Question Best gauges/monitor for 05 6.0 tow vehicle

Monday or Tuesday I pick up my 05 F350 6.0. It has ARP studs installed, BD EGR and oil cooler (thankfully, dealer agreed to put these units on to replace OEM under warranty) and hopefully will be reliable enough to actually do what I bought it to do, pull a 26' toy hauler trailer, which is around 10-11,000 pounds fully loaded.

I have seen the Edge Insight CS or CST recommended, also Scangauge 2. I want to buy what I need for towing, which may include steep climbs occasionally. The truck is otherwise stock, although I am considering a new intake and exhaust for better flow. Don't know enough to decide on getting a combination tuner/monitor. Wouldn't mind having a little more "oomph" going uphill, but don't want to be back in the shop again. Anything around $500 or less you have had good results using? Thanks.

I Fully agree. I use an Insight CTS to monitor vitals - which is especially important with the cab-over camper on the back (2005 Lance 845). We are frequently at 6K to 8K feet of altitude in the Sierras and in 4x4 low range exploring jeep trails and old logging roads looking for the perfect campsite. Usually end up somewhere between 5 and 15 miles from any paved road. The truck and camper fully loaded weighs about 12,600 LBs. The truck works hard in this environment, making it important to know what's going on internally.
