I'm sure I'm busting 5000 but the 5.3 Vortec handles it well in the foothills around Danville, VA. Will post pics when I get rotate home in June.
Will also post a "How To" thread on building your own brake bleeder for less than $50 when I get back.

There's almost no travel left in the bed (need air springs or timbrens yet - coming this summer)... but other than that, we've put 3000+ miles towing that package around since Feb. It'll dump all the way down to 2nd gear and 5000rpm to keep up 55 going up 5-6% grade, but it'll do it. If you time it right, you can keep it rolling 65mph plus.
I've been getting averages of 7.9mpg towing like that though. I've managed 16mpg empty flat, so figure 10-11mpg if it were flat towing that much.
