TD52 is on a distinguished road

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
