block heater plug???

Ok yall its 28 outside and im pretty sure it will be better on my motor to plug it in. Well went to look for the plug and its no where to be found. Do these 0trucks not come with a block heater? its a 05 F350. If it doesnt have one what will it cost me to put one in? Thanks for the help

I've read that the cord, if installed, is above the starter. I've also read that some 6.0Ls didn't come with the cord. The heater is there, but the cord wasn't installed unless the truck's sale destination was going to be in a cold winter climate.

I had to look twice for mine by the pass. tow hook. But as was said above you might not have one.

Here is a link with where the cord runs from the starter:

Also, if you don't have one, check ebay for a cord. Ford is pretty spendy.

It will be plugged into your block above the starter and run out your pass tow hook. In 05 The cord became and option. When i bought my truck it didn't have one. Cold starts last winter were crappy so i installed one a couple months ago for this winter. Got it for $20 on ebay. Installed in 20 mins

I was going to make the statement that the cold wx trucks getting the plugs didn't make sense. Reason being is my truck was sold in Miami, FL.

Then it was stated that in 05 they became a option. My 03 came with it and I'm pretty sure, after cleaning all of the corrosion, the I am the first to use it ever. And no problems either. Makes these trucks start up easily. I only plug in at work as I don't have to pay the power bill. lol.
