    You can go as big as 12' tandem though I would think about upgrading trucks next year, Only attempt if you have the 4.3 liter. I'm sporting a 16' open top rail tube steel utilty trailer with no problem on my 96 s10. M make sure you have a brake controller and definitely think about a transmission cooler. If its an auto 4.3 2 wheel drive then it has the max towing capacity for s10's.

    the 6 1/2 X12s pull real nice and are lighter weight. we use them and hold 1 60" laser and 1 44" laser. a little tight but they fit and are easy to maneuver in tight areas. we use all old silverados to pull them and occasionally a minivan 6 cyl pulls fine new around 2,800
