Great to hear.

The hunt, as well. I try to tell my son every year: It's not about the killing. It's about the experience.
(Which is a good thing, because I don't fill many tags. I get lazy once I'm able to enjoy the view, watch some herds meander around, and feel that crisp fall air at high altitude.)

The advantage on tight roads and switchbacks is one of the reasons why I bought mine. ...And one of the reasons why I still can't sell it. (Even though the new Ranger has more than doubled the value of my 15 year-old model over the last 12 months; and now would be the time to do so.)
The turning radius of my '04 isn't much better than my brothers' F-250s. But the fact that I'm notably narrower and do still have a shorter wheelbase mean I can set up for the turns differently and get through corners they'd have to 3-point (or more). (The other brother's GMC was the same story, but he downgraded to a Honda Pilot...)

Tow package includes some extra electronics. Tow/haul mode, which changes the shift points and allows for more engine braking while descending, for one. I'm not sure if the BLIS accounting for the trailer is part of the tow package or not, but mine with the tow package has it (seems to enable when I turn on tow/haul mode). Had to set up trailer length/width in the dash system.

I got a coronavirus deal on mine. So far loving the truck, but have only taken my camper out for a test tow so far.
