Ran the 4 peaks trail for the second time sunday.
I noticed on the first run I really used the brakes a ton on the downhill section close to the end on the way down from 4 peaks.
Brakes were pretty smelly and I know brakes pretty good.
This time I put the truck in 4low and let the engine brake help out .
Now I did keep it under 25 mph so I don't think I hurt it that way.
Is it bad to use it this way?
I can only down shift to 3 on the 2 wheel drive and it is pretty much freewheeling and I have to ride the brakes a bunch.
What can I do in an automatic other than 4 low?
