How long are the grades? How slow are you needing to go? How much are you using the service brakes now? Do you use them enough to make them hot? If you are feeling a little uneasy about any of these questions then the answer is yes. Better safe than sorry.

I've never been in a truck with an exhaust brake, but i know just shifting my tranny from OD to 2nd makes a HUGE difference in downhill speeds. I don't even have to use my brakes. Of course that is with just my truck, not towing.
Heck i can even feel a difference if i just lock out OD and let it stay in 3rd
