Question Hotter climate & my truck

Ok so I'm moving from Alberta to Texas in a few weeks, where I'm sure it will be hotter than hell. Is there anything I should change in my truck, particularly fluids, when I get there? I don't know much about this sort of thing, and the service guy at the shop was useless. I just got my oil changed but am probably due for the tranny fluids too. Any tips would be appreciated

Nah, I think it'll be fine.

Going to be there at least three years, unless I get too lonely and homesick first!
