    I was just thinking about what I need to do to the K5 and the wife's car to since winter's finally showing up... We're supposed to get our first snow tonight, yahoo!!

    So today I'm thinking I need to give 'em a good scrubbing, rain-x the glass and double coat of wax on the body to make the snow and ice slide off quicker (old trick I used in my dodge days that I forgot about). I wonder if now might be a good time to pull the clutch fan and use the electric supplemental pusher as the primary fan (the truck is running ice cold all the time since I cleaned out the rad fins and the cooler weather is in)...

    Sooooooo, what's everybody's custom winterizing techniques/tips?

    I try to wash the rust at least once a season (you might want to do this more often if you still have paint). Really though wash her often(underneith too) to keep the salt demons at bay

    I just removed the summer air from my tires and put in some of that new winter air from Canada. They say it stands up to the cold better.

    I'm not late im on Central Standard Time
