I know their loader wouldn't lift the van, and the loader was rated at 10K. I pulled it behind a 1/2 ton truck. In the one mile trip, I blew out 3 trailer tires.

My brother pulled what was left of a bulldozer behind his 94 K1500 Suburban. It does have airbag helpers on the rear axle, and a load leveling hitch.

I see "Scrap Metal" on the Suburban - this and the posted weights gets a from me: Nothing like having someone chime in with real-world experience, especially if they do it as a job.
