How much weight has your 6.4 towed?

I just towed over 14,000 for about a two hour trip today. I had my truck tuned to tow mode with my SCT which made it seem like nothing. I was wondering how much weight rest of the members have towed around.

I've been at 32k GCWR many times. truck= 11000 lbs, 4 ton in the bed and pulling another 13000 lbs. It's easy to over load. And when I have those weights the truck shudders bad when taking off from a stop (axle wrap). Not short on power but I don't like the axle wrap.

BTW- I do not condone overloading. My truck has a 30k or 33k (can't remember) GCWR.

And in the pic the truck is not squating, it's just parked in a dip.

I usually tow around 14k day to day with mine. No problem at all stock, but Spartan tuned it's amazing. 13mpg on a 200 mile trip towing around that weight yesterday.
