surpising cold weather start

last night it was 4* out and my truck was sitting outside all day in the cold unplugged i thought it would be a pain to start but to my surprise it fired right up searched alittle so i gave it some throttle and it smoothed right out and idled perfect.

i got to say all the diesel i have been around didnt start nearly as easy in that weather when plugged in as mine did with out being plugged in.

i think i got a pretty reliable truck on my hands.

i was amazed so i thought i would tell u guys

Must be nice mine was plugged in and it only got to about 30* last night and I killed the battery tryin to start it. Finally got some WD-40 it still took a couple of tries. I think my GPR is fubared.

I share that cold weather starting pride with you because my truck has been firing right up just fine unplugged in the single digits outside. But once I'm back home its straight back to the plug in.
