2004 Duramax 2500 Silverado Towing Capacity

The Issue:--

Towing  13,000 lb 5th wheel behind a 2004 Duramax 2500 Silverado is possible.

My Answer is yes its possible.

And this is because Maximum towing capacity for the 2004 Chevy 2500 with duramax engine and 5th wheel setup is 16,700 lbs, so yes, it will tow the 13,000lb fifth wheel.

Please Note on some cases the issues are noticed regarding  axle weight with the hitch in the bed.
But that will not matter in this case.

The fifth wheel set up is what gives you the towing capacity of 16,700lbs.
When not using a fifth wheel set-up, towing capacity is only 13,000 lbs. The weight distribution with the fifth wheel increases towing capacity.

Personal experience share:----
Garage Mechanic Says:----
He has towed for years with 5th wheel setup on  duramax and never had issues with the rear axle or drivetrain. Towing at 15,000lbs with 5th wheel loaded and no issues loaded.

What a Chevy Product to Love about its qualities and advantages.
