Winterizing Tips From Fleet Owner

It's may not be officially winter yet, but I'm sure you can feel the change in temps when you go outside. Here in Minnesota, we're in full "Winter-Mode" now that we have freezing temps along with snow and sometimes even icy roadways. So we thought why not take the bull by the horns and start helping the truck driving community with winterizing trucks. We found a great article from Fleet Owner that tackles this topic prefectly.

These tips don't just go into how to winterize your truck, but also how to be prepared for driving in winter weather.
