I am going to be moving to AK in the fall, driving from Minnesota. I have a 2002 Silverado 1500 with a 4.8 liter. I'm estimating the weight I will be hauling to be roughly 8-10K lbs. Slide in camper, 7x16 trailer, snowmobile, household items. Is this too much for my 1/2 ton? I would get airbags for the rear suspension, and a tranny cooler (unless mine has it already. How good is the one with the towing package?) I am debating selling this truck and getting a 3/4 ton. What would you pay for a truck like mine? 110K miles, 4x4, z71 offroad suspension, brand new bilstein shocks, towing package, extended cab, linex spray in bedliner, topper. It has a salvage title, but is rebuilt. It had been hit on the passenger side and needed new doors and a rocker panel. It has some dents and dings, not perfect cosmetically. I have till November to get this figured out. Waddaya think?
