New 110 cross-country break-in trip

Leaving Baltimore Friday in my new 110 (fresh off the boat from South Africa) and heading west until I get home in Seattle. Fingers crossed AAA won't be used more than a couple times.

Full fluid change (engine, trans, t-case, diffs, swivels) before leaving town and hopefully I can rectify any issues there rather than on the side of I-90.

Fingers crossed for a smooth trip. Stay tuned....

Thanks Drew. I hope I don't need to take you up on that but it's much appreciated.

X2 post up as often as possible (we really don't care as long as the truck is in the pic) and keep us updated on your progress. Plenty of great Rover people along the way. Safe travels!

I used highway 12 when I ran out there,
2.5na did really good on that run and traffic wasn't an issue either,
Have fun !!!

sadly time is of the essence, so after picking up a co-pilot in Cleveland, it will be I-90 until Seattle.

2.5TD, not sure if that is any better than a N/A, but that's part of the adventure.

Step 1 complete. Fetched the truck form the port in Baltimore and drove to cleverly.

Swapped in truck-lites and
getting fluids done now.

Heading to Cleveland tonight.

So far so good. More pics to come

Update
Day 1 complete.
Approx 500miles. 8.5hrs driving Averaged 51mph due to beltway traffic, otherwise was in the 60-63 zone.
Truck is running warm but otherwise okay. Power improved as the ambient air temp dropped below 90. I suspect the turbo isn't performing as designed. Making a checklist of changes / mods as I go....

Co-pilot joins in the AM for the journey from Cleveland to Seattle.

Nice sunset over Pennsylvania

I'm sure the turbo is okay. I think the 19j top cruising speed somewhere in the 60s.
Good looking truck! Hope its a great trip!
