    Default Weight Ratings for the Suburban

    I'm trying to determine what all the weight ratings for my Suburban are. I've looked at the door sticker, and it gives me the GVWR and the GAWR, but I also need to determine what the GCWR is. I'm looking to pull my trailer and I am not quite sure if I'm in the weight limits. I also checked the owners manual for these ratings and haven't found it. I've found some scans of the old brochures for the truck on the net, but I don't have any definitive "official" numbers. The Suburban in question is a 1991 Chevy Suburban R1500 with the 5.7L; listed in my signature. It has the factory 3.08 rear gears and I think that's severely limiting my weight capacity compared to the same truck with say 3.73s. Thanks as always guys!

    1991 Chevy Suburban 1/2 ton 2WD w/ chevy SBC 350-3/4 ton drivetrain upgrade w/4.10 gears 200K miles
    2005 Saturn ION-2 Stock 277K miles
    1982 Bronco, 1993 Bronco (sold), 1971 M35A2 Deuce and a Half
