Block heater location?

Sorry for the dumb question guy's,but I cant seem to locate my block heater cord where it plugs in.I read somewhere its near the tow hooks but I still cant locate it,is it possible ,or did they possibly make some of the 03 without the block heater?

Looking at really cold temps tonight and the next few days -deg. night's.Thanks for any help.

Oh and I really like the new look,great job!

If it's there, it should be on the driver's side behind the front tow hook. Mine was strapped up high and was not easy to see the first time. You should be able to locate the end that has a cover over the plug and cord had that corrugated black plastic tubing around it. Look up behind your bumper.

Thanks guys,I'm headed out right now and have another look,maybe it just has never been used and is up high or tucked away like you said.

just look at the oil filter and you should be able to see the heavy power cord in that area and trace it
