First heavy load evaluation
I just put my 05 King ranch to it's first real work. She's my daily driver so she spends a lot of time unloaded so I wanted to run my data by you guys on today's 3.5 hour drive with about 500lbs in the cab, 1,000lbs in the bed and 5,500lbs in tow.
Outside air temp: 100F
Roads: Rolling hills on back country roads.
Speed: 45-60 depending on hill.
One thing I noticed is that even in tow/haul mode, the tranny would still go into O/D on long straight stretches. I thought in T/H mode it wasn't supposed to go into O/D at all. The only diff I noticed in T/H mode was that the shift-point was moved up to about 2,500 rpm which definitely helped getting her up to speed from a stop.
So do these numbers look good?
