it from 6k. Here in vt we look at a 4k peak from
700ft. Ive driven a bunch of roads in pa and the
inclines are deceiving. Long long gradual grades
catch you by surprise and all of a sudden your
scramblin for a lower gear.( 17 ram dually g56 tranny) My rig is pretty capable and i can do
anything ive found so far. But the OP has a gasser
and i can understand his concern. He didnt mention what hes towing though.
We passed a f150 the other day towing a
full size backhoe. I kind of chuckled. But really
it wasnt funny. He was squatted pretty bad and
doing about 50 on i80.
