Wanted some other folks opinion on my towing issues. 32 ft tag toy hauler (Wind catching tall one), golf cart & dirt bike inside, 60 gal freash water in tank. My guess is 9500 lb or so. (6500 empty) On the 2 lanes I pull with overdrive off, up to 60 mph. Coming home I drove all freeway with some small hills, same 60mph, in OD. Truck is downshifting alot in OD, screaming to 3000 rpm, then kicking back down. Are the rest of you pulling in OD? I have a Walker BTM & k/n drop in filter (I know....) but I can pull a big tractor or bobcat & equip. very easy of the same weight range. Is the wind drag hurting me that bad? Plan on going to the Ford AIS filter/Gauges/DP Tuner 40-60-80 tow programs/6.0 trans cooler or a add on cooler in the next 60 days. It seems like the truck has too much tounge weight, or? Truck is sitting level when loaded, with the equilizing bars on the 3rd link from end of the chains. I just feel I am hurting the transmission dropping down faily often. Other than the needed up grades, anyone have any other opinions? Thanks!
