Do I have enough truck to pull a 5th wheel trailer?

Asked by Jun 16, 2017 at 10:17 AM about the 2013 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE Ext. Cab 4WD

Question type: General

I have a GMC Sierra 1500.  Some specs I have are: 5.3L V8 SFI, w/6
speed auto transmission (w/ cooling system), 4WD Ext cab and standard
box.   It also has the heavy duty trailering package (code K5L and Z82),
engine oil cooler and high performance suspension package.  I am really
confused by what I have seen on the web. I have seen ratings from 6000 to
11000 pounds.  Is this enough truck to pull a 5th wheel trailer with a dry
weight of 8600 pounds.  Thank you so much for any help.

To be honest,your truck towing capacity is only 5500 and tops out at 6500,sure the truck will pull it but would be damaging to the drive train,
