Did some towing this weekend.

Some friends and I went up to Anderson S.C. this weekend for a truck/car show. I towed my buddies bagged ranger up on a trailer. First time ever towing anything, went really good. I think trailer brakes will be on order for the next go round. Tranny never got over 180, with the SCT on "TOW" the truck pulled ok..it seemed to struggle going up the on ramps and merging. EGTS would get into the 1100-1200 with the quickness.

My buddy in his 04 Chevy with a 6' lift and 35"s. His truck looks tiny now..

00 F-250 PSD 4WD CCSB - Airraid Intake/Catback/SCTLivewire/8.5" ProComp lift w/37-13.50's on MB 20"x9"s.

96 Dakota Sport - 360 .030 over/8.2 Comp Ross pistons/Eagle Rods/Lightended Crank/Vortech S-trim w/12# pulley/Aeromotive Fuel Setup/50# injs./ Haltech EMS/TKO600 coming soon (and a lot more stuff I don't have room to list)

Love the pics!

And yes trailer brakes when hauling stuff like that are always a good thing!

Trailer brakes and a little more drop on the hitch to make the trailer ride level would help...
