    Is the 2015 cooler 4 pronged or 2 pronged?

    Do yours look like this?

    Looks just like the 2015's onward. Change your CVT fluid, replace the cartridge filter. If you were really worried (and you are lol ) then your options are adding a additional cooler in between the radiator and the CVT or replacing your engine thermostat with a cooler temp one (if they are available). This will decrease your CVT temps due to cooler water temps. Decreasing fluid temps in CVT's or automatics can dramatically increase their longevity. You need enough heat for optimal operational temps but excessive heat is a killer for any CVT or automatic.

    Ugh I can't see either the bear or the tanker attachments. That would be something interesting to see even if they were sideways.

    Fixed it. Happened minutes before I got there. The truck that lost it was parked up the road a little ways. Coulda been pretty ugly!

    I thought you said the bears are smart and avoid the highways lol. Was that a black bear? We got those down here in Elvisland. You have killer brown bears in Alberta, dont you? And Grey Wolves?

    Yeah it's a black bear. I've never seen a bear road pizza before. This is the second time I've seen one on that stretch of highway. It ran away after a minute. Haven't seen a brown bear out here. Just black and grizzly. There's wolves, cougars and all sorts of things to eat you out there.

    Should have some gators though.
