Default Same Problem

I have the same truck with the same issue. I pull a 30' travel trailer and was going the mountain and she wouldn't get over 30 mph. when I got back from vacation I bought a Superchip Flashpaq at the parts store, I installed it in the parking lot while I still had the travel trailer hooked up. When I pulled out of the parking lot of the parts store I could tell a difference, wasn't a very big difference but it did pull much better then it had been. I checked into it and everyone I spoke with told me it was the 3.55 gearing that was causing my problems. I am getting ready to try a cold air intake to see if that will help on the torque.
