I got the state inspection done on my 20 year old big block dually last Saturday. Today, I changed the oil in the rearend for the first time since I've owned the truck. I put full synthetic in there.

Done the 60k transmission service, a bit early at 55k. Was glad to see the pan and magnet clean after 55k. Put in Mopar filters and Mopar synthetic ATF+4, same as factory fill.

Worked it hard yesterday. Pulled my TT from Quartzsite, AZ to Moab, UT, about 550 miles of up and down, mostly up. From 800' elevation, up and down a few times to 8000' elevation, then back down to 4000' elevation here at Moab. It was a 13 hour trip, including a half dozen rest stops.

Oil and transmission temps got much higher than normal, but still within acceptable limits. The highest tran temp I saw was around 190 degrees, oil around 230.

Truck pulled like a champ, although I let it slow down on the big rises, to keep the RPMs maxed at around 3000 RPM. Cruising RPMs hovered around 2200-2400.

Averaged 10.4 MPG for entire trip. Love my HEMI!

Finally got around to putting a shorter radio antenna mast on. No more hitting the garage door going in and out!

Signal reception may be slightly degraded as the new mast is 10" shorter. I tested it out, and received all my normal stations pretty well. I rarely use the FM anyway since I got a year of XM when I bought my truck. It spoiled me, and so I will renew in May when my trial is up.

Only question is whether the new mast will whistle. The OEM mast had a coil going up it for aerodynamics to reduce wind noise. The new one is straight ... We will see...

Installed my 2nd Bak-flip VP cover on the truck since the first one leaked and researched new tires for it. Looking at Michelin Defender LTX M/S in a LT265/60R20 size....... $196 ea.

Made a ramp (2' wide x 7' long) using 1/4" thick plywood clamped to a folded 6' ladder resting on my truck's bumper. Now DW and I can roll our new Champion 3100 generator in and out of the truck bed.

Changed out the wires and plugs, thank goodness for a young strong son to help me with the two plugs at the back of the engine!
