Lowest I have started mine is -46. Coldest day of the year and they decided to plow the streets (where my truck is usually parked)... Had to move it quickly so no time to let it warm up. Three glow plug cycles and it fired up. Shook like a bastard though. Trans locked out all shifts from 1st onward, TC acted a little funny, but it moved. I wouldn't recommend doing that ^^^ too often.

-28 here in North Dakota, not plugged in, sat for 16 hours. I let the glow plugs cycle 2x and she fired right up...sounded like someone threw a box of nuts and bolts in the engine for a minute but she smoothed right out. I start anywhere between -30 and 0 on a daily basis, usually plug it in on a timer set for 4 hours before I head to work, with it plugged in it starts no problem and the glow plugs will only cycle for a few seconds.

Mine has no trouble starting up in the cold. I've seen -24 and it started fine without plugging in. Obviously not as easy as the summer but I wasn't worried for a second it wouldn't. I do try and plug it in if its available and it gets below 15 degrees or so.
5" exhaust.... And a few things kicking around waiting to be installed

Does anyone know what the truck is suppose to do - in regard to remote starting while the block heater is plugged in ? I mean , do different years behave differently , or are some trucks just not functioning properly ? ( just curious )
