AggTow Tune or Back to Stock?

Hey Guys,

I am going deer hunting next month and will be towing a small 18' travel trailer. All loaded up with gear and everything I should be about 7200 lbs.

I will be towing over the North Cascade Hwy/pass, and and wondering if I should use my tow tune or flash back to stock??

The pass is steep in serveral areas, but I'm paranoid about adding power and putting weight behind it. I'm just wondering what you guys would suggest, tow tune or stock? I want to take advantage of some additional power since I'm lifted and on 35's, but don't want to hurt the truck.

All my mods are in my sig...

Thanks

-Evan

Do you have a milder tow tune or just Aggtow? I wouldn't hesitate to go with a mild tow tune. I'm running a tow tune with turbo brake as my daily driver because I frequently hook up to a water trailer (7000 lbs.) and I love it. My tune writer (MKM) doesn't recommend aggressive tow on a non-studded truck. If all you have is aggressive tow I would suggest going back to stock for peace of mind.

Just read your sig again. Notice you are studded and deleted so you should be fine.
