Years ago I pulled most of a 24' motorhome on a flatbed to the scales behind my YJ... I have a witness too IIRC I weighed in at over 10k lbs.

Without the upgraded drive train I would have killed it.

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.
