Some people like automatics, some don't,personally I hate them.Depends a lot on the truck and how it's geared. I have a 24V. Dodge 5 speed with 4.10 rears.Will pull forever in fourth gear. Used to haul auction cars on a 48 ft. 3 car trailer out of Statesville, NC, up fancy gap mountain -7 miles- grossing 25,500.I could top out at about 50MPH with the pedal to the metal,if you hit it right,but if you had to drop back to 3rd gear you had to go to about half throttle or you would over rev. real fast.

Sounds like you might have had a 550 CAT with an 18 Speed too!!! How in the devil did you get through the scales at the bottom of the mountain grossing 105,000? They stopped me for something every time I went through there.

Well ya had to learn how to Play the scales and 99% of the time i had this little piece of paper that said it was OK. OR ya waited till they went home and turned off the lites . First truck was a 77 International 4300 Eagle with a built 855 small cam with a 13 speed and i can not tell ya what she could put out because the day we dynoed it she broke the chain and went out the door as they could not hold it . The last one was a 98 9400 I H with a 550 Cat with a 13 speed 3.90 rears and a Diesel Injection (now call Pittsburg Power ) box with this little switch that helped . It would go up hills a lot faster then i wanted to go down them. biggest load pulled with the 9400 was just shy of 2600000. the 4300 278800

Now I know, hauling them permit loads. Takes a Good truck for that kind of hauling in the mountains of NC VA and WV.

When they really sock it to ya if you are caught going down (south) on the old road (US Hwy 52). I had an aquantice try that, got caught, became a guest of the State of Virginia (Carrol Co. jail) for three days before he was able to make bail.

A lot of guys will run over to Galax and down 89 into NC. Now and then someone doesn't pay attention and wrecks pretty good. I figure that mountain looks steep enough it ain't worth it.

I took 52 north from Hillsille one time, traffic was backed up almost to Fancy Gap. Can't really say it saved any time, but it was an interesting drive.

What's REALLY FUN is going down Hwy (State road) 5 from Floyd VA to Stuart VA (in a big truck) especially when the road's wet. Otherwise you have to go about 40 - 50 miles out of the way.
