Anybody blown more than 1 headgasket

Okay my truck went in for studs in November at 71K and now at 76k it's puking again. The dealer installed the studs, but I'm at a loss with this truck man. The warranty is up in July of this year so I'm almost at the point where I can't be without the truck when it goes back in the shop. The truck ran fine until I hooked up my 7500lb trailer to it and hit a few South Carolina/Georgia hills. That's when it reverted back to it's old ways of puking coolant out the reservoir cap. I really like the truck and I've put a ton of money in it, but I'm about ready to go over to Duramax so I can at least attempt to get over 150k without major engine problems. I know all the Diesels have problems but this is ridiculous man.

Something was not checked out exactly right.

I am on my second set of gaskets. Something was wrong with first job. I think the heads that were supposed to be "micro" planned, got a serious deck, and the heads warped. So got new heads now at Fords expense. Chances are the heads were warped and they didnt check them correctly.

I wouldnt dare run your street tune while pulling that weight, the timing is too advanced and it builds alot of cylinder pressure.

I was running it on the tow tune today when it went south. I'm really exhausted mentally because I have to go without a truck again when it goes back in the shop. I don't pull it with the xtreme street tune.
