Towing shutter

Towing a thirty foot horse trailer with living quarters my 08 has begun to shutter under light throttle. Is something going bad or do I just need traction bars? Truck has been studded, egr delete, turbo back exhaust and mini max. Please help

Airbags

The truck also has airbags. When I tow I normally have 70psi in them

I get some spring wrap while towing on occasion. It not really a shutter, more like a bounce. Something like 4 times a second. Not really a fast, what I would call, a shutter. Maybe that's all it is? Bars would fix it.

I tow a 14500 lb 5th wheel and had same issue. i live on a very steep road and was hardly able to step into throttle at all with out a shutter or shake. I had to light throttle it all the way up my hill . I installed PMF floating traction block set up and its like having a new truck. 90% gone. Put on a good set of bars and get it over with. JIM
