07 6.0 bucking/jerking when towing
Hi everyone, i am new to this forum and somewhat new to being a diesel owner and had a question about something that happened over the weekend with my truck.
Over the weekend i was pulling my boat to a location about 2 hours away. The boat weighs about 10,000lbs and i am running a towing tune from innovative diesel. My truck also has an SCT Tuner, EGR delete and 4" turbo back straight pipe exhaust. When i would be in 4th gear around 2100-2400RPM and 50-60MPH my truck would start to buck/jerk when i would try and hold that speed with mid to light throttle. If i would let off the throttle or power through into the next gear the bucking would go away. It only happens in that one gear. All my guages look normal and nothing seems wrong with the truck. I don't recall the truck doing this when it was stock and experienced the jerking feeling with both the towing tune that came with the SCT Tuner and innovative diesels towing tune. Not sure if there is something going on in the transmission or with my engine and why it would only happen in that one gear. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
