Looks like Im trading the 1997 F-250 Crew Cab with the 7.5L 460 gas hog in on a 06 Chevy Silverado 1500 WT with manual windows and locks, bench seat, vinyl floor, A/C, Am/Fm radio, Auto, long bed, and a 4.8 V-8. Will this truck be able to handle around 3,000 lbs (equipment and trailer total) of towing Mon-Fri ? I have been towing with my 05 Suburban the last week and have been getting 12-14 mpg average and it handles it like a dream. The Suburban is a 5.3. Please post what you think quickly because the deal is going down tomorrow at 1:00pm unless I back out.
