Worth mentioning: If you have overdrive don't use it when towing anything heavy. The frequent "gear searching" will fry an auto pretty fast. You shouldn't have any issue with your 2500 hauling that without a cooler.

the truck display offers 1,2,3,OD.
is that truck ok to drive 1200 miles in 3?
how about going down those blue ridge mountains? 3 ok?
i doubt i'll find myself going over 55-60. i'll assume thats law anyway.

check your brakes too. That's going to be a fair amount of weight to tow.

You'll likely be ok, but does it have to be towed?

You want to drive in "3", towing in overdrive is almost always a bad idea. Going down hill you could slow and shift to "2" to let the engine help with braking. Towing with an auto isn't bad, but I do miss the 4 speed that was in my 67 Jimmy.
