Hah thats Awesome Radian. whats been your setup/experience to towing a boat that size? Eventually I hope to tow a boat around that size. Plan on regearing my van, upgrading to HD springs and adding a trans cooler.

So far made one 300 mile hwy trip. Several others on local city streets to go from home to boat ramp. Suprisingly, it has done a great job pulling that thing out of the water.

ALWAYS have the tow/haul button on.
Pull on ramp in gear 1 only.

Only modes... Really big transcooler... And Timbren SES spring helpers. Also Hidden hitch. All three as found in searches on this board.

Radian.
