Winterizing YJ for sub-zero temperatures

*Please note I'm re-posting this to gain a local's opinion not to spam the boards.*

I have a '91 YJ. Over the holidays I planned to travel to the Adirondacks from Washington, DC so in preparation I put 1/4 inch round weather seals around the door and window sills. I tucked 1/2 inch foam seals along the length of the doors (between the half-door and door upper) and in the space where the the windshield frame and softtop connect. The last thing I did was to rig 1 inch climbers webbing in a net fashion between the sports bars and tuck a nice heavy blanket between the softtop and the webbing. This reduced the drafts and noise by at least 98%!

Now the the point of the thread. I'm in the prelim stages of planning a trip to Alaska and had a few questions about winterizing.

Here's what I know of right now.

1. Hardtop/doors
2. Block heater
3. Oil change to 5W-30(20)
4. Sub-zero washer fluid


Can you guys who live in CND suggest anything else to do to prepare the YJ for real cold climate?

Thanks! G
