Yes, your truck has one even if the cord isn't installed. If you have the cord, it plugs into right above the oil filter. If you don't have a cord, it's $50 at the dealer.

Yes, theres a socket above your starter but you need the cord that plugs into it. Look on ebay you can get them for about $20.

It's above the oil filter, not the starter...

Usually the cord is tucked in the bumper on the driver side reach in where your tow hook is and feel around. And ya it's above the oil filter tword the front of the truck usually red in color.
