I recently bought the truck from Texas, and was wondering what all needs to be done for the truck to run well in the Winter. I was thinking about the usual like Engine Block Heater and Battery Warmer, however when looking up the oil pan itself, it's grooved. How is anything supposed to stick to the pan to get the surface area for keeping that warm?

Lastly, are there other things out there, besides the three mentioned above, that you folks think might need to be on the truck?

Keep in mind I live in Interior Alaska, temps reach as low as -60 Fahrenheit, and I don't have a garage to keep the truck warm during the Winter months.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
