Default a slow way to tow

I reached a top speed of 53MPH in 4th gear. I tried 5th and the truck slowed down. The 46's rob a lot of power. The BDMT and trailer weigh @9k. Pulled fine, just slow.

It looks more like a LDMT behind that.

I had a mid sixties Ford F800 that would top out at 48 mph empty. It took the fresh 391 motor about a mile to get it up to that speed. I like my diesel dump truck better now.
