Red face Routing Block Heater Cord....

With all 200 threads on here I learned that the 6.0's come wih a block heater from the factory. Mine didn't have the cord so I bought one. I am now installing it and my question is how does it need to be routed and where exactly does it come out on the front of the truck. I'm sure it doesn't matter a lot but I would like it to look factory. I don't want it to interfere or get caught in anything.

Thanks for the help

it routes through the wheel well up through teh bumber assembly to the front drivers tow hook, or you could have it come out anywhere you wanted to really.
