    I did a quick google search Sierra K 1500 5.7 GROSS VEHICLE WEIGHT RATING but no real luck.

    The numbers you mention-6615 lbs seem dead on. You 4x4 extended cab would weigh about 5000-5200 lbs before adding fuel and cargo- a bed load of 1200 lbs seems about right for a 4X4. They always have slightly less carrying and towing capacity that the 4X2s because of the extra 200-300 lbs of 4x4 "stuff"

    Have you tried to remove the paint from the door tag?Maybe try a tiny bit of paint remover-very carefully of course, so you don't destroy the tag??

    My 1998 2wd 1500 Suburban has a 6800 lb GVWR, so 6615 lbs for your is certainly very close to correct.

    You should reword and repost this question WITH THIS HEADING
    "GVWR DOOR TAG WEIGHT ON 1993 SIERRA K1500 5.7"

    Someone here certainly has a 93 4x4 1500 chevy or GM-same same. They will take a look at their door and give you the answer. It is probably about the same for all of that particular body style model.

    Try to uncover that door tag- your DMV(DEPARTMENT OF MOTOR VEHICLES) will probably accept that, but will require some sort of "proof" for anything else you find.Don't guess you have the owners manual?
    The glove box will have lots of "codes" one of them might give a hint on GVWR.

    n If the door tag is just painted over, you can probably lift the paint with careful application of some sort of paint remover.

    CAREFUL IS THE TRICK. Apply it with a Q-tip-leave it on, once it is slightly soft, gently scrape it off with thin wood of plastic, and hose it with water or whatever the bottle instructions say to use.

    You are trying to lift/soften the paint, while not destroying the more or less paper or plastic "sticker" on the door.

    Work slowly, and start somewhere well below the door tag so you get a feel for how your paint remover is going to work.

    Plan B for me would be to hunt for a "fake" or reproduction door tag.Hunt USA sites for it.There are reproductions for EVERYTHING having to do with cars since people are constantly restoring old vehicles.
    You do have to be careful with this, since your DMV might consider it illegal.I would put the new sticker on and attempt to age it a bit. Maybe I shouldn't suggest this, but...
