Will do. What is everyone's opinion on the cold weather option in the bulletproof kit. Is it really needed? The truck will be driven in north florida. So the coldest it will ever see is low 20s. I usually let my truck run for 10-15 min in the mornings while I get ready anyways so I don't really see a need for the thermostat. What is everyone else's opinion?
The usual guidance is that unless you routinely see snow plows in the winter time where you drive that you do not need the cold weather kit.
I would recommend getting the heavy duty cooler from BPD. In hot places the more oil cooling the better. I have the Tall version.
