Where's the engine block heater

I have purchased a used 2007 F-350. Do all diesels come with the engine block heaters? I've looked everywhere around the front grill.

My 07 did not come with one either, I just had my friend at the dealership put one on while they were doing some warranty stuff, I feel better now about the coming cold weather. I have never had problems with mine starting though, even down to -10 in the U.P

Look behind the tow eye on the passenger side. Mine is zip tied there and you can't see it. You have to reach behind it to feel it..

For some reason I thought all of them came with the heater, but you had to order the plug and cable as an option. Mine was also just behind the right tow hook.

Mine didn't come a cord either. Found one at Ford for $115. Then called the local International Dealer and out the door for $14.95. They are out there with a little research.
