Block Heater Bumper Plug Upgrade

Thought the OEM Block Heater Plug looked pretty Cheezy on a $62k truck. I purchased one of these for my battery charger outlet for my Cobalt boat. So I decided to try and install one for the Block Heater on my new KR. Takes less than 30 minutes to install and bought the Plug on Amazon.com and was about $18. It is made by Marinco and they are designed for wet conditions so should work well and last for years. Took some photos of install. Easy Peasy, not so Cheezy!

That looks good. Is there a cover for the wires in picture #2 that isn't pulled over the exposed wiring?

Yes, here's a photo of the factory plug I pulled through the cut hole in bumper. Here is a pic from an EBay photo I found. It has a rubber sleeve that keeps it water-tight.

That's awesome, great job! I was considering something similar but wanted an auto eject like we have on our fire apparatus.
