    Don't take it for golden word, but I'm guessing around 3,500 lbs.

    Take the GVWR of the truck, minus the empty weight and the difference is what you can carry.

    Payloads for Silverado 2500HD models range from 3,076 to 4,047 pounds.

    My 07 GMC 2500HD can haul 3,500 legally. Should be close to that.

    If its a L.C.G. load you will be fine if its a H.C.G. then you will feel it. I would say 4000lbs is your max payload make sure the tires are pumped up.

    The DOT will have a field day with some of you guys if they should stop you. Hope you don't have an accident first.
