Okay, relocating to Kodiak, Alaska sometime this month - pretty much weather dependent, on no real time-frame at the moment.
Keep in mind that I am in the absolute first stages in planning this trip right now.
Planning on taking the Alcan, then taking the Port Lions Ferry to Kodiak. At this point in time, I don't envision towing a trailer. Cap will be on the truck, and bed will be loaded with all of my essential possessions. Selling most of my furniture, before I leave, not worth the hassle of trying to transport it such a great distance.
Truck has four new BFG A/Ts on it, with a new OME Suspension Lift. Front brake rotors/pads were recently replaced as well as oil. Overall, truck is in great condition for the drive. 55W HID retro, so night time lighting will not be an issue - although I don't plan on driving at night. Will be traveling with a full size NEW spare as well as tools, fluids, etc.
Should I think about installing a block heater, as well as purchasing a battery blanket as well?
Fabricating a radiator/grille shroud that's removable to maximize heater output?
Changing anti-freeze w/lower freeze point and higher concentration?
