the tahoe has a towing capacity of around 7,000 pounds or 3.5 tons. it could do more but braking would be hard, also make sure the trailers balanced. most new Trucks can pull 1-2 Jeeps easy. just research the weight limits more. what are you towing anyways, just 2 Jeeps?

We had a big Dodge 3500 with a diesel pulling 5 cars for the dealership, was just an amazing thing to watch going down the road.
this one is my fave, my friends 1996 ZJ limited with a 4.0 pulled a 12,400lb tractor 60 miles to the farm. I couldnt believe my eyes.

You can tow 1 Jeep on a trailer with a Tahoe. It won't be as much fun for you as a 2500 pickup (which will be even better with a diesel).
