Kenny,
I really do not know. The book with the truck is just the standard Chevy book with the standard Duramax add on. Nothing special from Chevy about what it can tow.
Our Outback is not real heavy, even though it has a frame to take the ATV inside it. It replaced a Keystone triple axle Raptor that was heavier than a dead preacher. I had a 2004 Ford 1 ton 6.0 diesel and the Raptor was really a bit more than I wanted when I had 3 ATV's and gas in the gas station and fuel in the on board generator. I weighed it on the free logging scales here in Oregon but do not remember the exact weight, but it had to be very heavy. That was a heavy unit. The Ford struggled on the grades and sometimes got down to 30-35 MPH with the pedal to the metal. So, I sold the Raptor, sold the Ford, bought the Chevy, and bought the little Outback. Works a lot better.
I would not have tried the Chevy with the Raptor. I would have thought it was too heavy for that gear set.

Kenny,
I just googled the Raptors and the one like ours in the factory specs was 15,900 dry and capacity for another 3,900 in gear and fluids. So, our Raptor could have been around 18-19,000. So, more than twice our Outback, maybe 2.5 times the Outback.

Kenny,
Of course you are right. At first, I was confused at your post because I was thinking 3:73 and it wasn't until I went back and saw I had typed "2.73" instead of "3.73" in the original post like I meant and thought I had typed. My bad. Better proof read better. My truck does not have 2:73 gears, it has 3:73 gears. Still, most of the pickups I have had have been 4:10/4:11 gears and so the 3:73 seemed low to me and the truck was special ordered. Sorry about that. Now I see why you were skeptical.

Does the Titan fit under the bed like the stock tank or does it go in the bed, I have a 2016 F350 Crew Short Box and would like a tank that doesn't void mfg warranty as mine only has 2300 miles

I think he said it replaced the smaller tank under the truck.
