Have to go to Jackson Hole Wy. I was going to take Rte 22 through the Teton Pass but people warned me about the 10% grade. Will it be a problem pulling a 5th with a gas pickup?
I fear burning out the brakes Etc. I burned the brakes coming out of Los Angeles on a long 7%.
After redoing the rotors and pads and changing the brake fluid, the mechanic said to use your lower gears and tap the brakes lightly. Just don't relish the idea of no brakes coming down a mountain pass. Next truck will be a diesel with compression braking.

Never actually driven it, but recently posted a question about this route on a different forum re towing a 30' TT. I was advised NOT to take that route due to the steep grade, twists & turns, & steep drop off.


There is an alternate route to Jackson from Idaho Falls via Hwys 26/89/26 (via Hoback). Haven't driven it (yet) but was told it was a much easier drive.
