I'm going to go test drive a '14 3500 68rfe 3.42 in the next couple of days, but I will not be able to hook a load to it for the test drive. My question is would the truck stay in 6th pulling 10-15k lbs on moderate hills? I had an '01 2500 nv5600 that you could just put it in 6th, set the cruise and go with no problems. I currently have a 6.0 powerstroke with the 5R110 that will downshift or unlock the torque converter on even slight hills on the interstate with 12k behind it, which I find annoying. So I'm curious if I switch back to a cummins w/68rfe if it will cruise on the interstate with that kind of load and be able to hold 6th.
