That will be one slow ride.
Don't keep pushing hard when the accelerator petal is all the way down or you'll damage the connective tissue in your right foot like I did.
Also be careful pulling out on the highway because a car 5 miles back could run into the back of your 110.
Best of luck.

Any input regarding fuel additives? Currently not doing anything but am curious if that would be beneficial.

I use the one from Lucasoil and it seems to smooth the engine out a bit. I wouldn't expect massive performance gains tho... . This is an awesome trip, love to see that some are still willing to take on a cross country trip in an unproven rover!

You could always add a quart of the old style red ATF.

Henery - we are actively debating taking 90 through SD or 12 through ND. How flat is 12? Inclines are proving to be problematic. Thanks

Ummm...I hope you dont hit any rainstorms...your snorkle has no top on it.

You will suck rainwater right into the air filter.

Have a safe trip.

Yeah. I'd recommend stopping at a tractor supply and seeing if they have anything if there is any rain your way.

I have used optilube xpd. I like it. Haven't tried others but I've been using it for like 3 or 4 years now and like it. I don't know where you can buy it in person, though.

Thanks Nomar.

Yes - had the top off for a while during a dry stretch to see if less constriction helped the with power. Very unscientific and the outcome is "meh".

New truck-lite headlights (27270C) are fantastic. Very pleased and the high-beams are exceptional.
(The shadow close to the truck is a rock guard.)

Great looking truck! Keep the pics coming.

Maybe you'll feel like bringing it down from Seattle for the ABFM in Portland?

Thanks... I haven't shared any of the rust pics or when the footwells fill with water. I'm still pleased even with the areas to improve.

What are the dates for ABFM? Link?

x2 on the ATF it seems like it just quiets everything down. What a cool trip! Keep the pics and updates coming.

Found and remember 12 being "ideal" for what your doing, 90 with the slower speed is considered and known to be flat out deadly,lol (really)
12 had everything from fuel stops to camping.

Only issue came thru higher elevations with the power loss, didn't take much either,
Lola pass was the only skid mark in the britches situation, near top fan belt slipped a lil screatchig, drive down west side was beautiful,

Because of the lower speeds it wasn't a bad choice & would do it again in a heartbeat
