next steps - towing performance
I have been doing a bunch of reading over the last couple of weeks and I think I have the list for my next mods put together but would like some input. My main goal is a good smooth running truck with good towing power. I have 105K on the truck and will be doing a 3000+ mile trip with the camper (7.5K) this year in the Rockies. I will also be doing some preventive maintenance before the trip.
I have what is in my sig, plus will be adding the following which I either already have or have on order:
AFE stage II (now installed)
cooling mist water/meth injection
SP diesel EBPV
Roadmaster active suspension
My other ideas:
pre-pump and in-tank mods
I will also be doing the following maintenance / preventive maintenance:
Amsoil in the tranny with new filter (flush and fill)
Front and rear diff fluid change and transfer case fluid
pull turbo and replace oil seals and seal for EBPV
new pads and rotors all around (have a warped rotor somewhere)
Trying to keep the additional stuff (including brakes) under $1K and will do all the labor myself.
Thanks ahead of time for the input.
