Hey everyone, I have a 2008 Silverado 1500 with the 4.8 liter engine. The tow rating on this truck is only 4800 pounds, which to me is kinda weak. I noticed that if I had the 3.73 gears I could pull 6800, but since I have the 3.23 its supposedly only 4800 or so pounds. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get more towing capacity out of it without changing the gears? Or maybe 4800 pounds is just being conservative. I know that the 5.3 liter engine doesn’t have too much more horsepower than the 4.8 and it would seem to me if I just beefed up the power a bit it would be better. If anyone has any experience or has anything to add please do so.
