2007 Chevy Tahoe 2WD Auto-Actual Weight

I am setting up my 2007 Chevy Tahoe to be my Toad. I am having a drive shaft disconnect installed and am purchasing a Blue Ox Tow Bar, but I do not know which one to buy. Can anyone tell me what the actual weight of a Tahoe is. ( I know this is a long shot, but I can't seem to find the information anywhere)

Don't know about a 2 wheel drive, but my 4x4 Tahoe is just over 5100#.

A 6,000 lb tow bar will work.
Unless you are going to load over 1,000 lb of stuff inside it.
Then a 10,000 lb tow bar should be used.

I agree with Triker and stuhly.

According to this page (click here) the GVWR of a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 2WD 4dr 1500 is 7,100 pounds. You probably will not be loading the thing to it's capacity (GVWR) and the curb weight is only 2,649 lbs. so you have lots of leeway. For peace of mind, you might want to consider going with a 10,000 lb tow bar, however, but I'm not sure how much more money a 10,000 lb tow bar is as I've never needed one.
