Towing

  1. Can I tow in overdrive?
  2. Does a Banks Power system raise the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating)?

Q: Can I tow in overdrive?

Towing in overdrive is fine on the flat highway, but as vehicle manufacturers recommend, downshift to a lower gear on grades.

Q: Does a Banks Power system raise the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating)?

The vehicle manufacturer determines GVWR based on axle ratings, final gear ratios and suspension ratings, none of which can easily be altered. However, a Banks Power system allows you to tow within the GVWR more efficiently and easily, and to climb grades at a higher rate of speed.
