    I have a 2500HD and a 3500 for my business. The dealership told me the basic difference was the 3500 has ONE more spring in the rear gang and uses larger tires. (A dually in GM actually has smaller tires than my single tires.) I actually towed my 12,000lb. trailer with my 2500 this weekend. In the charts from GM, the ratings are the same for a dually and a single rear wheel truck. A Dually is not necessary for a trailer in your weight range. Again, RELAX

    I have the 2500HD with the 6.0L, and it sure struggled getting about 6500 pounds of 5ver up hills. So I take the mfg ratings with a grain or 3 of salt...
