The 3:55 or 3:73 gears would have been better. I have the 3:55 gears in mine and with the 7,000 lb trailer it moves along. I did not use cruise control in the hills. towed from WNY to Virginia Beach, Va and WNY to Goshen, IN for the rally for just a couple of the longer trips. Others were in NY and PA with hills.

I used to tow a comparable trailer with a E150 high top conversion van that didn't have your 365 hp.

With a good equalizer hitch and sway control, you're good to go with your 1/2 ton truck in the hills of VA and West VA.

West Virginia is one of those places many have never taken a detour through. I used to have to go to Lewisburg every 3 mos. for work. It is truly a treasure of a place off the beaten path.

3:55 was my selection instead of 3:73 wanted a little better mileage not towing. I also have Max. payload package/tow package. I pull 4,500lbs through the Sierra mountains, and travel to Washington from Cali with no issues. Cruise on or off depends how I feel that morning. Personally the TT the bigger TV.
