Getting ready to plow/need some help
I hate to say it but winter is right around the corner, so while the weather is still nice id like to get a few things done on my truck before I start plowing.
My major concern is my auto trans, I want to upgrade the cooler but cant see spending $350 for a 6.0 cooler, is there an aftermarket cooler thats better than the stock one on my truck? I plan on installing a trans temp gauge as well.
If the trans is getting too warm whats the best way to cool it off, stop plowing and let the truck idle? Turn the truck off?
Can I drive about an hour at highway speeds with the plow on the truck and not hurt anything? My girlfriend live about an hour away and she has a huge driveway, I'd like to plow it for her but I dont know if the drive will get things too hot.
If anyone has any other plowing tips or suggestions Id love to hear them, this will be my first winter plowing so im sure i'll need help. Thanks guys
