    If you look at the sticker in your glove box and take a picture of it. Those are the RPO codes for your truck by gm. Then google 2012 GM RPO codes you can see all the options. Like heavy tow package and such. I have a 2012 Silverado and mine is 9500 lbs. But i got a lot of good info on what mine had. Like heavy duty cooling system and such. Made me feel a lot better when I bought my KZ TT. Also if you never used a weight dist hitch some great videos on you tube that make hooking it up so much easier.

    How does yours tow? I will need to find the info on the wdh , after i get it home. I figure it will need adjusting to my vehicle, but tbh ive never seen one before. Only thing im afraid of is how it will feel towing it. I like thats its duel axel, makes me feel safer.

    It's a lot different than towing the pup! Mine's a '12 also, 6.2L... tow capacity is like 10.5 or 11.... acceleration is greatly affected when pulling a wall behind you! Cruising and braking - no big deal but you will definitely want a wdh with sway control.

    I have the smaller engine, but the heavy duty cooling system with the better gear ratio for towing. It should be ok. The TT is 4500 lbs empty , my pup was about 3500 lbs. I probably overloaded it also.....

    It tows good I never feel under powered at all, The weight dist hitch really helps you feel more planted and stable. I towed it home without it and I could tell a huge difference one I installed it. Night and day.
    But as far as the power and such of the truck no problem, My trans temps never get high and she does just fine. Not saying you wont know its back there but Your truck will handle it no problem.

    Im kinda glad i got the tow package on the truck now, lol. I bought it new, but i always get the tow package, and some other stuff at the advice of my buddy who swares it helps extend the life of the truck and helps resale value. I bought it new, and o nly got a pup 2 Years ago. First thing i ever towed. Lol

    You will be fine towing it. Easier to back up then the pup also.

    I agree with @Ladiesman... you have plenty of truck - just takes a little getting used to!

It looks new, no dents scratches inside or out. I need to re seal the outside, well more want no real need yet, but i figure its about time to do it. I will get the bearings greased and breakes checked along with the spacer thing for the tamdem axel. Other then that i need to fix, replace the toung jack. The electric one works but grinds and spudders some, i have the manual one or i can get a new electric one. Im almost done packing it up, bought a lot of new stuff jyst because! Leds for the lights, bedding etc. And it came with a hevy duty weight distrabution sway bar. 20190826_125520.jpg
