2006 gmc 1500 4.8 8ft bed how well will it tow a 5000lb trailer

If it has the transmission cooler, it will tow it just fine- look in your glove box- there will be a white or silver tag with lots of 3 digit codes- they are in alphabetical order, and the code KNP means you have a factory transmission cooler. It is located behind the Emblem on your front grille. If you don't have a transmission cooler, you can get one installed. I hope this helps.
