RaceMe and towing

I ditched dodge in 2013 and went to Ford because you couldn't delete anymore buuuuut now the RaceMe is out and it seems like enough people have proven them reliable , the most important thing to me is towing is anyone towing heavy with one installed ? By heavy I mean between 15,000-25,000 lbs ? I found a megacab G56 truck I'm on the fence about and thats the deciding factor if anyone can give some feedback I'd really appreciate it , thanks

Im in the same boat as you. Have had my platinum for 2yr now wanna buy the wife a new suv and the highest dollar truck just isn't cutting it for that anymore. Im gonna go with a tradesman or slt. On the fence reg vs crew cab. g56 is def my choice. Im also wanting the auto level suspension that like a must for me. I don't tow as heavy as you do but when i do tow its around 10,000 with a lot of tongue weight. trying to keep the price of the truck down too and find something long bed. has to be a long bed. Its weird i remember you on here before and we are both in the same boat. LOL

Yea I dig the ford I have a fully done up 13 Lariat ultimate with a bunch of goodies and honestly im just looking for the empty ride quality if I could figure out a way to tow my toy hauler with a 2500 a would. My big hiccup is im honestly 100k into my ford and I know its damn near the ultimate tow rig but im getting older my back hurts I hate the rough shifting and shift flares of the crazy tune im running bla bla bla

sweet man I appreciate the feedback , what are you seeing for EGTs when towing that heavy , I cant wait to have my exhaust brake back haha plus the manual trans that was the only thing I never liked about my 11 or 12 the H&S overdrive was never perfect and everything you MCC'd never seem to be middle of the road it was either sloppy or sled pull.

I have only deleted my nothing else run the tow tune has made good power and the sifts seem good. I know what you mean about the flares on some tunes. I run php tunes seem to do well nets me 22mpg on long trips saw 23 once down south. That is a sweet rig though. We looked into a toy hauler and just didn't make sense for us. With my time line with work I just don't have the time for it. My brother just bought a 2500 western brown which is kinda why I have the itch. I miss my old red truck before the 48re swap.

I towed about 15000 with 2500 in the bed and had no problems with the 30hp tune. I am going to be getting a different clutch tho. And the egts are surprisingly low, hard to see much over 1000
