What tune?

I've got a 2006 F250 and use this truck daily for my lawn business. Recently I got the livewire tuner and my truck is 100% stock. I've tried the looney and was very impressed. I tow my lawn equipment and I'm under 3,000 lbs. I also run a spray rig with a 200 gallon tank. What tunes would be advised? I don't throttle out but only once in a while.
Thanks!

Do your research in the 6.0 section, this has been beaten to death

for any towing at all i use the tow tunes from sct either tow+50hp or tow+65hp.

the looney tune is not reccomended for towing any weight amount according to their website... if its only 3k i wouldn't be to worried but its a pretty aggresive file none the less.

get some tow tunes from eric or vivian or even matt at gearhead and don't forget tony wildman.

wildman and eric are my next custom tunes. looney was great but i always had to hard reset my truck after it to get it fully back to stock. couldn't figure out why.

Be smart and keep the right foot in check. Watch the EGTs and be happy. Save up for studs so you can drive worry free!!

Thanks guys for the feedback. I ran my spray rig today with Vivans tow tune and I loved it. I'm thinking about getting a 4" exhaust with cat delete next. Need to save my pennies and would love to get the studs.

I think an exhaust would be really good... i just straight piped my stock and i noticed a difference and not just in sound.
