lgottler, as Kodiak stated above is very accurate in my opinion. My question would be, what is the excitement about towing in OD? In the long run, you will not save money in gas mileage (based on weight and torque required). If you get in a situation where he trans "hunts", you will actually be costing you money.

Like Kodiak stated, I will tow my bike trailer in OD but that is about all (95 Tahoe). Its weight is about 300lbs.
That's because tow/haul mode is a different beast than a straight up 4 speed auto.
