Can I ask you boys a question? Do ya'll plow snow around your house, on the roads, or where exactly? Also, do ya'll do it to get paid, or just so you have a clear path?
I can't imagine having to plow my way through snow in order to get from point A to point B :duh:
I keep overheating on the hills. Have the plow only a couple inches off the ground, and it gets hot, around 235-40. trans temp up to 195. Had to pull off the road to cool her down. Temps stay fine on level roads. As far as plowing, put a good set of rubber underneath her, and there like a mini bulldoser.
I have a LMM...bone stock. I didn't know the temp gage was off. thanks for the info...Was the 195 trans temp was too high? maybe ill bring it to the stealer and have it checked out.MyBowtie, I don't know if u know this or not but temprature gauges on the LMM's are 20 degrees off. Meaning your 235-240 is really on 220-235 degrees. As long as the truck is cooling itself off via fan than there's going to be no problem, however if the fan isn't cooling the engine than this is an issue. Do you have an LMM or LBZ?
If you are towing heavy and thru hills. The temp will hit that high, again not a problem. No matter what diesel u have, if the temprature is hot, pulling a heavy load up grades, you're motor will get hot. Cummins do it, powerstrokes do it and so do duramaxes. The problem with the 04.5 LLY was that it wasn't cooling the engine off when it got hot. Most of the big rigs have a manual fan switch, so when they begin to get hot, you can just flip a switch and it will cool it off, without that, those things would over-heat as well.I have a LMM...bone stock.

Mine regened last night, and it didnt seem to loose any power or anything.. just the spastic type of feeling on the go petal... as it does when it regens. It seems to try more frequently because it missed a complete burn prior while i was plowing, so it is trying to do some catch-up. There are lurking suspicions about the DFP and plowing. If it doesn't get in a complete burn, then it will go into limp mode. I am fearing that to happen at 2am. We'll see what happens i guess.Have you guys noticed any difference plowing when the truck goes into regen mode? Does it do it more or less when plowing?
