looks like my old truck. i had a 97 s10 with a 6.5x10 trailer pulling off the bumper hitch as well. my bumper got a little bent before the end.. It worked fine for me though. Now i got a chevy 1500.. and i want to have a skid sprayer, and now this truck isn't enough. go figure.

Holy crap. I think if you look at the bumper it will say something like "500 lb max" stamped right into the plastic.



Edit. Meh, it's probably higher than that, but you really, REALLY should find out.
Don't be the guy who kills a vanload of kids because you aren't towing your stuff properly.

Believe it or not but the S-10 is/was a work horse.

That 500lb you see on the bumper is the tongue weight not the total tow rating.

In general between all the model years of the S-10 depending on regular cab, bed length, etc; With the 4cyl it had a rated towing of 2,000lbs and with the V-6 max towing is/was 6,000lbs

Most of the V-6 were rated at 500lb max tongue weight with 5,000lb max trailer weight.
