If the rear end, springs, shocks, tranny, bushings, frame/xmembers, brakes, etc are all in good shape. BTW, I think it means you can haul 3000 lbs, or tow something that has a tongue weight of 3000 lbs (that's A LOT). You should be able to tow a significant weight, depending on the trailer style, the rear end ratio you've got, engine, tranny, and where you're going.

Met list: Cyclone,Wilson,TranzAm,extd56,hotrodhomi,mnky30,Rokcrln,Brad,JerryJones(well, his truck anyway).
