Other option is to get up to 67-68 mph and let up on the pedal and it shifts to overdrive, set the cruise at 65 and go merrily along the way.
Exhaust brake, I use in hilly terrain and once I exit the expressway. I like the extra help with stopping.

I will have to try that, I drive at 63 mph, maybe I am not going fast enough. Now days I try to stay off the interstate and 60 is about what I run. I keep truck in tow haul and mostly with the exhaust brake on. I wish I got better fuel mileage.
