What is the load capacity of a 1983 GMC 3500. GVW >5000<5600 lbs?
What is the load capacity of this vehicle? 1983, GMC G3500, 350 cid, 4 bbl
carb, 4 speed trans. floor shift, 4.10 : 1 rear gear, flat bed, LWB. What is its
towing capacity? It's GVW is given as just over 5000 lbs.
I would think the towing capacity would be north of 7,000 pounds. To know the load capacity subtract the actual vehicle weight from the GVW.
I towed a dual axle trailer with my old 82 GMC that weighed on the scales at 16000 lbs, but I had a really good hitch, electric brakes on the trailer, a 454 engine, 4:10 rear end gears, 1200X16.5 tires and horrible fuel mileage. Sorry I couldn’t find any real hard data on towing capacities of your rig.
