Well, I'm a little late for my input but here goes anyway.
First, seeing as how that is a tow truck, gauges are a must. Why risk thousands on an engine and tranny when 2 gauges could have saved you in the first place for 200 bucks.
You have an automatic transmission that you don't want to harm. I would suggest a modified valve body from either john woods or bts. Especially if you are going to run the superchip.
Custom tunes are cool, your transmission can be dialed in to shift the way you want it to, and to pro-long the life. You could also have whoever your tuner is write you some mild tow tunes (20t, 40t) and two more hot dog tunes for having fun when the trailer isn't hooked.
To be honest, if you aren't willing to spend a few hundred bucks to do it the right way now, then I wouldn't suggest doing it at all.
700 bucks for a proper setup vs 4 grand for a transmission.........
