    The Timbren Axle-Less Suspension changes the way you may think about a trailer and how it performs. From the system having no through axle to the dual Aeon rubber springs, you will have a ride so quiet that you’re going to wonder if you lost the trailer. Built to perform in the harshest of...

    OK folks I finally figured out what to do with an F150 eco-boost while towing a trailer to reduce the chances of the temperature gage zipping up to hot and getting an overheating alarm. I’ve done some testing pulling a 7500 pound 26 foot cougar trailer up some pretty good grades in Idaho and...

    What's the best discussion for 2017 2.7l towing upgrades?
  5. F150 Ecoboost Towing
    After reading these forums for a few years and having some issues towing in the desert southwest I decided to upgrade the capabilities of my F-150 for better towing. I have a 2016 Lariat Supercrew 3.5. Bought it new with regular tow package and brake controller. I love this truck, but it...

    Took the trailer for its first tow about a month ago and was pleasantly pleased. I knew going into this I was going to have to modify to get the towing experience that I want, and I have never left anything I owned stock. I have researched about airbags but never could make up my mind on...

    I pull a 30' RV with my 2016 Supercrew Ecoboost and a ProPride hitch. 7500 lb loaded trailer. My question relates to the brake controller. My trailer pushes my truck when I apply the brakes. Of course, it should not do this. I set my Gain to 9 at the moment. I noticed the Output is not...

    Hey all, so my wife and I have a bit of a conundrum - in that I didn't check the payload sticker of my truck before we bought it (long story, I did research on a comparable truck assuming the payloads would be comparable - I was wrong). Long post ahead. We need to tow a TT with the following...

    Yes, I know, another forum about trailer towing. However, I want to limit the responses on this one. I have posted about this before, and am still battling it. I have tried all the normal fixes. I have been to multiple trailer dealers. I have upgraded tires. I have tried multiple WD...

    I absolutely LOVED how my truck towed using the heavy tow tune on the superchips tuner....but the performance tune was terrible....kept rpms too high, transmission kept searching, and turbos would surge and unload on WOT. But I can't say enough about the tow tune. I tow a 30ft travel trailer...

    As you may know, towing regulations can be as clear as mud. Especially when you get different answers from different sources. I finally got around to spending an 1.5 hours at the license plate agency today. While getting my new tags, I told the employee that I did not tow anything at the...
