Went for a dry run this weekend with my Mercury Mountaineer V8, 4.6L, 2 wheel drive SUV which also has a transmission fluid cooler system. We now have a sway bar, power brakes thingy and the weight control bars too. The entire towing package was installed by the dealer.
The drive was good but I need to get used to the noise specially down the city or subdivision. Down the highway there was not much noise I can hear. Goin over interstate bridges and with crosswinds it was interesting to say the least. I have to be very carefull doing so in high wind conditions. But overall the SUV worked well. Any towing advice since I don't have a truck but an SUV?
I'm going to get extended towing side view mirrors... any recommendations? My wife doesn't want to replace the stock ones so whatever is recommended, needs to be an addition (without any door or mirror modification of holes for screws etc.) to the existing ones. These extended mirrors, do they rattle too much?
Thanks in anticipation of your recommendations!
