I believe all 6.0 come with the block heater, but not all come with the plug

The plug( to the motor) gets plug in by your cross member and runs along the passenger side. Check for the plug(for your house) by the oil cooler.

All of them have the heater but not all have the plug. Look in the passenger front fender well and you should see black wire loom clipped to the frame rail. If you don't see it then you don't have the plug.

It is in the passenger side front tow hook area, has a rubber cap that covers the prongs... you may have to search for it but it is tucked up in there...
