Moving to WI from the desert!!! Whats my truck going to need
Hey gang. Packing up and heading back to God's country. After 7 years in Arizona the fiance and I decided that we miss the family enough to look for a career opportunity up in Wisconsin.
So, come next Thursday I'll begin my voyage home. We'll be back in La Crosse, starting my new job on Monday!
I currently have an 06 F250 with 78K on the ticker. It has an intake/dual exhaust and a superchips programmer (kinda lame, came with the truck).
Anyway, Besides scraping my windshield, anything that's going to be a major change when I get my truck up there. I probably don't have the block heater but I guess I should look. Never needed it down here.
Also, anything else that I should change like oil type or anything. I've never owned a diesel up there but when I was up there with my 7.3 Excursion it always started in the cold but didn't like it.
I'm not going to be packing a lot of miles so any tips for a short commute?
Hope to meet some of you guys, this seems like a great board, haven't spend enough time here yet but got the "lifetime" membership to support the site.
Also, I'll be running my Explorer in Tough Trucks in La Crosse in March and looking for places to ride my dirt bike up there if anyone has any suggestions.
Oh yeah, are the law enforcement going to harass me much? I'm thinking the 5% tint won't be welcomed up there, how about the height, exhaust. I know my tires stick past the fender a little but I do run a HUGE mudflap on the rear that covers everything. I just remember hearing about people getting pulled over because any aftermarket exhaust is not legal up there. That's quite a bit different from what I'm used to down here.
