New member?

Hey guys, I made a post in the 6L forum about my family and I coming to Alaska at the end of the year, beginning of next. We're going to be stationed at Eielson AFB in Fairbanks.

Any suggestions for a Diesel owner in the cold weather?

Well you're timing couldn't be more perfect. It'll probably be about 30 below. I would get a freeze plug heater, a Katz pad for the oil pan and a blanket for the battery

Cool. Got a website I can find this stuff at? Also, my official orders came down today too. I'll be up there in April now, not December as originally thought.

Ahh April is so much better than Dec-Jan, temp wise. The bad part is that you will get to drive up during break up. Can be ugly depending on what is going on that day. I personally dont have a web site for all of the items that we mentioned in the other thread. I just usually go to NAPA or one of the other stores. One thing you will find out by being up here is that the Shipping/Handling can cost as much our more than the item you are buying.
