I haven't been over the mountains yet and it does feel the weight going up a steep hill. Pulls fine so far though and once I am up to speed, she keeps 60-65 pretty easy, although it kicks up to some pretty high rpm's when it downshifts on a steep hill. I am not worried about getting over the mountains really but I may be going pretty slow to keep the rpm's below 3500. But like I said, right about now that Power Stroke would be nice.

I am averaging right at 9mpg in the small amount of towing I've done so far.

Why would you limit your vehicle to an RPM under its peak power???? It's naturally aspirated, let it eat like it's designed to.
