I have an 05 LLY that I bought in really good condition. I wasn’t specifically looking for one but needed something to tow my fifth wheel camper. One owner mediculously maintained no rust ALL ORIGINAL unmolested excellent shape. This truck has 256k mi. I’ve never driven anything like this with that many miles but you’d swear it had 60k mi. So my question is this:
I’m aware of the overheating that can occur while towing heavy. I’ve taken a couple 6 hr trips towing my 5th wheel camper. It weighs about 14-14,500k lbs loaded. I’ve towed up inclines long enough to warrant a downshift and hold through the remainder of the hill on an 85 degree day. No issues thus far. My trips are summer, some hills, mostly within 6 hrs of home once per month but we are planning an 1800 mi trip out west this September. Do I hack into this one owner all original zero issue truck for preventative overheating reasons or not? Just want to make an educated decision given that it’s such a nice truck and seemingly fine to me. Thanks for any info/opinions!
