Hi!
Looks like with the proper equipment you could pull more than your 7600 weight. You should be ok.
According to Chevy...

"One of the biggest changes to the Silverado for 2017 is its increased maximum towing capacity, which now rates at a best-in-class 12,500 pounds (when properly equipped). The Silveradoís maximum payload stands at 2,250 pounds.

Even pulling a heavy load, the Silverado never feels strained, particularly when equipped with one of the available V8 engines. The available eight-speed transmission is the better option for towing, as the standard six-speed transmissionís gear ratios arenít ideally spaced for accelerating when pulling a trailer."
