    Of course, it doesn’t help much when you have an engine brake that doesn’t work below 8th gear. :rolleyes:

    That can get you killed on those 5 mile 9% grades in PA.

    US-30 has at least 2 that I know of, one on Allegheny Mountain and one between Breezewood and McConnellsburg. US-40 has a long climb eastbound from Uniontown.
