My truck(see sig) seems to run and shift 10x as good with the warmer it gets i.e. a 1 hour trip really brings my truck alive!!! As compared to when i first take off... Does this make sense to you guys???

Of course it will. Would you want to sprint 100 yards without warming up? Hell no. Same thing applies to cars and trucks. Warm em up, then run em hard. And these trucks don't heat up in 15 mins either... Unless the laws of physics are different for your truck. 4 gallons of oil, 8 gallons of oil, 16+ quarts of transmission fluid, etc, take a long time to heat up.

When the trans fluid is cold it is thicker than it is when warm, therefore not flowing as well.
