Best tunes for 06 6.0 for towing heavy

Does anyone make a good tune for pulling heavy 06 f350 6.0 4" dual exhaust bully dog programmer airmail. 4x4 crew cab king ranch. I pull trailers 3-4 times a week from 4k to 14k is there a system that can switch between better fuel mileage and pulling trailers.

My recommendation, stay with stock tuning or a very very mild custom SCT tow tune. You can make all kinds of good power with tuning, but for towing it's best to stay as close to stock as possible. Put a high power custom tune in and tow, and likely it won't be long before you are digging deep into your motor and pockets.

As harry said you may need deep pockets with tunes because they are maxed out on HP now and i would never get a new one 08-12 because of the fuel pump system on them if it goes out it's about 10k.
