    Default '08 WT w/ V6 engine, how much can I tow with max payload?

    Greetings all,

    I have read that my truck has a maximum load weight of 1,937 lbs. and a towing capacity of 9,100 lbs. I also have a ball hitch.

    9,100 lbs seems too high for a ball hitch, so I'm guessing that number is for a frame mounted hitch.

    My question is, what's the most weight I can put in the bed and tow with the bumper hitch?

    The bumper mounted ball on my yukon has a 500# toung weight limit and a 5,000# max trailer weight from factory. It is embossed on the bumper. Any such info on yours?
