It took a while to get it started at -10F but once it started it didn't run too bad. Getting it to move though is a whole other story.

My guess (as is yours) is you have water in the rear end. These H's and M's are notorious for getting water into the rear end via the top cover bolts. A STRONG word of caution - they are also notorious for busting the bottoms of the transmission casing under the bull gears when there is ice in the rear end and you try to move it.. Happened to my grandfather's, and has happened to countless others. Best bet is to put a tarp over the rear end during the rainy season to prevent water from getting to it. You may be able to thaw it using heavy tarp and blankets and a torpedo heater (obviously keep an eye on it as there is a potential for a fire).

Just bought a jeep that had been sitting outside a while and when I brought it home about a month later it was freezing cold as it is now and went to go move it and found that the shifter was stuck in-between gears after a further inspection the whole transmission was frozen solid so after a hour or two with the torpedo heater and a heat gun and screw driven I got it broken up and drained
