Thumbs up how to prepare 1994 mustang gt for a heavy winter/advice on a question on v8's

I have pictures of the car in my profile
Miles on the car are unknown because the odometer does not work all the other gauges work
Manual transmission*Planning on Replacing the
Clutch-stock
Shocks and struts-stock maybe,thinking about buying descent aftermarket ones
Putting wider tires+rims
And what kind of oil should i put before i go?I use 5w-30
And i plan on buying a chemical to put on the windshield to prevent it from ice build up
Is there anything else i should replace/put on the car
What i listed are the only things that are worn out
I plan on going on December but i want to start buying the parts slowly, its my first time taking the car on a long trip and my first time going to Colorado where it snows.
Im going from Texas and its about a 16 hour drive, about 1,000 miles


Another thing, if i drive for example to another city about a 40 minute drive in the highway
The car begins to heat up, for example everything inside the hood heats up even like the batterys cables, the stick shift also heats up if i feel the metal itself, and if i open the little sliding door in the middle console i could feel the heat
Is that normal on those cars???
Im new with mustangs and v8 lol
I went from a 94 Nissan sentra 1.6L v4 to a 94 mustang gt 5.0 v8
Its a big difference
I changed the
Radiator
Water pump
Thermostat to a 185 i believe
i have a fan switch to turn on the high speed on the fan
The temperature gauge does not work correctly
it will start to rise and if i accelerate it will drop I've heard those gauges suck lol
there's never steam coming out of the car or anything
my mods are listed in my signature
any advice will help
