it was about 35 miles round trip. The hitch work and the truck did a real nice job. My truck is the heavy 1/2 ton extended cab with the 6.0 gas engine, heavy duty 4 speed auto trans and a 4:10 rear. I am towing a 34' Rockwood 8314ss. I have had the truck for about 6 months now and it has been setting, It only has 1,680 miles on it. Thank for the positive feed back, I can't wait to start towing with it.
