    mounted my MMII last night, (2nd time), on my 05 gmc 2500hd, and drove home. i had the blade angled left and as low to the pavement that i was comfortable with. the tem gauge was stable at about 210, where it usually pegs out at, but the trans cooler ( i think) gauge, bottom left of inst cluster rose to about 150+. is this normal? at what temp to i ***** my pants? and, what should i do to lower the temp if it is abnormally too high?

    I have a 1993 Chevy with a B & M Temp Gauge. If I remember right it runs between 150 & 180 all the time with the plow on! I would personally not be too concerned, however check the cooler size or maybe mounting a forced air fan on the cooler could help cool it down some!

    As long as it doesn`t continue past 180. You`re still fine. Just try re-positioning the angle while moving, should work.
