Which light tow tune to go with?

Alright guys, next week Im headed down to jacksonville, tx for mud nationals. Its about a 300-350 mile trip and I'll be taking a suzuki king quad 750, vinson 500, and a yahmaha rhino on a 20 gooseneck. I've read where gearhead makes a 8k tow or a 10k for studded, which my truck is. Innovative diesel's street tune also lets you tow up to 10k. Are there any other ones Im missing or which one do yall think will fit best? Thanks.

I have a Mini Max and tow a 13,000 5th wheel on mild which is the first boost setting above stock. It works great and EGT's stay below 1200.

I have a tow tune from Matt at innovative that I use to tow around 18-20k and it works pretty good. But since this is a pretty light load. I just wanted a bit more power and a little better mpg to go along with it.

I have them all and my IDP 8K works the best in my truck. Pulling around 6k every weekend all summer. As soon as I hit lock up on the turn pike it does not come out. Pulls like a freight train

Re: Which light tow tune to go with?

Can you add some stats to that...? Kinda wondering how a 100hp tow tune works out. Egt, what weight you normally pull, just curious.
