I have never ran chains and have lived here all my life, buy the mopar winter front and put some additive in your fuel find the block heater cord. These pickups start good but they warm up alot quicker when plugged in and are easier on the motor. Some sand bags help in the box if ya don't have any weight in the box.

Dont forget a winter survival kit of some sort. Blanket, candles, flashlights, snack food, flares, etc... For the storms that blow up out of nowhere when your on the job site, or if you happen to hit the ditch during a storm you can wait it out safely.

Very true. ya might even add a extra fuel filter and the tools to change it and some sort of antigell additive. ya never know about the fuel? Good luck? Just use some common sense and try not to be in a hurry the traffic here.

X2! I almost forgot the extra fuel filter. Also a jug of 911, the red jug, not the white. I use the white when I fill and keep a jug of red incase of a gell up. Knock on wood I havent had to open the red jug yet.

Thats the same for me, except this year I bought a S10 P/U to run to work and feed with, its way cheaper to run until I need a four by four.

Are you adding the white jug already? Never have had to add anything to my fuel The pump that I fueled up on today in Stanley said it was treated, but how good I don't know

Sorry its taken a awhile the site won't let me on, but yes I add every other tank until I see it is going to be -0 for a while and depending on how cold I might even put in a few gallons of #1 fuel but I only do that when its going to be -20 and colder for awhile thats not wind chill since wind chill isn't that big of factor for the pickup.

you really dont need to be adding any number one until it is below zero. but me being the guy that i am and the money that the oil boom pays i put some blended fuel in. for the extra 5 dollars a fillup and for the piece of mind i feel it is worth it. as for a treatment i swear by howes fuel treatment and in case of a gel up diesel 911(the red), chains arent really necessary up here as long as you have a good set of rubber on your pickup. my open country mts are good on and in everything except the ice so if you got them, know your limits. dont be that @$$hole to be the one sliding out in front of everyone and putting them in the ditch.

oh i always carry a rubbermaid tote around too with "my winter essentials"-->a small toolbox with basic hand tools, extra fuel filters (i dont know why but my fass pump has a habit of gelling filters up), a 35' tow rope, log chain, some clevices, jumper cables, PS diesel 911, and a good old fashion aluminum grain shovel<--best thing to have. and inside its good to carry blanket, warm boots/extra clothes, lighter/matches. idoubt youll ever get stranded up here because youll always have that one guy thatll go out in any weather to get where he is going and people up here are good people so they will most definately stop and give you a hand

Thanks pj... I have open country mt's as well but I'd like to get some chains for my truck just for the amount of driving I'm gonna be doing. Where is the best place to order some for 35 inch by 1250 tires.

I really appreciate all of the information from you guys because I'll be driving and covering all of montana wyoming north dakota south dakota, so I want to be prepared for everything.

What do you spray underneath your truck to aiden of corrosive stuff that they put on roads, also do you all use the 3M paint Protection film on rocker panels?

I have to buy the engine block heater cable, but genos garage also has a fuel filter heater kit available, is that necessary?

Thanks again

i ordered my chains off of fleabay pretty reasonable price for the amount i use them i think 49.99. you dont have to worry about the road "salts" in nd. nd uses a non corrosive chemical for a deicer. i dont think the fuel heater is necessary as the stock fuel filter is in a pretty good location and the warm block should keep your filter housing warm. as for the rocker panels??????????????i have bedliner on my rockers so it probably wouldnt be a bad idea.....The best way to be prepared is just dont put yourself in a bad situation
