    Hey everyone, first time poster. I’ve got an 06’ common rail with a smarty Touch tuner and I’m wondering what everyone has been running while towing for both power, longevity, and fuel economy.

    What’s up guys, I’m looking to get a 6 inch suspension lift for my truck and am curious if I’d be able to pull a 5th wheel with the height of it. I’m pretty dead set on the 6 so I’m wondering if anyone else has a 6 and has towed a fifth wheel with it, or gooseneck even for that matter. If not I...

    So this is my first post. I have a stock 2017 2500 outdoorsman with the “preferred tow package” the dealer called it on the sticker.

    So I was towing a 28ft travel trailer roughly 6,500 pounds on the interstate going about 70mph. When I would start to climb a hill I felt like I was lugging the motor with my foot to the floor struggling to maintain my speed. My rpms we’re jumping up to 2500-3000. The truck is an 07.5 6.7L 4x4...
