Good advice, stickdog. I was planning on doing just that, probably truck speed limit on the cruise control.
We're 27,000 pounds total weight. A lot lighter than fully loaded trucks. But better safe than sorry plus we're in no hurry.

A serious road. I used to go over it often.
Gear down and control your speed. Acting like a trucker is great advice.
Expect winter weather.
It is beautiful.

Pay attention to the weather. Snow up high already this week. Just talked with a friend who camped up on Grand Mesa a couple of days ago and had thundersnow with accumulation on the highway at 10,500', lower than the summit of Wolf Creek Pass.

The switchbacks on the west side of the pass can be quite dangerous if one approaches them at too high of speed. Check out the video on the CDOT website: Wolf Creek Pass
