sounds like he is getting a new truck so he will be ahead of the game with new batterys and etc
so i think he should be fine, when it starts getting in the negatives try to run #1 diesel, the additive pack is better for the cold,
also some keep some 911 for an emergency in the truck/ i used howes diesel treatment last winter in the big truck(with #2 diesel) and didn't have any geling problems in north Dakota
also the sythetic will help to, diesel oil turns to molasses in the cold, took me forever to add a gallon of oil last winter that i left in the side box of the trailer to add to the engine, finally had to warm it up to finish pouring it out.
as a last resort you could get a gas generator if your going to be in the middle of nowhere alot to plug the block heater in.
