First major road trip.

I've had my truck for about seven months now and I'm taking it on the first road trip. Heading to the beach on vacation and it's about 300 miles one way. I'm a little nervous hope everything goes well plan on keeping a close eye on temps via the Edge CTS. One good thing gonna be seeing an old friend while there and he's a master diesel tech for Ford been working on these things for the past 15 years. I'll post updates as we go.

300 miles will not get the truck warmed up, thought you were going somewhere. LOL

First update didn't make it out of the driveway. Just but new battery in it in December and it wouldn't start. Better in the driveway than on the road somewhere.
