You have a block heater. It's above the starter. You might not have a cord. In 05 and newer they shipped trucks to areas that need block heaters with the cord on it. Areas that don't didn't and was an option.

Here is a link to where the cord starts at the heater, then routes to the front near the passenger side tow hook. If you have one it is zipped tied high and tight behind the bumper. They are hard to see in there. If not, you can find them on e-bay.

Your Premiere Source for Ford Truck Parts and Accessories

You just need the $15 cord and some zip ties.

I'm thinking about doing this... I've been nervous that I wouldn't be able to get the cable routed but WTF I think I will give it a go.

Has anyone installed this?

I've seen someone do something like that, but can't locate it now. If you do this, shows us where you mounted it, please.

That is what I was hoping to see. Hopefully someone comes along and has a pic.

Been thinking of getting one of these to go along with the block heater. Can't see how it can hurt anything!!! If anything I think it would help... NO?

Be chance you know the part number? And a ordinary electrical cord will fit in the end of the Marinco? For outdoor use of course.

Cool idea, hated the way that looks hanging out the front of my truck... off to spend more money at lunch.
