Transmission Kits?

Hello

I have a 2001 Ford 250 Super Duty 7.3

Took it to the mountains for the first time last weekend and going down a steep hill I noticed a smell from the brakes (no trailer attached).

So I started to look into ways to help control speed, going down hills with the truck and trailer.

I stopped into a shop here in town and asked about a Jake Brake. I was advised this might not work on my vehicle - is this true? I was told the transmission is in a free spin in drive and overdrive.

So I was doing some other checking and found a transmisson kit -
Tugger2 or similar Ford Lincoln Mercury Reprogramming Kits


Is there other or better ways to handle this issue?

Thanks

PACBrake

I also found a exhaust brake called a pacbrake and that looks very interesting. Anyone have any experience with a 7.3 and pacbrake?
