hot to cold weather

My jeep has lived in Florida all its life but now its with me in Kentucky. Yesterday it was under an inch of snow. I was just wondering if there is anything I need to do to keep her running good in the cold climate. She definetly likes the new terrain but I want to make sure she stays in top running condition.
Thanks for any suggestions. Joe

Make sure to check the kind of oil your Jeep is running on right now. I don't know how cold it gets in Kentucky - but you should not be running 10W-40 in the Wintertime. Best get an oil change right away.

Also, make sure you be careful with the softtop - those things scratch easy as hell in freezing weather - and the windows can even crack...

Good luck,
