Thanks, we took the F750. Monarch pass is 6% grade, 9 miles long on one side and 10 on the other. Full throttle 25mph up and 25mph down in 2nd gear so the VGT exhaust brake would hold it back. If I let it shift to 3rd the exhaust brake would not hold. I70 near the Eisenhower Tunnel is no joke either. I used to think Monteagle mountain was rough. I would have got to experience a runaway truck ramp or crashed off the side of a mountain if I had taken the K30.Awesome pictures and which truck did you take for that trip?
