heavy towing

The Lucas is the cause of your foamy oil. If i was to do anything i would run a quality synthetic oil, like Amsoil. Foaming oil is very bad for the injectors in these trucks

It was when the synthetics first came out but not a problem anymore. Go for it. whatever you do stop running lucas in your oil. or any oil additive in the PSD.
