What are the best custom heavy towing tunes

hey,
My 2007 f250 pulls everyday 18 thousand pounds that is with a t300 bobcat and attachments on a 12 ton trailer. I am running can tunes on a sct tuner. I was wondering who has the best towing tunes out there?

The truck has: APR studs, stock head gaskets, RCD EGR delete, 4in MBRP straight dual exhausts, true flow cold air intake, edge Cts insight with egt probe, a 4in bds lift, toyo open country m/t 35s

not sure on the best custom towing tunes, if you regularly tow 18,000lbs, you should look at buying a F 350 dually at the min, maybe even a F 450.

No such thing as "best", tunes react a little different per truck, per driving style, per load. That is the beauty of custom tunes, get the tune set up for YOUR needs.

At this point, your better off contacting one of the known tune writers and work with them to get the tune dialed in for your needs.

quick tricks, innovative diesel, gearhead automotive are all good. Just call either of them up and they will make at heavy to tune specific to what you personally want.

There are many aspects you can have a prefference on with custom tunes.

I tow 14k and LOOVE gearheads 8k tow tune. Double that weight if you have studs. You're a little too heavy for that tho, so i suggest gearheads unlimited tow.

I've towed that heavy 1000s of miles with couple different tow tunes and now run DP tunes. He does actual custom tunning compared to most that have become fairly canned minus strategy match. DP has 40, 60, 80 HP tow tunes. I normally run 80hp but on long trips (I've done AK to NM & NV to VA) I drop down to 60 HP for internal heat reduction. My trailer weighs 18k normal, but 20+ on those long hauls.
