Hi, My Name is***** have over 20 years experience repairing vehicles. I am a ASE Certified Master Auto Technician. I am confident we can resolve your problem together.Please remember I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies to get to a satisfactory resolution.I also try to give all of the information you may need expecting a positive rating. If there is any reason I cannot get a positive rating please let me know.

There are numerous places you can get it performance tuned. It will help with the towing, but probably not with the mileage. You can do some calling to some RV places or Diesel tuners as the diesel tuners can also tune the gas engine. You can also purchase a program like HP tuners and do it yourself if you are PC savvy and mechanically inclined. Be aware that minor changes can make for severe damage if not done properly. The 6.0 in my opinion is a horrible choice for towing. The diesel is a much better option

You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. A rating is required from you rating me. I am not an employee of this website. I do not have control over the fees, or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative, or not at all you still pay. I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
