What you pullin? That must be a big trailer. I just bought a new truck and I checked the weight of 2008 GMC Diesel CC/SWB. It was ~7200lbs, add your pin weight of 2890 and the total without fuel, people and cargo is 10190lbs. You have a GVWR of 9200 so I would say that is way to heavy for a 2500HD.
