I know, a little on the heavier side, but I am still within my limits. I never tow with water in the trailer. It might only go up a couple hundred pounds with gear so it really isn't that bad! Thanks for the reply!

Love the Tahoes! Used to have an '05, till it was stolen, stripped for parts and burnt to a crisp! OUCH! Great tow vehicles though! 6.2L, is that not rare for a tahoe? Thought that was only an option for suburbans?

Nice mods! Similar to my set up, I find that the truck doesn't have to work nearly as hard now previous to the stock set up. Breathes a little easier and has a little more umpf from stop or needing to accelerate on the highway!

My signature pretty much says it, except wet weight. CAT scale says I'm right at 95,000 pounds.

95,000 lbs!!!!! That may be a little over the limit even for an F350
