93 cummins block heater?
Was wondering if there is a after market heater that someone makes for my truck? My dad when he bought this truck didn't get it with any of the cold weather accessories on it. Now with the cold weather here in Oregon its a bear to get started in the morning. Thanks Reece

Yes there are aftermarket engine block heaters . They work great . Thought about putting one on my gas engine so I have instant heat in the morning .

there is a block heater from Dodge you can put on..the thing is when you ordered the truck that only cost 10 bucks to get ti was nothing
but to get one from them now look at about a 100 bucks and if you can not put it in another couple hr's of time and at 85 bucks a hr it will cost a lot
so you can get one from a junk yard or get a aftermarket one and put it in
it is well worth the money to get one ... at even 40 deg you truck gets hard to start ..I pug mine in when it gets that cold and I live in Texas and for the last week it has been at freezing or less so it has been plugged in all the time
if you do not it is hard on the starter solenoid ..I had to replace mine with a super sized one ..will last a million mile even in cold weather
so yes they have them just check around and you may even find them on Ebay I just checked and there are a lot of them

I just installed a new engine heater in a diesel engine at work that runs a backup generator . It goes in the heater hose . Works great , easy to install, and plugs into 120 volt . Radiator and entire engine warm to the touch .

to my knolage all of the engines built from dodge after 90 came with the block heater. well every one of them iv seen. its right under the exaust manifold. it might have a black cap on top of it. go to and pick up the wire for 14 bucks.
