Couple questions

Aside from the 4x4 thread I made I've got some other questions

I have an 8" lift is that too high to pull a gooseneck trailer?

Also. I've got quite a few mods and I'mthinking my tune is not doing them justice or helping my mileage out at all. What tune is recommended?

My mods are. 1.0 ported non wastegated exhaust housing with wicked wheel
4" downpipe 5" exhaust (mbrp)
S&b intake
6.0 intercooler bean diesel over boost kit. And flexalite fans



Another issue I'm having is smoke while idling from the crankcase vent box. I never had this issue til swapping to this turbo. Any ideas?

Are you saying there is smoke coming from the housing on the valve cover? if you didnt get the hose hooked up all the way or the gaskets aren't right it can do that. Also any of the big names tuners will do more justice for mods. look at DP, PHP, TW, beans, or gearhead.
edit: and about the gooseneck i'm not for sure but i'd be afraid of it catching the side of my bed.

I really think it depends on the gooseneck. I towed a 25' dovetail gooseneck for awhile with a 6" Lift and 37" tires. It would sit level with the pin all the way up and never even came close to threatening my bed. I did drag the tail end of the trailer once turning out of a parking lot though, but it sat close to the ground even when sitting level, on level ground so....no suprise. I think if it was a flatbed, etc that it should be no problem. I also know someone that towed a 40' 5th wheel with pretty much the same setup as I have. Worked good, but he preferred to drop down to 35" tires from the 37"s on his in order to keep the tail of the trailer a little farther from the ground.

I towed a racecar 280 mile round trip a couple days ago and never once hinted of a problem with my bumper pull trailer. But I am changin the fan back I don't trust the electric fans since I went in the mud and the temp sensor somehow got unplugged which made the fans quit.. So it is getting changed over just waitin on my shroud from ford
