Towing Chip

1998 Dodge 24 valve Cummins 5 speed 4x4 dually extended cab stocker
Going to convert to a service rig for the farm. It will be hauling fuel, tools, air compressor, and a welder. It will also pull some smaller implements to aid in the transport process. Air compressor, maybe 500-750lbs. Welder close to the same. About 500 gal of diesel x 8 lbs/gal is 4000lbs. Plus a whole bunch of tools. Towing anywhere from 1000-10000 lbs. Doesnt need to be a hot rod, but some more torque would be nice for idleing around the fields. Exhaust upgrades will be added soon. Thanks

Logan, are you looking for something that is shift on the fly? If it is going to stay in the same tune for long periods of time, a programmer will be cheaper.

You will also need gauges, do you want something that comes with built in gauges or are you planing on adding analog gauges?

I just want to make sure you get the best option for your application.

Well, I would be fine with just a programmer, but my dad thinks that when there is less load the horses should be turned down for economy purposes. I thought that if you upgraded and kept your foot out of it, then you wouldnt lose any mileage? And we have a pyro to put on ourselves. Shouldnt need boost with the stock turbo. If I can get some prices, then well see about the programmer vs shift on the fly.
