If you have gauges you can see what your trans temp is. But what I would do is unhook the trailer. Then go for a drive with the truck set up the same way. If you still have the problem then you have a drivetrain problem.

Is the engine running rough? I have to ask because it is possible to be an engine problem.

Sounds like something is wrong somewhere. Truck should have no issue with that weight.

I do have gauges and it was staying between 160 and 165. I had to take it to stock because my tranny was slipping to bad. Could a bad tranny cause it not to be able to build boost? I have a leaky uppipe also. It sounded like the stock wastegate was not able to hold, I could hear what I thought was it relieving continuesly whenever I hit the o/d button. Thanks

if your tranny is slipping sure it could cause the power transfer not to be able to work and thereforeee...sounds like its trans time.
