Is it worth it?

My truck is at 87K. Only deleted the EGR and upgraded a few minor things. Still not studded.
I pull a 13-14k 5er and it does what I expect it to do. I live real close to "Innovative" and was thinking about stopping by and getting some input from him about putting a tow tune on it and maybe playing with a non-studded performance tune. I'm not trying to rush a stud job but I'm not afraid to get it done and out of the way.
Any reasons not to?

I pulled a heavier trailer for 30k miles on non studded tow tunes before I got studs. I even ran IDs, they were very safe and less performance oriented than other tow tunes I've tried - which in your case sounds like would be good news

The only reason not to us you will never load your stock tune again, wait that's another plus to it! Do it! These 6.0s have a LOT left in the bag! It looks like you have a monitor already so just keep an eye on it like normal!

Enjoy your new rig
