208 on the way there
180 on the way home.

still working on it though. it needs a thermostat but right now i have a blocker plate on the front to keep the air from flowing through it. when the air flows through it gets too cold. 130ish

Good man! Glad to hear it will keep the oil temps down! I figured you might have it partially blocked off for winter.

Ya on ours trucks we have to run a winter front even when towing the sled trailer to keep the temps up, we pull it off when the air temp gets up around 50F.

I bought a oil bypass system for the cooler. that way it will warm up to 180 before the bypass opens to go to the cooler. Get that installed hopefully by the end of the week.

Diesels definitely get expensive so I completely understand. Someone will be a happy camper.

No reason why you can't. Enjoy it!

yeah they can. its mostly the cold that really bothers me. I am really tired of starting it to warm up then only drive 10-15 minutes. If I drove a longer route it would be perfect. My basic drives are short. I do love it on trips though. Such a nice travel truck.
