Plug and Block Heater?

Does my truck have a plug and block heater? A guy told me the other day that his '06 had one from factory but I can't find one on mine.

They should all have the heater. I think 2004-2005 somewhere in there they started making the plug an optional purchase. The only way I can rationalize that decision is they wanted to save 50 cents of labor on a new build and to be able to charge $100+ after the fact to folks who didnt realize they didnt have one until they actually needed it!

If you dont have one you can get them on ebay for about $20 all day long. That's where I got mine and other than the fact that I didn't tie it up away from the exhaust manifold it worked just fine.

Lay down on the ground behind your front passenger tire and look up at the engine. At the back of the engine down at the bottom on the side, you'll see your starter. Right above the starter you'll see the block heater cord (if you have one). If you don't have the cord, you'll see the heater, which resembles a freeze plug that you can plug a cord into. Mine is an 06 and didn't have the cord. I bought one from Ford and routed it where I wanted it. If you've got one, just follow the cord until you find the end. I routed mine so that it came out near the tow hook on the passenger side. Then I just zip tied it to that.

I didnt get a cord with my truck but I did have the plug in the block. So I just go a cord on ebay for $17.
