What Towing Modifications Do You Have?
Now that the busiest time of the year is on us for towing - camping trailers, boats, utility trailers, etc. Let's get some feedback on what you have done to setup your rig for towing. Could be anything from a nice chrome ball on your bumper all the way up to a fifth-wheel receiver, heavy HD springs, towing air-bag (like our sponsor Total Load Control offers), or whatever.

The only things I needed to do to my truck was get a decent (not expensive, just decent) trailer brake controller installed, have the 7 pin trailer plug installed on the rear bumper, and get a weight distributing hitch to help with the weight of our travel trailer.csltrains96

Programmed to run 92 octane and going to change shift points to get max hp out of every gear and for I'm hoping for at least some MPG back. Tires a little over-inflated to get some back and maybe coming soon could be a back up camera so I can stop dinging up my license plate and bumper . There could be some larger cooling equipment and fans to accompany them as well.
