    6112/5160. Ranchhand rear bumper and Valhallas Shields.

    I've got his front Skid and front and rear shields and have noticed a little more heat in the cab while driving. The worst was one afternoon in 90*+ heat I was towing around 9000lbs going from Buffalo to Abilene and back a few days later. The floor board started to feel a little warm but there were no rise in coolant or tranny temps so I put the AC control on vent and floor. It wasn't uncomfortable by any means but I did notice it. Other than that I haven't noticed any excess temps from the shields.

    Won’t effect engine temp, but you will see a slight rise in transmission temps.
