Welcome to the forums John!
Enjoy the forums! I see you have found the GMC/SUV section, perfect!
Do you use your Jimmy for towing anything?

Haven't towed anything yet. I'm looking to get a small boat and small utility trailer which is the reason I picked it up.

If you plan on towing with it, I suggest an external trans cooler.

I saw the towing capacity at 5600lbs, I always use synthetic oil, is there an issue overheating when towing a small trailer or boat that going to be somewhere around 3000lbs?
