That would be a great setup. Even the basics(arp's,egr delete,tunes,exhaust) make pulling a joy.

Re: best tow setup

Yep, when my truck was stock, I could never keep up with my buddy's 2008 F-450 w/ 4:88's when we would haul horse trailers. Now with my mods and the tow tunes, I can pass him on the hills.

Re: best tow setup

I'm getting a 4" exhaust soon, but with my setup now pulling 8k I get 1400 way to easy, no load just truck driving over I-70 I was hitting 1250-1400 just driven. 70-80 mph.
