7.3l Block heater

Does anyone have pictures of where the block heater plug on a 99 7.3 would be at? I killed my batteries trying to crank the truck for my first time in cold weather...so im researching alot trying to avoid this mistake tomorrow.

I plug mine in all night. But that is because I never know when I may get called into work. But you do need it plugged in for a minimum of 3 hours for it to work.
