motor grenaded Y?

rosewood diesel stage 3 hybrids
stealth stage 1 hpop
dp tuner chip matched for injectors
and banks big head waste gate

pulling 10-11,000 lbs 68 mph 6spd so 1950 rpms
cruise control
out of blue BAM!
chucks a rod out the oil pan drivers side rear cylinder
the hole was on pass. side near pan rail around starter area
had been pulling good so far I had that load on for 120 miles before it happened
oil pressure was good. oil level was at add mark when I stopped
so no problems there. WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm really upset about this
not to mention the 150 mile ride home with a wrecker.
Why would this happen. I wasn't even going up a grade. power turned down as low as it goes which is about 120-130 over stock.

What engine?

Turned down to 120-130, if you've run it hard on the higher settings, it could have weakened the rods and they just decided to leave.
