same here! I have a programmer on my 2004 F250 Diesel,so I can cheat a bit with digital gauges displaying my Trans Temp, Egt Exhaust Gas Temp, engine temp ect....

Never use the cruise control while towing.

Not in this lifetime. I agree they diesels pull like crazy, I just don't like the noise or smell. New ones are better, but, I'm not spending that kind of money to have it sit 7 months of the year.

I use cruise and watch the tach half-heartedly. I'm too truck-stupid to understand what it and the other gauges are telling me. Nothing varies a whole lot, so I stick with that.

If I was you I would shift the truck on your own it will save your tranny. I do this now with my tundra and I did it with my old Titan. When your approaching a hill down shift so the tranny will lock in that one gear until you get to the top then shift it back up. It will be much easier on you and the truck.

Funny...I said the same thing about my '09 gassser "I just don't like the noise or smell" when it was under a load! LOL
