Trucks not running too great on long trips up hills.
So I just got back from crossing the Cascades and I can't stand how my truck shifts and runs. I'll be going up a hill and my truck won't downshift and my boost is real low and my EGT climbs really high to like 1100 if I don't pull my foot off it. If I put it in Tow/Haul it is a little better. It's almost like my Innovative tune isnt tuned too good. I have 38 inch swampers that are heavy. Should I get ahold of Innovative and see if they can correct this or should I be looking into 4.56 gears? Would that help alot? I'm running stock 3.73 as of now. Thanks for any help guys.
