I guess I'll stand up for the chevy crowd!
93 G30 15 pass van(mini bus) fresh 350 tbi, 4l80E, 3.73 rear, full floater 14 bolt rear.
use 3rd gear and throttle down!
Tows like a dream lots of room for crew, tires, tools and parts. storage during the off season is a plus, and its always ready for those quick race trips. some old shelfs from a work van on one side, a nice captians chair for the wife, and a side bench for the crew.

I have a 99 silverado 5.3 and get 15 towing and about 19 unloaded.I have other friends that have the same trucks and they get about the same,maybe something is wrong with your truck
