2005 Excursion where is the plug in heater?

Hey, I have a 2005 Excursion, 4x4 Eddie Bauer with a 6.0 liter diesel. On the 7.3 liter diesel trucks I own there is a plug in heater to keep the oil/water warm overnight. I cannot find one on this Excursion. Does anyone know if they put them on the Excursions or not? Or am I not looking in the right place? Thanks, Jason

You might have the heater but not the wiring harness. I know my 6.4 came with the heater but the plug and harness is an option.

Thanks. Where does the harness hook up? I know the older 7.3 has it above the oil filter housing, but the 6.0 has the oil filter on top of engine. I have looked in the bumper, grill, all over the front end and cannot find the plug. I just don't know where it runs into the engine. Top? Bottom? Thanks, Jason

If you cant find it, you will have to get a wiring harness for it. Most trucks didn't come with them depending on where they were being shipped to.

The block heater is located on the right hand side towards the back of the block just above and behind the starter.

Cool

On my 04 the plug was hard to find, but I finally located it on the passenger side behind the bumper. Lay down and look up into the area around the pull hook. It's hard to see because it has a cover over the prongs.
