    View the build. Too much to list.
    It's pretty normal if you have heavier fluid in the drivetrain. If you want to spend money, you can get a lighter weight transmission oil for winter and switch it in spring. Not worth it in my opinion. It will survive.

    My older manual transmission trucks were always like that when it got really cold. I usually just pumped the clutch a few times when I got in and within a couple miles it loosened up.
