I'm there every 2 weeks 12 months a year. In Anchorage there some reliable shops that can install the block heater and blankets. You will probably be better getting them there rather than in the lower 48 states as they deal with them on a regular basis. The fuel there is treated with anti-gel in the colder weather and is usually good to -40F or -40C (they are the same at that temperature) Narrow tires cut thru the snow better than wide tires which tend to sit on top of the snow with limited traction so most folks up there have 2 sets of wheels and tires. Another item you will need is a winter front which is a cover for your grill, without this you will never get your engine to warm up in the minus weather.
