I tow almost every week with mine. Usually about 1200 lb. boat rig(couple hundred miles each trip). Truck still gets about 24/25 mpg at 65 towing.

Have about 10,000 miles now and about 4,000 towing.No problem at all.

I have a 14' duck hunting boat that will pull down the highway at 70 mph in 5th gear (4 cyl) with no problems. As mentioned above, dont overdo it.
