The towing capacity is 11,000 pounds for 3.42 rear axle ratio.
Capacity is 11,500 pounds for 3.73 rear axle ratio.The LS or LT makes no difference.

With all due respect that sounds way too high. My understanding is that it is somewhere between 6500-6800 lbs. Are you sure the TB 5.3 -V-8 can tow/trailer 11,000 ilbs? I'm not sure even the Tahoe can handle 11,000lbs ?
