Batteries are only about 2 years old I think! Usually cranks up great I think it might be the cold...who knows. I'm still impressed!

I'm surprised the auto high idle didn't kick in during that time. Mine usually kicks in (I'm in San Antonio) when it's in the 30s within 30-45 seconds.

It did...just usually waits about a minute and a half then it kicks in.

Ya mine too but a nice cold start indeed! Little bit of romp, flair, and stutter and then she figured it out quite nicely and smooth from there. Sounds about the same as mine around that temp including the batteries which are 41 days old.


Good looking truck too.

It will it takes a minute or two in those temps. The PCM lets the oil get flowing first
