It's behind the bumper to the right of the left tow hook. Tough to get your hands on unless you have small hands.

It's tough to see. They all have the heater in the block. Get under the vehicle, reach around/over the starter, and you will feel a 2 pronged receptacle. I have an 07 KR as well. It's there; you just need the cord.

Hope this link will help. Mine didn't come with a cord, but did the element. Mine is a 2007 fx4 ccsb. Bought a cord for $35.00 at dealer.

Shoot, I called the dealer here in San Antonio, and they want $74.93 + $6.09 tax+ 15% freight for special order here which would be $11.25. Grand total $92.27. It's part # 5C3Z6B019A. Don't tell me NAPA has it. I've called them. They have entire heater element and cords, yes, for about $35. I just would need to see if one of the cords worked with our element in the block.

I went to the dealer I bought my truck from and got the part for $35.00. I did call to other dealers and there prices were 65.00 to 81.00 All I needed was the cord and thats all that come in the bag. Already have element. Maybe depends on what dealer you call, maybe could find a better price.

You should have a heater, but maybe not a cord. Don't let the dealer rip you off on the cord. NAPA auto parts has them pretty cheap and they can also be found on ebay for a reasonable price much less than $100.
