Abby gets all the attention
Needed a video of that "tractor pull"!!
Decided to get off the road in OK a few days back as the sun was going down (empty trailer @ 9800-lbs; loaded was 49,900-lbs; near zip traction on Drives) as the only travelers were a few RVers. No truck traffic. West of OKC was a disaster, I was a little east on IH40.
Parked, felt a little like a wuss. Had a French Canadian trucker pull in next to me. Expressed my less than manly feelings about stopping early. Sorry I can't do his accent -- or perfectly reproduce his sentiments concerning iced bridges, ha!
Bet you missed the ED. Cummins and others recommend the use of a winter front up to 40F. Comes off at 41F. Well worth having one. That, and some DIY plumbing underhood to capture hot air near the turbo to keep IAT high is worth the trouble.
The latest big truck - a KW -- has factory fuel heating. Something to add to my CTD with the MOPAR Extreme Duty Filter Kit. Hopefully the ED has this covered. DIY get-by is to carve a styrofoam block.
An Espar or Webasto diesel-fired coolant heater can provide cab heat, and, with a little DIY, to a truck bed with topper. Those who have 'em, love 'em.
