when we installed jasper engine, they salways said dont do all stop and go, dont do all city driving, dont just set the cruise. Vary speeds and loads, thats what jasper said. I know lots of fork lifts, semis, etc etc that are put into service (beat) from day one, treachers skid steers etc, no known problems specifically because of that. I know a few guys who took their trucks and put them straight to work w/no problems, dont beat on it and it should be ok. ps how do you think comed (utility power company, gas company trucks etc get broke in?) I have seen some of those trucks w/200+ miles on them. Keep good clean fluids in it and youll be ok.
