2009 F250 4x4
7" Icon lift
37/13.50 mud grapplers
H&S tuned/deleted. 5" exhaust.
So its the first time ive towed since i put the bigger lift on. I knew it would be different, because daily driving i can tell the heaviness of the tires/wheels.
Anyway i towed a buddies 7.3L excursion home about 100 miles. I have a 24ft gooseneck that probably weighs around 4000lbs or so, i dont know.
Anyway it pulled great and i ran 70-80mph most of the way. My boost really spikes up though, more so then before (obviously tire weight i know), but seems like even towing at lower speeds on the two lane roads id see 25-33lbs of boost. Seems like a lot. Would a regear eventually be something to look into. And if so which gears to swap with. Theres a ton of opinions on the topic that ive already read. i came from gassers and 4.56 was kind of the sweet spot for 37s.
Id like some real world experience knowledge on the topic. Thanks
Oh and window sticker i found of my truck says 3.73 gears....I dont think id be that happy with keeping these forever, i know ive read some say thats plenty, but i think i disagree
