Re: Newest new guy!!!
In cold weather, here in NW PA, I put the transfer in neutral and the tranny in gear when I start it to warm everything up.
Of course, I have a JK w/ 6sp, but it should work w/auto too.
Hook up w/the guys up there, I have some buddies that were stationed there and from my understanding, there is info available for the new guys. (talk to your new NCO)
