I would recommend using battery blankets instead of the battery pads that go on the base of the battery... I've heard a few stories about the battery heater pads being worn through from the batteries sliding around and resulting in engine compartment fires. Definitely not a happy experience.
Battery blankets will instead wrap around the sides of the battery and can be held in place with zip ties or a similar fastener.
That's what I did on my truck for up here in Fairbanks, AK. The weather in Anchorage though is warmer than Fairbanks.
