Default What is this plug for?

I got my front grill cover yesterday, so I went to put it on and found this plug under the cover next to the radiator on the passenger side. I'm thinking it's the engine block heater, but that option was not listed on my window sticker.

I would say it is the block heater for your diesel. I would also think that would be standard equipment.

Thanks fellas. I just wish it were a little longer and down around the tow hooks to make it easier to get to with out opening the hood.
