OK well lets see where do I start, I guess from the beginning. well I'm moving to Laramie, WY for school @ WyoTech so I need some help what all do I need to do to winterize my car, So far I got a Engine Block Heater and I guess I'll need to change the radiator fluid since it's a 50/50 mix "we're from northern California" so what else do I need to do any help would be great thanks:thanks::icon_rolleyes:

50/50 antifreeze gives maximum freeze protection.
Winter wiper blades are highly recommended.
The 5w 20 oil that is specified for your Challenger is good. A 0w is better, as is synthetic.
Wax or silicone on the lower portion of the windows prevents ice from keeping the window from dropping.
Dedicated winter tires are much better than any all season tire. The Blizzak with "tube multi cell technology" are the best on ice.

Didn't know 50/50 antifreeze was better and I always use synthetic oil so far so good and when I get there was planning on getting some snow tires any ways and the glass thing would not've even thought of that , Thanks for the help.

Im from Cheyenne, Wyoming, If you are going to school, get a beater 4x4. Drive the Challenger in the summer. Good luck in school, I checked out Wyotech back in the day and was impressed, but went a different out.
