Re: Towing jeep--need power

do you tow with the OD turned off? i have a 1994 RAM 1500 and have no problems pulling a loaded trailer as long as the OD is off. with the OD off, your RPMs will also be closer to where the engine makes more power. at 75mph, my engine is turning about 2900rpm and has plenty of power to spare. i had no problems pulling my 4000lb boat through the hills of western KY, even hit 90mph a couple times to pass people... i would (if you haven't already) replace the air filter with a K&N and the catalytic converter with a High-flow model (i run a Random Technology stock replacement). hope this helps! matt
