I have a 2500HD 4X4 gmc D/A juiced I currently have 33" tires but I am thinking of going to 35" when I lift it. Does anyone think it will affect my towing capabilities or will I not really notice? My trailer is about 10K loaded.

Doin't know abut pulling with the juice but you would have noticed a power loss without the juice when you went from 245's to 33's. How are you going to hook the fifth up when you lift and go to 35's and whats the added weight of the bigger tires/wheels and lift hardware going to do to your available payload/pullin capacity.

My boat and trailer only amount to about 5K# but with the Quad Stealth on the 70HP tune and 35" tires the power is there in abundance. It feels. seat of pants, as powerful as no trailer running stock or better IMO FWIW! I like it a lot!!
