At speeds below 60 I just use manual mode and select 5th - that way it can't shift into overdrive and doesn't bog. Works really well.

In fact, when not towing and on surface streets daily driving I almost always use 4th, all the time. Cures the balky shifting everybody complains about since it can't shift way up when cruising 40. Just works better.

I just finished towing this U-Haul 6x12 trailer over 5100 km (about 3200 mi) across Canada (Montreal to northern BC). I'm not sure what the weight was (didn't have a chance to weigh it). It handled it pretty well, but a little rough in the mountains. Wouldn't do it again in the winter, for sure.

What was the problem? Was it a braking issue?

Our trip home from the dealer with a quick stop for some tri tip and ribs. Also our first meal in our home away from home.

Still need to get the wdh on and setup, I do love the brake controller.
The truck did bottom out a few times, nothing harsh but noticeable, curious to see what the Bilsteins will be like.

Can't wait till our first camping trip next weekend.

Didn't have enough power, I think. Braking wasn't very good either, but I'll blame U-Haul's surge brakes for that (and the fact that someone overtightened its brake fluid lid so much that it couldn't be checked).

I've since added a shell, boxes and gear. Even more weight!

I will add AirLift bags soon

Tongue weight is about 400#
UPDATE

Added Airlift airbags with wireless controller.

Easy install, Works great, Levels the truck and rides nice...

Adjustable preset inflation settings for towing, just push the button and the bags inflate or deflate to your desired PSI

My 2015 6 banger with duck boat this past season. Pulls this and Lund fishing boat like nothing there. New 255/70/17 AT tires will be on in time for 2017 duck season. Will see what the differences are.

I chose Cooper Adventurer/Discoverer AT's in 245-70-17. Can't tell the difference other than it rides a LOT better. Traction is way better as well. Could not be happier with these.

They are a quarter inch narrower and a half inch taller than the GY Fortitudes. I did not realize how hard those GY's were. They are the same 110S load rating and within a couple of pounds of weight per tire. I was concerned with going over-size for unsprung weight as well as gearing on the I4. These are perfect.

Correct, it is vinyl wrapped from the doors back :)

The wrapper put his spin on it, I can try to find out the color for you.
