If it is a 4x4 and you can put the transfer in neutral yes. 2 wheel drive's are not.
I am setting up my 07 Classic 2500HD, so far this is my laundry list of parts. The tow bar and base plate are Blue Ox, but it is a personal preference on which one you buy.
1 - Blue Ox Aventa LX 10K tow bar
2 - Blue Ox BX1660 Base Plate (Also fits the 3500HD)
3 - Blue Ox Accessory kit - Has a tow bar cover, 6 pin cable, tow hitch lock, and tow bar locks, and 2 light kits (1 diode Kit and 1 bulb kit), and a 6 pin connectors for the truck and 1 for the RV. I used the bulb kit, not the diodes. For some reason Blue Ox has the Bulb kit, Roadmaster does not have a bulb kit for the GM trucks (Diodes only), not sure why, I always thought they came from 1 Chinese factory, there must be 2.
4 - EvenBrake - picked mine up used so I could save a few bucks. The braking options are plentiful, there are some only rated for 7.5K, I steered away from them as that is close to what the truck weighs, and I may want to throw something in the bed of the truck.
I bought all the Blue Ox stuff new, could not find used one for a decent price nearby, most of the ones I ran across were within $100 of a new one.
If you have any questions about the install, you can post or send me a PM.
