I've not seen a Ford F53 with an Allison transmission. The fact that some Allison trannies have built in retarders doesn't really apply to the OP's query of a recommendation for a brake saver for a V10.

Learn to use the Tow/Haul best thing for saving your brakes. I use to drive a 2012 F550 service truck, loved the Tow/Haul wish I had it in my MH.

Prevost has supplied this option on many buses also. Standard equipment on Liberty conversions.
