2010 DC 5.7 TRD 4X4 w/tow package
Having my Equilizer hitch with sway control swapped over to the new truck for my toy hauler this weekend and wanted to get some opinions. My trailer (18ft) is about 6-6,500 loaded with motorcycles and water/gear, for everyone towing do you normally use D with tow/haul or S mode? On my old truck I used to tow in 3rd with the 4 speed transmission, figured the Toyota would not pull the load in 6th using D. Better to run in S mode using 5th or T/H in D?
Friend of mine owns an 08 Titan and we just got back from Beaver Run out near Ohio, very impressed with his truck towing. Put it in 4th and ran about 65-70 up the PA Turnpike, it only downshifted to 3rd a couple times on long massive hills, otherwise it maintained the speed pulling most grades. Titan is way better then my old Chevy Avalanche 5.3 with 4.10 pulling, hoping the Tundra does well.
