I'm getting ready to move back to MT, about 1100 miles. I just picked up a horse trailer for a song and I'm going to fill it with all my gear and tow it with the 60. I towed it empty about 100 freeway miles today and it tows well, Slow but well. I crawled underneath the rig when i got home and gave the diff and transfer the old touch test to see if they were hot. The diff was just slightly warm but the transfer was a almost too hot to keep my finger on it. What is the normal operating temp of the transfer in a 60? I changed the trans/tranny oil <1000 miles ago. Both were full when I drained them and the oil was honey colored, no chips. I really would rather not cook the transfer in the middle of the oregon desert any ideas on keeping cool while towing heavy loads?
