Default Max Tow Capacity Z-71 Suburban V-8

Looking at different boat options for 05 and have a lease until Spring 06 cant afford different boat and truck at the same time.

I have Z-71 package Suburban 2004. V-8 nothing special. Trying to figure out Max Tow Capacity, the manual is about a clear as mud. I have been told if you have an accident and your over weight the insurance for boat and truck are not valid

Help needed ---

If the news is bad anyone want to take over a lease on a Z-71

What are your lease details? Details of the truck? I have a lowly Ford Exploror and am need of a tow vehicle upgrade. Used to live in Belleview MI. (worked for Visteon, hence the Explorer)

If it's a 1500 (half ton) Suburban, I believe that the max tow rating is 7000 lbs. It should be in your manual- you need to know what rear axle ratio that you have.

I think the newer ones might be 7500, however coming from experience, you don't want to do long tows with it. It struggles at times with that much weight.

3.73 will be less towing capacity.

Look on your build sticker on the glovebox (I think).

If you see GT4= 3.73 rear.
If you see GT5= 4.10 rear.

Local towing within a couple hundred miles or so you'll be fine. But you would'nt want to tow it to the west coast, or through any mountains.
