towing help

I have a 1995 ford f350 cc 2x4 PSD 5speed. 4.10 gears k and n filter, 6 pos. chip (stock, 50, 75,100,140 and high idle) egt,water temp, and boost gauges, 3" downpipe straight exhaust. I am grossing 20,000 with my truck and camper. The hill around here that is the test is a 7% 5 mile grade. I want to run between 45-60 mph up the hill. Is it anything i can do to help without breaking the bank? the truck has 170,000 on it. Should i do the DIY injectors or are they not worth it in a high milage truck. Should I just get new injectors. I cant do it now but may be one day. please help.

I went with the DIY stage 1's at 175K miles. I think they are a great option for more power. The stage 1's will make your truck a towing monster. An intercooler may be needed, though.

I agree whit that, and 170K there are not a high milage truck. OK?
