Cold Weather Preparation??

2284 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  SpiegsUT
Here my situation. Right now I live in Utah, where it's cold, but not FRIGID. I'm moving up to Jackson, Wyoming where the low last night was 8 degrees, and I will be parking outside, uncovered.

Any tips for preparation? I've got a sub-0 sleeping bag, shovel/gear, and some MRIs if I get stuck...but I'm looking more for things I can do for the truck to run well up in the cold weather.

Thanks in advance.

Make sure you've got a good 50-50 mix of anti-freeze and water in your radiator. Check your battery. I read somewhere that at those temperatures, not only does your battery deliver less juice, the engine requires more juice to start.
BTW, I sure hate this shitty January weather we're having in Utah.
Couldn't agree more. Since it's ~70 proof, it burns well also ;-)
