Working on buying an 05 Titan LE with BT and Off-Road package. I have a 24' Camper that I currently tow with my Ford Expedition. Weighs about 4500lbs dry. I know when towing with the Expedition, I need to disable overdrive. Do you have to do the same with the Titan, or is that what "Tow-mode" does? Do you use "Tow-mode" and disable overdrive?

It changes the shift points 1-3. It would be best to keep it in 4th gear while towing but you might be ok leaving it in 5th just keep a eye on your tranny temps. Our trucks don't mind running at a higher RPM...

I've only been locking in '4' for anything over 6,000-lbs... My boat is 5500-lbs and has been towing great in 'D' w/ Tow Mode so I've been taking advantage of it. :dunno:

Tow mode seems to drop it out of 5th at a very comfortable time for me. And the tranny temp guage has not moved enough to cause any concern.
