I hope so gotta take the wheeler home for so go slow (over rocks) modifications. Lol. The only worry I have is my tranny. But it seems to run cooler when I'm towing compared to running empty

That's odd, do you go slower compared to empty?

A little I run probably 5 mph less when towing on a level surface. On hills quite a bit slower. Depending on my egt's

Could be why, but if it's done it before, should do it again, just keep an eye on the gauges

I did that trip a few years back (Sydney to Tri-Cities)
Back when I had my 03 F350 CCLB on 39.5 Irok's, towing my 26Ft Toy Hauler
Long boring trip, but I recall it being extremely windy in many places along the way.. Made it fun in that setup..(Toy Hauler was lifted 4" as well)
Hopefully your trip is more calm than mine was..
I also had a few inches of snow in spots too, big that was no biggie...

Did get to see a semi square either an elk, or cow about half mile in front of me tho... couldn't tell what it was as he pulled over blocking it..
But looked like someone spilled 50 gallon barrel of red paint all over the highway tho!!!
