First tow went smooth. Definitely could feel all the weight back there. Truck seemed to stop ok without brakes.

What hitch are you using? Looking to add one, since I removed the tow package to "speed things up" (all my other stuff is constrained too, so I should have left it...)

Factory tow. Worked with no issues.

Good to know. Thanks. I just received my BD 2.3 automatic last weekend.
Dumb question: Does the automatic have a “tow/haul” button? The manual doesn’t, but I’m guessing that’s because I already choose my own shift points.
This was my first time towing with a manual.

I have the tow package honestly I don't know. I do know it has a trailer sway control. I have never towed anything.

Vehicles now don't have a tow/haul or O/D off for non-tucks. The O/D off has been replaced with either just an "S" option or "M" for manual.

Most 1/2 ton trucks will still have it but not labeled, or you double click the button on the shifter like for the F150 column shifter.
