I travel across steep mountain passes, and switch OD off on my camry to maximize engine braking and to prevent shift hunting or cycling on the uphill portions.
My dodge truck has sufficient torque to climb the grades in OD at 50 MPH or above. It also has an exhaust brake for the other side of the hills.
