Default Oil Pan Heater Question

I've relocated from Las Vegas to Reno and since my truck sits outside, (the Challengers get the garage) I figure I'll need an oil pan heater. I can do the install but would like a recommendation on a good quality one that has some longevity. Also an idea where to run the power cord would be helpful. Any value to also leaving a good quality metal shop light with a 150 bulb in it under the hood in conjunction with the oil pan heater install.? What does everyone do with the early morning start ups in cold country. My house is at a 5,100 elevation so it will be cold.

I live in Pittsburgh and our winter temperature is 10-30 deg. on a normal day. Never needed to use any additional heaters or light bulb heaters.

Remote start is a plus for a warm up.

I don't think it is worth your hard earned money. I live in Laramie, Wy and it easily hits -20 and -30 in the middle of winter. I only plug my block heater in when it gets under -20. I have had no problems with my truck or oil.
I'd save my money for another mod if I were you. Just my 2 cents
