Can't find block heater plug

I have a 2003 F-250 Lariat with a 7.3. It never starts on cold mornings, below freezing usually. I see a lot about block heaters but I can't find my plug. Do some trucks not come with block heaters? Any suggestions?

i think after a certai year is was an option . you can look right on teh oil filte rhousing and see if the cor is connected. if theer is no cord then all you have ot do is go buy a cord. but element is always there.

first off look at where the oil filter connects to the engine. To see if you even have the cord. Because that is where it plugs into on a 7.3L. Then all you have to do is follow the cord to the front of the engine. It should be located behind the front bumper on the driversside bundled up and zip tied right behind the drivers side towhook.
