Towing question

I have a 2001 f350 auto. I tow a 36ft 5er weighing 14k. While most of the time the brakes work just fine but in the long mountain passes they could use some help. What are the options. Thanks for your help.

if your looking for an upgraded brake system go with the SSBC upgrade.... that system is more expensive than going with an exhaust brake so i would try that first
