Custom Tow Tune

So now that i have my truck all set up along with a SCT tuner where do i go for some good "custom" tow tunes? i dont know much about them. I will put up to about 11k on/behind it 4500# camper in the bed and a 5K pound boat on the hitch + or _ for misc gear. I also pull some pretty steep mountain passes with the loads. Have no idea where to begin or with who and how

Thanks

CALL MATT AT gearhead performance, i am running a tow tune good for up to 8k, and the shifting and mileage are great......roughly 2.5 mpg gain first install , and that was running it fairly hard trying to get used to the shifting.

DP tuner all I will run after trying a few of the std top forum picks. Jodi travels the country and does Dyno tuning sessions for big groups monthly. He prefers Dyno tune, but willing to make a custom tune by order. More experience than the rest combined, and he is not your standard young laptop tuner. Look at the rest of my mods. I do quality upgrades. You want the best, you know where to get it. Good luck.

If you all could give the contact info with your recommendations that would be greatly appreciated. I would like to talk to them all and explain what set up i have and what kind of weights i tow so as to try and find the best solution for me and my situation.

Thanks
