Block heater PLUG???????

I have a 2005 f250 that doesn't have a plug in the front bumper for a block heater do you know if I can install one so it can start smoother? I heard that "ford" already installs the heater just doesnt have a plug so u have to just by the plug & hook it up to the block heater which is supose to be right above the starter but I havent looked yet. Do you know how I can install the heater block or what I have to do to get it installed? Or if its even possible to intall?

Yes, you should be able to put a plug on your truck and yes it should already have the block heater installed . Try the search function on here and you should find some other threads about the topic that will steer you in the direction you need to go. There are people asking the same question every year so there should be some good info out there. Good luck.

I have a 06 F-350 and the heater is just above the starter on the passenger side, All you have to do is buy the cord and install it, it's very simple. You just plug the cord into it's socket, tighten the lock nut and route the cord up to the bumper.Takes about 10 minutes. You can get the cord from your dealer or I got mine off ebay for about $20.00. I allso got a heavy duty timer off of ebay.
