  1. Exactly. Start with that number and start subtracting cargo, passengers, anything you put in the truck and your pin/hitch weight. If you get to negative numbers then you've "exceeded" the capacity. Looks like this on a 3500 and these numbers are unique to each VIN. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  2. You said "safely", so you should be looking for a smaller trailer or a bigger truck. As someone who recently went though this (costly) process theres a ton of factors to consider. Weights add up fast when you start figuring how much the passengers weigh, all the crap you'll pack, a full gas tank (32 gals = ~200 lbs) and all other extras. Do the math for yourself and dont trust the salespeople. Theres about 1,000 threads on towing and a magnitude more opinions. To be safe, just go buy a 3500 duramax dually and get whatever trailer you want. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  3. Those are the vents for cooled seats. Best I can find is 23365181. Looks like it's the whole seat back though. Should be the same on any 2014+ Sierra/Silverado 1500 or 2015+ 2500/3500. Maybe a bone yard?

  4. Whatcha getting? 1500? 2500? 3500? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  5. On a 14, r65s will barely rub with the wheel turned to lock with a 2.5" lift with no extension and the wheel wells pinned back. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  6. Me neither. Last time I was at the dealer I scheduled an oil change for 8am. When I got there, there was a long long of people before me. After an hour, they said they were still waiting for a tech. And two hours, they said they were waiting for a different tech to bleed the brake lines, a service I didn't ask for. After three hours they said they couldn't find my truck. After four hours, they found they tech for the brakes but he had went to lunch. Still weren't sure where my truck was. At the five hour and 15 minute mark, my truck pulled into the service bay with the oil change and brakes bled. Told the service manager that 5 hours is stupid ridiculous to get an oil change. He gave me a 5% discount on the service and asked me to fill out a survey on their customer service. Needless to say, I'm done with that dealer. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  7. I have r65's on a 2014 sierra 1500 and the 2.5 lift kit. Barley rubs when the wheels are cranked all the way. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  8. So in your opinion, where does distance and elevation come into play. Wed like to make at least one trip from the gulf coast out to Colorado or Wyoming. Otherwise most of our trips wouldn't be more than a few hundred miles over mostly flat terrain. The engineers will never give us the margin of error or the impact of higher elevations.

  9. The plan was to definitely add one with a TT purchase. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  10. Got the specs from the RV dealers website. So I trust those, but just wanted to get a consensus from all you guys with first hand experience.
  11. If I did the math right, it looks like im about 1800 lbs under the max GCVW (without adding weight for camping supplies). Maybe I'll start looking at 2500's
  12. So the sales guy at the RV store says I can tow this trailer. Problem is, he wants to sell trailers, and I dont have a death wish (neither does my truck) The trailer is a 32', 7995 lb GVWR (6195 lb dry) with 604 lb hitch weight. I'd like to pull it with a Sierra 1500 crew cab RWD with the 5.3L, 3.42 gear ratio. Anybody have any experience with a similar setup? Any recommendations?
