    I have just recently used my new Boss 8ft HD plow. The truck temp on my 05 dodge 2500 diesel raises rapidly while plowing. It goes all the way to 245 at the red line. The plow is lowered all the way down and the truck at low speeds in 4wd. Coolant levels look good and cools down while driving. Not sure what to do or check for?

    Look at the front of the condenser and then between the condenser and radiator, we see this area clogged up with junk all the time. When your plowing under load and building engine temp you cant get enough air to keep it cool.
