How to tell if you have Rapid Heat option?

Is there a way to tell by looking somewhere under the hood if your truck has the "Rapid Heat" option? I looked up the original window sticker and didn't see the option on there, but the last line on the optional equipment side said "other optional equipment $980" so just trying to figure out what the other stuff is.

"Rapid Heat" is a option where they install a electric heat device to provide heat in the cab when the engine is cold in the winter. Some else might be able to describe it a little better but what ever it is it sure would be nice to have in the Minnesota winters.

Not true. You had to order it. The dealer ship got me in touch with the original owner of my truck and when I talked to him he said he didn't order that option but wished he had.

My window sticker specifically said PTC Supplemental Heater in addition to $900 in a category marked Other Optional Equipment.

You have it then, it doesn't get 90 degrees but it gets warmer than outside by like 20 or 30 degrees, it's not a magic heat my truck to 90 degrees instantly
