Be carful if it is under 40 degs the tire have no traction you slide like you are on ice at least I do. Drive safe and enjoy the ride

We'll crap, looks like it will be in the 40 degree range all the way home that day, dipping below 40 after dark. Is it that bad that I should get a room half way, or should I be ok if I just drive like most grandpas do?

I'd play it safe and look for a hotel in a decent area when the temp starts going below 40

Great to hear you made it safe. Did it get above 40? How do you like her now:

This car is a Monster. Still need to get used to the handling. Not sure if its the staggered wheels and tires, or not having the strut tower brace, but wow...
Temps Stayed above 40 all the way to Ok city. then was up and down the last 200 miles between 33 and 47. I just babied her all the way home.
3.3 miles on the clock when I picker her up, now over 1,000. Time to get her cleaned up and go pick up her plates. I ordered this plate for the 5.0 before I decided to sell it.

3.31 is best for top speed is what i read this to be- maybe i am reading it incorrectly

Most 2013 come with 3.331 not 3.73 - i havent seen 1 with 3.73 yet but i have seen some super snakes using 3.73 not 3.31 and i have not seen a 14 with 3.73 yet either
I just looked at the sheet that has total numbers of cars built and all the options that where available. The only ratio was 3.31 for the 2013 model year I am not sure of the 2014 MY but I bet it is the same.

If you look at the attached on the left you will see the options offered.
