I'm buying a 01 Suburban 2500 4x4 w/6.0L and wanted to know others experiences good or bad towing over 8K. I plan on using this to occassionally tow my 31' travel trailer that weighs about 8,700lbs. Also any suggestions on mods for hp/tq?

the diesel will outpull the 6.0 all day but the 6.0 wont be bad either. what gearing does the suburban have in it. 4.10's would probably be a good upgrade if it has the 3.73's. unfortunately I havent done a lot of heavy hauling in my 6.0 but it has done well when I have towed with it. after I lifted and put 35's on it struggles a bit on hills since I didnt jump to 4.56 gears but as you stated before just need some more patience on the hills.
