Cold motor when its not too cold - grrrrrr

So my truck will not start if she doesn't have a power cord running to her when its between 0-30 degrees. I live in Alaska and this will be a very long winter if I always have to plug this pig in. I am trying to shield my words, but I am extremely angry!

I have youtube'd this issue, some say glow plug problem and others say glow plug relay.

I tested the relay and its bad (according to the directions youtube depicted) and then I realize that part wasn't $14 like I somehow thought, the Alaskan price is $75.

Again, back to angry

You can't get one shipped to you online?

Napa part number is gpr110 for our truck and very expensive.
Napa part number gp109 is exactly the same relay except the mounting braket is turned 90.
This second relay will go right in and the wires (on my truck anyway) made the stretch to connect to the proper terminal. A gpr109 is about 20 bucks. You can cross ref that number at any major auto parts chain.
