Asked by May 25, 2016 at 12:13 AM about the 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4 Dr LS Crew Cab SB HD

Question type: General

Stock truck, including suspension/tires K& N Mileage is 265K, the truck works perfectly, have a little blow by occasionally but have used a fuel
additive which seems to work very well. No transmission issues. Typical tow speed is 65-70-75MPH depending on highway and traffic.
Boat weighs 2600lbs dry + avg 230lbs fuel. Besides going to a lighter trailer any suggestions. Not sure if a rear end gear change will help??
Thanks in advance

Man if you were in my area towing that fast they would write you a hefty ticket. Any way with a 6.0 in a 2500HD you shouldn't have any problems towing a boat as light as that, unless something is actually going wrong.
