Glow Plugs

Ok I know its winter and a slow start is expected because of the cold. But I plug my truck in every night when its below 50 degrees because if I dont it probably wont start.

This morning it was 30 degrees, I thought the truck was plugged in but the plug fell out of the wall sometime throughout the night. Needless to say, the truck wouldnt start this morning.

How difficult are the glow plugs to replace, and where do you start with them? I have strong mechanical abilities, but Im a little lost when it comes to a Diesel Engine?

Any suggestions on a good plug to use?

Thanks in advance!

If it is the Relay, any suggestions on a brand? (Ford, Napa,.....)

I have been burned on a Napa CPS sensor and replaced it the same day with a Ford sensor, I would rather not throw money away.
