    Default 1982 GMC 1500 pickup - Need GWVR and Tow Capacity

    Hello, I have recently imported a 82 GMC 1500 lwb pickup into Australia and I need the GVWR so I can register it.
    Also how much can it tow?

    Welcome to the Club!!!

    Try entering you VIN number and see if this website will be of any help to you. I know for my truck it gives both pieces of information you are asking about.

    Try this....it's a link to the owner's manual. I did not check to see if the info is there but it should be. You'll have to download the PDF file to view.

    Let me know if you have any problems....

    Sorry, those are the only two sources I know of where you could get the information for free. Because of the year of your truck, it's tougher to find.

    I'm going to move your thread away from the Member Intro section of our Forum and edit your title slightly, as this will get you more responses/opinions.

    Good Luck!
