I have a 2005 Chevy 2500HD 6.0 gas, regular cab 2WD. I've got a dump insert in it and it hauls heavy weights very well. I've had 4,000 pounds in the bed (overloaded a bit I know) and it handles it great. I also tow light (2000 lbs) on a regular basis and up to 6000 occasionally. It also handles that well. I think it would pull 10K but would not do that regularly. It's been virtually problem-free since new. It's thirsty on gas but handles anything I throw at it. If you are shopping, keep in mind that the newer style (2007 and newer) uses a 6 speed auto that has much better ratios than the older 4 speed like what I have. In fact, a 6 speed with 3.73 rear end gears has better overall gearing for towing than my 4 speed with 4.10s.
