hauling / towing

Recently I started hauling stuff around for my friends in the bed of my truck. Well my friends have told their friends and well.... you know how it works.... I know move people on a part time basis and
making some good money at it.
My question is this..
Should I upgrade the engine and the transmission oils or would they be fine? ----------------------------------------------------- users trucks from this group listed below ----------------------------------------------------- http://users.eastlink.ca/~mikemcneil/index.htm

geez, that's not even a load. no, you don't have to do anything special, but an auxillary trans cooler is never a bad idea.

I know that's not a load. Just want to see what I can start putting into this thing before I go balls out.

ROMOTE TRANS COOLER. A MUST for dang near ANY vehicle! Get a good big one. Twice the size you think you would need. HD fan clutch. 10W-40 or higher viscosity oil. Load range E tires. You can go full synthetic in place of ALL fluids whether hauling or not. LOTS of benefits, and more money, but 2-3 times more miles between oil changes.
Oh yea, get a 3/4T with a 6.5TD 4x4 and you will be farther ahead! Just remember to run 15W-40 Rotella in it!
