From the list, the only two things I see are:

1. 3.55:1 rear ratio. If you are gonna tow something heavy regularly, you may want a numerically higher (3.92:1) set of gears.

2. Rear drum brakes. You may want to consider a rear disc conversion but drum brakes work pretty well so this may be overkill.

Lucky you got a V10!!!
