Probably forgetting some things. Truck is in great shape. Made it cross country and back. Climbing 10k foot mountain passes in July got a little warm so when we got home I upgraded from a single to dual electric fans. Problem is fans are so powerful they take more amperage than my factory alternator puts out so after running for a while it doesn't have enough battery power to restart. 2 interstate batteries are a year old. I have a manual clutch fan but need to have a shroud made or upgrade to higher amperage alternator. No hesitation to get in this thing and drive anywhere. Have lots of spare parts as well.
