Default high altitude towing

chitownjnco- Have towed with this setup for about 25,000 miles. My overall MPG is 9.3 Not really bad considering the overall terrain and at times 50 MPH crosswinds. I dont think front HD shocks will help in towing applications. I didnt install the TLC system until I had towed about 20,000 miles but after I did I dont experience the tire cupping problem I had before. You dont really need any help in the rear suspension if you arent going to tow those kind of miles all at once but if your in it for the long haul it will pay for itself. Just be sure to adjust the distribution hitch properly for proper handling going down the road. I will attempt to attach some pictures with the factory rear suspension and then with the TLC system.
Also I agree with what Gantman offered. He seems to know our trucks pretty well.
