I had the occasion to move my son about 900 miles from Glenwood Springs, CO to Sparks, NV pulling an 8 by 4 foot Uhaul loaded to the gills. The truck handled the load extremely well without any problems. My gas mileage was OK (22) and I liked the way everything worked with the tow package installed in the truck. Kept it at about 65 mph with the trailer on but moved up the the 80 to 85 mph range on the way home. Excellent ride and handling was great. Loved having satellite radio and listening to all sorts of music and talk while on the road. Unfortunately took a rock to the windshield on the way home so I'll need to replace the windshield. Hope it isn't a pain in the ass to replace.
