Recent trip Towing to Las Vegas

I recently took a trip towing a 2004 GMC Canyon to a friend in Las Vegas. My 2014 Tundra 1794 equipped with a SC did the trick. Going up the grade I could cruise 75+ mph in triple digit temperatures.



Took a slight detour on the way back. The TRD Pro suspension worked great off-road.

Hard to tell because the mpg gauge is off after the SC installed. I don't think it was much worse than if I did not have the tow. I filled up before the cahon pass and filled up again after Primm.

Just looks like that because it's leveled. Also I think bags would take away from the pro suspension. @2010?
