Hey I never had this problem before, but I drove my truck to school this morning it was fine, it was about 22deg out, then I parked my truck at school for about 3hrs it was then 17deg out. not the coldest day of the yr, we've had worse. I leave to get on the highway and the truck was running high RPM's like it didnt want to shift, then as I drove it a little more the upshifts got a little better, but whenever I let off the accelerator, it felt as if it was in TOW/HAUL mode, I hit the switch a few times just to see, but that didnt seem to do anything. As I drove the truck more and more today, it has done the same thing, it will take long to upshift and really deccelerate hard. I never had a problem like this before and this is my second winter with this truck. Anyone have any suggestions or had the same problem??
THanks for the help.

Transmission will change to higher RPM shifting if the engine is cold. It's all part of the "heater performance mode".


I'd rather be a bit chilly than listen to my cold LBZ rev higher than it needs to!!

low traction mode

I see an option about low traction which the transmission will apply lower torque to the rear wheels if the slip. Does the 5 Speed ally have this option? If so do have to select 2WD again if already engaged to activate or I'm I smoking something??

Good stuff..:D

Who let the cold in? Burr. Burr Burr...
