A Delaware truck

should have one on it from the factory. I would use it. I use mine below 40 just to aid in warming it up. I dont like to take off with a cold engine and I dont like letting it sit for ever idling.

You prolly already have one. The plug in is prolly tucked behind the front bumper. They are nice when it's cold because when you get in it's already warm. Increase your fuel milage too because it cuts down on the warm up idle time in the morning

Cord

6.0 heater cords run up the Passenger side frame rail. You can see them from the wheel well. Then like DJ said you will find it behind the bumper.

You have one - Ford only provides the cord as a standard feature in a couple of states. Here is a link to where I bought my cord the other day.
