your truck has a max towing capacity of 10000lbs, that is properly equiped, if you go to a trailer/RV shop they will look at your truck and tell you what, if any, mods you will need to do, IE: bigger tranny cooler, helper springs, cooling, etc. I personaly find the GM900 line very nice to tow with, if you had the duramax, you would be amazed at what it can do... but back to your truck, As seeing I dont know what HD opinions you have on it, I would recommend that you take it in, remember change your oil before you start towing, And if you are going to be towing alot, I would recommend you put Dual exhaust on the truck, it will help your truck breath better and it will help with the heat, you will run alot hotter when you are towing. duals will also help with a bit of fuel mileage. Best of luck

Hi, The 2010 Kia Rio5 LX wagon is the lower of two trim levels for the wagon, but equivalent to the second of three trim levels because it would be the second trim level for the sedan. It has a 1.6 liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 110 horsepower. =================== used cars for sale
