    Default 2008 Suburban 4x4 LTZ factory hitch

    I have a 2008 suburban LTZ 4X4 with built in factory hitch it can pull 7900 lbs (Everybody seems to agree with this ) but my questions are.....

    1) what is the tongue weight that the hitch can carry ?
    2) is there any kind of upgrade available if need be? no sense in getting a lightweight trailer if the tongue weight it to heavy.
    3) where do i find if i have the K5L option or not.

    Thanks

    Sounds like you have a nice truck there. I'd love to see some pics when you get a chance.
