the cold is he!! on batteries. i have been fortunate that i have an 04 and still have my factory batteries. i would plug it in plus charge the batteries. i believe you need a strong 12V to start the truck. i could be wrong but that seems right to me. so charge the batteries, then having it somewhat warmed from the blockheater will ease the starting for you. let us know!
