Default towing in OD with a diesel

ok so i keep reading posts about this but it seems that they are mostly about gassers. i only take my truck out of overdrive if i come to a decent sized hill. sometimes i just leave it in OD if i don't feel a loss of speed. my rig is a 94 turbo 7.3 non powerstroke but i've got 4:10 gearing as well. anyway my trans did die but not while i was towing, come to think of it i hadn't towed anything in a while. i don't have a trans temp gauge yet but i'm going to. I THINK i'm fine towing in OD as i neverr feel the truck don't have to power to move the load easily.

Just picture a regular cab 79 F150 on 35's rather than the tracker.

so is it bad on my trans or not as bad as a gasser would be.
