    I did a search but didn't find anything on cold weather storage. I live in Fairbanks AK and I am gonna have to store my K5 for about a year. What do I need to do to get it ready for storage. Avg temp in winter is in the -20's but this past winter we had a few weeks of -50's. Thanks

    1. Make sure your cooling system is full

    2. Pull your battery

    3. Throw a healthy dose of fuel stabilizer in the tank

    4. Block the truck up(with or without the tires/wheels). If you leave the wheels on, make sure to cover them the plywood or something to protect them from UV rays.

    That's about it.

    Before you fire the sucker back up next year, make sure you change out the oil and tranny fluid and regrease all the fittings.

    Good luck, brother!!!
