Plus it's hard on your transmission when you're towing, too, to be in OD.
As I mention in another thread, everytime I get in the truck, the 1st thing I do is turn off the OD and the VDC (unless maybe it's raining) until I get on the highway, or exceed a constant 50+ mph...if I'm on the freeway going less than 60 mph, it also goes off...the truck just doesn't have enough low end grunt at those speeds and it bogs it down; I don't like to force it to downshift, cause then it moves up quicker than I want/need it to.
But, to answer orig. question, going up hills it's good idea to turn it off, unless you're doing a steady 70-75 mph where the truck seems to be in a better position/rpm to maintain that speed without bogging or wanting to downshift.
