    Good morning
    I hope I am not imposing by messaging you but don't know where else to turn. Have a question regarding my transmission. I own a 2001 f250 7.3 CCLB 4wd 4r100 trans. I run noble 1 syn oil and gauges. Just bought new toy hauler and towed in the mountains for the first time. OD is off. Was wondering on down hill slopes if it ok to pull the trany into 2 or 1 for more braking. Up hill was fine and temps never over 200. Plan on installing a TQ lock switch but would really like your input on this.
    Thanks, Tony "salt life"

    My Sierra Blanca in the sig pic was a great pickup for 11.5 years. I sold it a coupla years ago. I drove a hand-me-down 2003 F-150 SuperCrew 4.6L 2V for a while, but it was unacceptable for towing more than a rowboat. Replacement is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew Lariat that tows my 5,000-pound TT like a dream.
