233 or Larger with a Sierra 4.8L Crew Cab

Anyone have any experience with this set up? I would like to know what you think. How does your TT tow? What is your fuel mileage?

I don't know what your 233 means... but I have a 4.8L Chevy crew cab... I tow a 6000 pound 26' (31' overall length) with sway bars and it's fine unless the wind is really really nasty... and that would effect any combination

Thanks ridersfan...what is the measurement of the front height from ground to wheel well when your TT is hitched up? I think I am having tow problems as my TT isn't quite level when I tow.

I tow a 233s in the mtns of co with a tundra 5.7. Not quite the same but I have power to spare, even on the 12k ft passes. You should be fine. Might put a set of the ride rite airbags on it though (I did and love them).
