Toad

I found a great deal on a extend can Chevy 1500 pick up. It weighs 5200. Anyone pulling anything that heavy with a 340 HP. Yes I know it is a 5000 lb tow limit and I also know that the hitch is the same on both the 340 and the 360 HP. The back axel will not be overloaded and the GVCW will not be over. So has anyone done it and how did it pull?

Yes it's a 4x4. They are very easy to set up. No fuse to pull and you don't need to leave the key in the ignition. All you do is hook up the tow bar but the transfer case in neutral lights plug in and go. Much easer than my Enclave. I want to have them both set up to tow flat. I looked at jeeps the Wrangler and that is lighter but I really like the truck and the deal. Still thinking we will see.
