    Fixed your post Nathan. There is no such thing as a GMT1000 and the NNNNBS crap is ridiculous :nono:

    For GM 1500,2500,3500,.....

    it's all about the weight that they can haul.

    1500 = 1/2 ton
    2500 = 3/4 ton
    3500 = 1 ton

    The towing abilities are covered by the GCWR (Gross Combined Weight Restricted) that is the maximum the truck, trailer, payload, fuel and passengers can weigh together. This number is greatly influenced by individual configuration. Maximum tow ratings are decided by the individual configuration of the truck and subtracting the weight of the vehicle from the GCWR.

    In general:

    1500 has a GCWR of 13,000-15,000 pounds and a tow rating of 6,000-10,000 pounds.

    2500 has a GCWR of 19,000-20,900 pounds and a tow rating of 12,500-14,000 pounds.

    3500 has a GCWR of 21,000-29,000 pounds and a tow rating of 14,000-17,500 pounds.
