If you have one, the cord will probably be zip tied and down low towards the front passenger side of the engine.

You might even have to crawl underneath the truck to find it if you have one.

Mine was tucked right in under the front bumper on the passenger side, ziptied to the cross member

Talked to my brother too, his '05 is mounted right inside the grille on the driver side.

Mine is on the passenger side near the grille. Zip tied as well. Looks like its never been used. First winter with this truck as well. Good luck ,if you have one you should be able to find it.

Here's a dumb question. If I want to find out if my truck has one of these, what exactly will I look for? Just a standard plug in style plug? I really doubt my '06 4.7 SLT has one, but I sure would be curious to find out! Thanks!

Default Block heater question

Where do they tuck the cord for the block heater? Also what side of the Hemi is the block heater installed? I cant find a cord or a heater. Just want to make sure I'm not overlooking something. Thanks for the help

My block heater cord is on the passengers side front zip tied near the grille. My truck is a 2003. I believe all of them are on the passengers side. Hope this helps. Let us know how you make out.
