Mountain grades always are the test.....both up and down. Black Mountain in NC driving west tests the mettle of any truck.....I'm in 5th doing 50MPH at best at the crest......I-75 N from KnoxVegas is a 65MPH climb in 5th as well at about 1/3 throttle. Getting down the mountain is the challenge, I practice stab braking to avoid head fade and slow some what before starting my descent.
