58v FICM for towing or not

I am going to be pulling the FICM this weekend to send down to swamps, I was wondering if I should go with the 58v or not since I tow 13k on a regular basis

Thanks for the help!!

Talk to Swamps IIRC several people have gotten GREAT customer service from them after the sale. In the past there were some issues but Swamps stepped up for the customer. I'd have no worries running the 58v for towing.
