Do you mean you are storing the truck until Spring? If so, do you plan on exercising it every now and then (at least to keep parts lubricated and tires flexing)? I have heard that should be done when storing a vehicle long term (over 30 days).Greg said:...We bought the truck just for pulling and as its now winter here in Michigan its stored untill spring...
Ok Greg sounds like you got it bad buddy. By the way really nice setup you have there. Looks like a lot of fun. Welcome aboard by the way.Greg said:start it every now and then. I'm blessed to have a walkout basement with a garage door to store my truck. It never gets any colder then 60 degrees.
Now if I can only stop going down and sitting in it and making moter noise's LOL

Thanks Greg, I don't use the overdrive while towing. I tried it on one trip while in Florida since it was so flat. While in overdrive the trans temp went up quit a bit so put it back in 4th, temp went back down right away. Your mileage is about the same as what I get. I want to install a cat back system and a K&N cold air intake setup soon which should help some. As for the rear gear ratio, the big tow and off road package both use the same rear ratio (ours is 2wd, big tow, & off road) which is steeper then the non big tow or off road package vehicles. I don't recall what the the ratios right now, maybe after I finish this cup of coffee my brain will perk up some.Greg said:Nice truck and great color choice!! LOL
Now tell me, do you use overdrive and will it stay in overdrive on flat roads? What about MPG while towing? I only get 7.5 to 8.5 while towing but I don't use overdrive. I've tried to use it but as soon as I put it in overdrive my speed starts to drop. Then when I try to maintain speed and push down on the gas even a little it down shifts. Maybe I have a different rear end ratio with the off road package.
Looking forward to your answers
