anyone towing with gm 4.3 engine?
I'm getting a 08 gmc sierra next week. Its the WT model and has the 4.3 v6 in it.As far as i have found this truck has a 7000lb towing capacity from all my searches. I'm planning on towing my cj which is around the 3200lb mark by guessing. The trailer i'm using is a regular 16' like you would haul a bobcat or car on. Im going to lighten the deck as much as i can removing some of the middle deck boards. Am i going to be struggling pulling this around? My trips to the places i wheel are usually no more than 150 miles at the farthest away around here in Ohio. And only 3 or 4 times a year. Am just wondering on how the 4.3 pulls power wise and fuel economy wise. Dont think i could afford driving a v8 daily so chose a v6 as my goal. Even thought about possibly getting one of those programmers too to have the towing tune. Thanks for any input !
