cam upgrade?

finally getting caught up with projects and wanted to see what yall recommend for a towing cam upgrade.
I wouldn't mind a little lope, but it needs to be stock converter friendly.
Right now I have plenty of power from idle to 2500, but it would be nice to have a little more up top.
Mods are in signature block.

Thanks in advance.

Richard at HiPoTek recommended this cam
HPT210X4 on a 114 lsa: http://stores.hi-potek.com/-strse-25...4x4/Detail.bok

I have about the same setup as your 97 Ram 1500 had, I didn't purchase the cam so have no knowledge on this cam other than his recommendation.
It's the same as a KRC 210 basically. You can look up KRC 210 cam on Youtube.

i need to lookup what the stock springs are rated for and calculate the total lift with the 1.7 roller rockers...would suck to drop a valve or collapse a spring.

Emailed Richard and he recommended "...the HPT210X4 on a 110 lsa would be a good choice for your set-up.

I'm sure at 180K+ miles I'll need to knock new cam bearings in, replace the lifters, and check the springs & rods.
This will be a winter project for sure.

My 01 1500 is a deer hunting toy so I couldn't justify the cam swap the wife wasn't buying it.

you will need a valve spring up grade. at least springs capable of .525 lift with all you have lifted. hughes 1110 seem to be the next modest step up.
do new lifters too.
