I would not recomend running a 2wd in heavy snow but if you are going to anyway I would say put enough weight to level the truck out. You usually see that the rear of most pickups are slightly to moderatly higher than the front. So level it and you should invest in some chains if you haven't already. They make a huge differance.

What grade oil does 2004 jeep grand cherokee special edition take


Most likely 5W-30. The W is for winter. The numbers tell summer and winter. A quart of this oil will act like 5 weight (very thin) in the winter and 30 weight in the summer (thicker). Let's not go in to how that is done.
If you live up north, a 5W-20 would do well also. Down south 10W-30 is often used.

What motor oil weight should I be using on my 96 olds 88....we live where the winter temps can go as low as -10 F and as hot as 95F in the summer


5w 30 or 10w 30 during the winter. After an oil change... check your oil after 200-300 miles of use. Is the level the same? If so your weight is fine. If it drops, it's to light of an oil and your engine is now "drinking it" like fuel, move to a heavier weight. As far as Changing between winter and summer. Changing Oil weights is not bad for your motor so if the winter you go with 5w 30 and it works, great, shoot for the same during the summer. If it seems to "drink it" during the summer using this weight, go up to the next (10w 30)

That being said. Changing from natural oil, to synthetic, back to naturual , or vice versa... swapping back and forth between these KINDS of oil has been known to cause damage. so whatever weight you decide on, stick with one "type", natural or synthetic.

What type of oil do I need for winter?


Use the manufacturer's recommended weight. Unless you're in an extremely cold area there is no reason to use a lighter weight than is recommended.

Oil weight


Do whatever the owner's manual says. Full synthetic is better than a blend, it's all a matter of how much you want to pay.

Need assistance ,restoring a bed 0n a 1954 1/2 ton chevy


faxonautoliterature lists a build manual for your truck for $30. I bought one for my 82 Chevy and it is a copyof the instructions for each station on the assembly line. Could be exactly what you are looking for. They also have the dealer service manual for under $50. Hope this helps.

Oil Change


Drain engine oil and replace oil filter(your local automotive store will have a book telling you what oil filter you need to buy). You've probably been using a multi-grade 10-30 or 10-40 weight oil. Or a straight 30 weight oil. Regardless, replace that oil with one grade heavier, single-weight of oil. During warm months, use 40 weight; in the winter (depending on how far the mercury dips in your part of the country) use 20 or 30 weight. Slightly thicker oil won't hurt that worn engine, and if your battery is good, it'll turn over fast.
