    I’d stay on what you are currently running if you are happy with it. I’ve towed over 5,000 miles on 87 tunes and it’s night and day over the factory tunes. The higher octanes may be better but the locations I travel to seem to not have higher octane fuels available. I’ll run them if I can find them, but I don’t switch tunes.

    I’ve switched tunes and towed immediately after flashing and others have swapped at gas stations after getting fuel. It’s no big deal.

    Unrelated to OVT but what are your lift specs? It looks great even with the shell and trailer back there.

    I’m flashed to 1.05.1 87 gearlock specifically for towing. It’s a performance tune so it also works well without gearlock engaged. I’m towing 3150# loaded, (S4, 55-60 mph, 2600 rpm, trans pan temp 185) and the truck is perfectly suited for this duty in the area where I live. Mostly flatland with the odd incline here and there. It never has to be downshifted from 4th to handle the overpasses and inclines. That’s the beauty of gearlock. Just press on the skinny and she zips up the hill in 4th.

    I haven’t tried the base tune for towing but I suspect it would work just as well with probably slightly higher rpm at highway speed in S4. But I’d miss the gearlock.

    In a previous post buried somewhere in this thread, @OVTune did recommend a performance tune for towing.

    All the best.

    All I can say is you're a SOB lol. If that's the 19FBS that's the exact trailer I've been wanting to get, but we're too upside down on our current. We still love our current trailer though and people are actually starting to go with us so all that extra space is finally getting used after 3 years.
    Mine is 4200lbs (loaded and weighed on a truck scale) and 8' wide (which does make a big difference) and I'm running 93perf. Pulls like a champ. Way better than stock.

    GearLock was the tune that OVTune recommended for towing btw. I may switch back to it but i do like using ECT.

    How do you like those 4.88’s?

    Depending on your elevation, 4500ft or higher it’s typically better to run lower octane to avoid running too rich. I just did about 1200 miles through Idaho and the 87 base tune ran great in the high elevation and I netted consistently 20mpg or better

    It is and it’s a great trailer.
    I’ve put a lot of work into it. And money! Compost toilet, 200ah lithium, 300w solar, 60lb propane, off road suspension, the works. Highly recommend


    Think I’m going to go the 87 gearlock route this trip to test it out.
    I’ll report back after July 4th.

    Wouldn’t care much for the truck without them! Or without the OVTune for that matter.

    South Texas. Low elevation.

    Is it possible for the dealership to flash the truck back to stock? I know the tune isn't detectable, but my truck felt like it went back to stock immediately after the 15k service last week. It seems really strange and I thought I was just crazy, but after 3 days of driving on it, I had enough and flashed the 87 performance tune again. It immediately felt the way I remembered before the 15k service and it feels perfect again after putting a few miles on the tune.

    I’m still stock tires and suspension w/ 91 base. Thinking of pulling the tigger on them today. So much positive feed back with Ovtune and regearing that I think it’s worth getting the best drivability possible before doing suspension/tires.

    Well, it's been a year since I jumped on board the OVTune train as one of the first dongleless users, still (mostly) enjoying 1.04. Life got busy and I stopped following this thread in August, pretty content with my improved drivability. For the last 6 weeks I've been catching up, reading every post from where I left off last summer. Painful at times, boring at times, but generally entertaining and very informative. Wow, so much has happened! A huge shout out and thank you to Mat, who has remained tirelessly dedicated to making our Tacoma experience better and better. He has remained classy and professional despite being pushed to the limit by a few unhappy customers, but I'm glad to see the overall impression of this tune's development has been so positive.

    I've had 16K trouble free miles (12K on the 91 tune), have only ever filled up with 93, but don't want to be the clueless guy who asks "gee, what tune should I load?" Everyone has different needs and God knows, all of our trucks are "unique" (inconsistent as hell from the factory!) But I do welcome any advice or tips while we wait for Mat's next info release. My thoughts are to jump right in to 93Perf as I don't anticipate needing or using GL, and I'm seeking to maximize the fun factor and get the most out of the limits Toyota gave us.

    Thoughts? I'm an '18 Pro (04A60), no TSB update, without any real issues (stutter, misfires, etc. that I can detect). Basically, I've been pretty lucky compared to many (or maybe a dumb guy with lower standards!) but it seems moving up to 1.05 is a no-brainer. Any advice is appreciated and I'll likely need a little guidance when I pull out that god-forsaken Windows10 laptop, dust it off, update all necessary OVTune software, drivers, etc. and see if I can remember how to flash! Thanks to all for the thousands of posts that have brought me back!

    We had an issue with the hubs for the dyno so we've been set back a few days.
