SCT Street/occasional tow tune recommendation

I've got an '05 F350 with ARP's, new ford HG's, SCT Livewire, and a Bulletproof EGR cooler. I am looking for a good daily driver tune to wake up the engine, give me better fuel economy when I can control my right foot, and I want to be able to tow my 7500# GVW dump trailer occasionally. Most of the towing I do is around town (40mph/short distance) and if it is just a case of behaving myself and watching EGT's, I can do that. Any recommendations?

I've got the tow aggressive from Vivian and its great for pulling or anything really, not super high horses, but wakes up the truck. The next level would be a street tune...

Edge CTS w/EGT probe.ARP 4" silverline,
fuel pressure reg upgrade, coolant filter, pre-pump spin on fuel filter, ELC,Oil bypass
