I could have given it more gas while climbing those grades, but was afraid to get the transmission even hotter than it was already getting, but it sounds like I should shift from S4 on level grades to S5 and give it more gas to try and increase speed to get it to lock. Will this keep transmission temps lower than trying to "baby" it up the grade at S3 maintaining 40mph?

I attached a photo of the conditions of the 4Runner at the top of the Santiam Pass yesterday.



Thanks.
