Hate to burst your bubble, but no bulletproofing has been yet undertaken on my Ex. I gotta get this rust under control before I even consider throwing close to 5 figures at anything else on it.

so looking at this for my dad, he has an 11 yukon with the 3.42 gears and tow package rated at 8100, his boat is like 8500ish he really wants to keep you truck since he just dropped large duckets on a new boat, I noticed going from 3.08 to 3.42 gears adds 500lbs to the tow capacity, do you think going from 3.42 to 3.73's would do the same?

edit he also just put bags on the rear, and has a load leveling hitch deal

The bumpers are running away REAL fast. I noticed some bubbling a year or 2 ago, and now they're just disintegrating. I want to do some brushing on the frame and get some POR on the underside. The inside bottom edge of the doors are just barely starting too. I'm fine with the bumpers going because those can be replaced easily, and I'll deal with the doors if I have to, but if the rear quarters start to go, then I'm in trouble. The 250/350 truck bed sides go bad over the wheels, so I can't imagine the Ex would be any different.

it'd make it easier to pulll for sure of course but who knows what it would be "rated at" then... it looks like 2011 5.3 crew cab silverado's with 3.42's were rated at 9500ish...

was uhual trailer that did probably have the brakes, doubt I had the controller in that tahoe, i think the 'tow package' is just the electrical for lights and the button to keep it out of overdrive? you have to add those brake controllers separate I think?
