I've been trying to track down a Chevy or GMC with a 2.8L Duramax ... not the easiest thing to find right now. 


I have a deal available on a ZR2 that really has my attention.  BUT .....


My main use is towing mostly an enclosed trailer roughly 2,000lbs  .. .I know the ZR2 max is 5,000lbs.  


However, I have boat that totals close to 6,000 - 6,500lbs.  The deal with this is going over the limit for reasonably short hauls (never more than 20 miles roughly weekly).


Thoughts on going over the towing capacity?

Personally, I'd avoid it.  Even if its 20mi.  I'd go regular Colorado/Canyon 4x4 with the 2.8 that way you get more payload and 7600lbs tow rating.  


ZR2 suspension is quite soft compared to the standard trucks.
