    you mean downshift to slow down? I wouldn't try that why risk for break transmission.

    The Ally does it automatically Mil

    I have done that in my Fords ever since I got an auto tranny

    It will easily double the brake life especially pulling trailers

    I knida thought of adding an exhaust brake

    Classic slider pin binding. Make sure you clean the heII outta the hole the pin goes into and the pins, then smear on a good bit of synthetic brake lube. The caliper should move freely on the pins. Good luck with the next 200k! :D

    Nice bar, man. Are those flashers or just lights on the back of the toolbox?

    Nice rig. Very purdy.
