Tow Rig Upgrades

Like many, we've had our tow rig (a 2007 FJ Cruiser) for many years before getting into the ORT game. This last week we did our first major road trip with the truck & trailer and noticed that while our FJ is awesome on the trail, it's not amazing at towing a 1500lb trailer uphill in the wind, especially running 33" tires. We're looking into upgrade options to help remedy the situation. So we're wondering what the best upgrades are (in general) to make a tow rig perform a little better on the highway.

Some of the things we're considering include taller gears, a supercharger, less restrictive air intake for on the highway, and other performance upgrades. You can use Facebook below to comment & leave your thoughts:
