I guess I had forgotten that you had the factory exhaust brake. That's a good deal. The exhaust brake is one thing I regretted not having on my 2006.Cummins performed incredibly well. Very very pleased with the temperatures, exhaust brake, control and how well it stayed in the power band (1600-2100) all trip and 2100 was rare!
Same. If I was on a climb and it went from 5-4 or 6-5 it would kiss that rangeI guess I had forgotten that you had the factory exhaust brake. That's a good deal. The exhaust brake is one thing I regretted not having on my 2006.
Today you came off the mountain, so I assume the 2100 RPMs you saw was on the hills on I-25? Do you remember what RPMs you saw when you were going up the mountain to Ruidoso?
Gotcha. You had some good hills on most of that trip. Even the drive from San Antonio to Carrizozo had some long steep grades. I posted this picture last July when we went through that part of the country. It was 104*F near Tularosa.Same. If I was on a climb and it went from 5-4 or 6-5 it would kiss that range
I wish. Keep hearing thunder, and see the occasional lightning around us, but only a few thousands of rain here so far.Jimmy, I hope you're getting some of this rain. This is our fourth day in a row of monsoon like weather.

There's almost no snow left in the hills that I can see, so the river is down quite a bit already.
It's also stupid hot. This may become a grim summer.
This is what Kirk told me, "Your truck is now in KZP, which means it is built but is getting all the badging and emblems put on!"Hmm. KZ anything (never heard of KZP) should mean that it's done and invoiced.
All three and four letter codes I've seen, starting with KZ, has to do with shipping.
I'll hit up Kirk in a week and see what the status is. Based on what he said about badging, I'm wondering if the truck is coming out of stage 4 and into stage 5. Maybe by next week, it will be shipped.Even if it went to an upfitter (which it won't since that happens on the assembly line), to get the badging installed, it wouldn't be a KZ yet.
I'm not going to get too hopeful. Kirk seems to believe it will ship very soon. I sent him an email this morning asking if we could start the paperwork. If possible, I would like to secure the 0% interest and no payments for 90 days.And don't plan your vacation around the projected shipping date. Remember that after getting to KZ, it took four months and eight days for a car of ours to make it to the dealer.
Once it finally got on a train it went fairly quickly, though.
