    Is it going to harm my truck to drive for 22 hours straight? I'm guessing I'll be making periodic stops every 2-5 hours for about 15 - 30 Minutes to eat and gas up.

    Anybody ever done it? Should I bring extra fluids just incase?

    Thanks!

    I have not done it in my truck yet but I have done it with 4 other vehicles from Denver to Pittsburgh and they have all done fine. The only stops I did were gas stations for food fuel and bathroom breaks.

    That's what I figured. I've done the drive many times in other truck/cars/vans but we always stopped over night. So it was only 11 hours.

    Lucky I had about 10 red bulls haha! Nothing like having 6 down on I70 in Kansas at 4am trying to get back to Denver and having to piss on the side of the road because there is shit in Kansas.

    I did Upstate,NY direct to San Antonio, TX - 24 hrs no stops other than gas - 2 drivers. (we drove like we were on a mission - neither of us could believe the timing). I wont admit to our avg speed :D. I also did San Antonio back home in to NY, then to Little Rock, AR 3 weeks later. Trucks very comfortable on the long hauls. Bring snacks, extra cash - fill up the tank, check your tire pressures, and go for it.

    I drove my truck 24 hours straight in April on my way to Kentucky. I only stopped for gas, and a quick trip through the drive through. Never had a single problem. All the temps held nice and the fluids were all at good levels. Just be careful. Dont fall asleep. Best of luck!!

    20+ hours is nothing in comparison to what the truck could handle. Your only real limitation is going to be an oil change, fuel, or an unexpected break down.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    Your truck will be just fine, just make sure to check your oil level/radiator level before you go and each time you fuel up. Also check your tire pressure before you leave too!

    Also it may not be a good idea to go on old oil that may be close to changing time.

    ive done it in an f350 from pa to texas and back only stopping for diesel (made for a long time in between stops when you can hold 40+ gallons, it became common to piss in a bottle) and for about and hour or 2 in texas to eat and load the trailer. we were on a mission. we had 3 drivers i took a solid 2 days. but no problems. just keep an eye on all fluids and temperatures. it would be a good idea to carry extra fluids and spare parts that are common wear items. o i forgot we did blow a tire on the trailer so we stopped for a lil bit then to fix that.

    15 straight hours in my Taco last year and it was fine. Make sure your fluids are good and you'll be fine.
