They should have them in stock at any dealership, mine has several. They are around $35.00 to buy but a real nightmare to install (so I have heard)

My truck was not ordered with one but it came already installed. I was able to see it under the truck on the pass side rear of the motor and follow the cord up to behind the pass side tow loop.

hey guys, don't waste your time/money going the bleeping dealer. go to your local computer shop and just buy the power cord for a computer, it's the same one.

my block heater cord got messed up years ago and i just used a computer power cord. ended up working just fine.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo
