The 4.0L is a short stroke motor and you can tell too. It pulls flats in 5th just fine. But on even the smallest of hills it'll drop 10mph. Even at 70mph

If I know a hill is coming I just blip the throttle to get the TQ convertor unlocked, then go down into 4th. Then I give it enough throttle to maintain speed and the convertor will come back into lockup fairly quick. Then I pull the hill.

As long as I keep the rpms up above 2500 it'll pull just about any hill. If I let them drop below that.. it'll take 95% throttle (kickdown point) to **maybe** maintain speed.

Oh btw, that's me on the tube at about 40mph in the middle of a swing.

The trip back was uneventful. Pulled the mountian and measured the following. (fans never kicked on)

Pulled the mountian at 3000rpms in 4th. 4 people on board, bed full of luggage and a heavy tool box. Gas tank full. 66F ambient temps.

At the bottom of the mountian we were driving 65mph in 5th and were running a steady 197F coolant 166F tranny.
Shifted down into 4th and kept it at 58-60mph based on GPS. (3000rpms)
Temps climbed to 207F rad and 179F tranny as I reached the top.
On the down side the temps fell to 191F rad and 172tranny.

Up through KY & OH the ambient temps got up to 80F and the truck ran a very consistant 197F rad and 168F tranny.

Again.. no fans running on either the rad or the tranny cooler the entire trip. Yes they come on when I at gas stations and sitting still. But when moving down the hwy it just never got warm enough.
