    Any idea of how much weight I can carry in the bed of my 1999 Silverado 2500 ( this is not the HD model) with extended cab? Is there a chart or way to figure this out so that I don't break an axle or something? Thanks.

    There should be some information in your owners manual. I am sure its posted online somewhere too.

    For that vehicle it's rated not to exceed 3100 pounds!

    I took a look and found this:

    Keep in mind a few things..... This guy does not work for GM, so I would expect that these numbers are (close), but you would need the GM information to be sure.

    And the amount of weight that can be towed depend on a few things:


    • Engine size
    • If you have 2 wheel drive or 4 wheel drive
    • If it is a regular cab, extended cab or crew cab
    • if it is a long or short box.

    Thanks evryone. Based on the tag information on the driver-side door, the rear axle has a capacity of just over 2000 #'s. I was able to haul a load of musroom compost at 2108#'s. Thanks again.
