I maybe moving to Delta Junction in a month and I'm trying to decide if my 4x4 Dodge 6.7 diesel with 6 spd manual tranny can handel the cold. I plan on running synthetic 5-30 in the engine. I've been running Dodge diesels since 1991 here in the lower 48 and I hate the thought of going back to wimpy, gas 4x4s. (I want to be able to pull my travel trailer or 25' Custom Weld around in the summer.)
I've had no problems down to -10 here in Idaho with just an engine block heater; but with temps down to -50 is it better just to sell the diesel and go to gas? Any ideas?
