Any advise on adding a block heater?

I have a 2006 6.0.
I've read that to add a block heater to a truck that doesn't have one is not a desirable job.
Is there an alternative?
I have a florida truck that I bought and moved to Michigan.
Already has very hard/no starts.

You may just need the cord, block heaters were not an option

Doesn't that entail removing a freeze plug. Which I read is a huge deal.

You need to drain the system and pull the plug, insert block heater, refill cooling system. Done!
