I guess I have turned into an old lady... For me redlining is 3,000rpm. My '94 has 179.xxxmi on it, and I baby it. Winter is a bad time to walk at midnight in -20* with a blizzard blowing.
Actually, I wouldn't venture outside the truck since I'm carrying winter survival gear onboard. After a week I might be hungry and bored, but I'll still be alive. An X-cab is a wonderful thing
