Put your truck in T/H and let it buck. The truck knows what to do. I’m towing in 6th most of the time. There’s no problem with it, it’s quieter and better mileage.

Also, don’t use manual mode when towing, it disables automatic grade braking.

Wishing it sounded like my old LB7 with Banks exhaust. . . . . . .
