Block heater routing

I just installed my heater cord today...and I have pics!! I am not sure if my cord was routed correctly or not. I will have 2 pics - one is of the socket where it plugs into and the other is of the final resting place of the line cord. The final resting place is to the right of the left tow hook (towards the center of the truck). I have a 2010 2500 crew cab, 6.7. I tried to load the pics, but I guess the files are too big. Can anyone tell me how to reduce the size of the pic???

You can use use zip ties to route the cord anyway you want. I put one of these on my truck, it makes plugging the extention cord in less of a hassle & it has a snap on cover to keep dirt & water out the plug.

block heater routing

My installation went OK - once I found the plug (just behind the oil filter). I had a hard time finding a route for the cord. I ended up going to the right of the radiator, at the bottom of the radiator and snaking it through the bumper, ending up just to the right of the right (passenger) tow hook. I used the attached plastic pins. Theyn lined up almost perfectly with the small holes in the inside of the frame. All in all - it was an educational experience for me.
