This "it's do dangerous to be alive" nanny-state mentality is why plastic shopping bags have to have warning labels.

I would reiterate everything I already said about there still being power assist for steering and braking so long as the engine remains spinning, whether that power comes from burning fuel or the vehicles forward inertia is irrelevant, and also the part where I specified "empty stretch of road, yada yada" but if you didn't read it once, why would I assume you'd read it this time...

'95 2500 ECLB 4x4, 334k and paused due to epic transformation in progress.

leaving your rig in gear going down a hill should be standard practice... just sayin, you will find you won't be roasting your brakes as much going down a long and/or steep hill. in an auto, downshifting a gear doesn't hurt either. a few small ways to make your brakes last longer.
