I think I will replace the new one in the truck with this one and keep the other one as a backup. I just don't feel good about leaving the exact same cap that failed in the truck. If the old one failed at 14,000, the one in the truck may fail at 9,000.
A couple years ago y'all had a pretty big snow in May!

We were trying to go down to CO and had to postpone our trip for a few days. There were huge banks of snow along the road around Cheyenne, but the sun was shining by then.

I hate I-25 from Cheyenne south
