towing 4 bikes you dont need to watch anything. After towing heavy over 30k miles with 6.0, I have come to think the most important temp to watch is EOT, then ECT, then EGT. The stock dash heat gauge shows solely ECT and is fairly accurate in regard to warning you against overheat. With a stock or tow tune, EGTs will not be an issue. The tranny in 05-07s has no issue with heat that the earlier models did. I have overheated my 6.0 towing crazy heavy loads in insane heat of NV and AZ, tranny never has issues.
