Block Heaters - Yes. I believe that up to the 6.0L, they also came with cords.

On my '01 7.3L, there is an orange cord that starts above the oil filter. Then the cord snakes forward to the bumper. I don't think your 7.3L is different. I could be wrong.

97 was the only year it was an option, I know I had one without it.

Can you leave it plugged in all the time my new truck has one and Ive need used one before.

^^ Short answer is yes you can. These thing are like 1000W though. Many people put timers on theirs so it starts heating the block about 3 hours before they will need to drive it.

My 97 didn't have one and I thought most trucks sold in the south didn't.
