Block Heater Cord Installation, Help!! Pics

I have an 06 ram 2500, and went ahead and got the block heater cord cause mine did not come with one. I, an idiot when it comes to diesels(since this is my first one) can not find the location to plug it in to the truck. I need some help finding the location. Please help, Pics would be all so great, to see how you guys routed it. Thanks in advance.

In the picture right behind the oil filter housing you will see an orange rubber boot, that is the block heater cable. I think there is a little plastic cap over the plug in but I don't remember as I did mine quite some time ago. Sorry it's not the best picture of what you are asking but it is the only one I could find that had it in the picture. Hope that helps.

the cord plugs in underneathe your exhaust manifold and next to the oil filter it has a black screw on cap you need to remove for the plug to go in

I just did this the other day when my AFE came in. It is much easier to get to with the stock intake removed otherwise it takes some work to get you hand in there. Is you KN just a filter or is it a full cold air system? If it is a full system then when you take out the stock intake install the cord prior to installing the KN system. This allows you to look at where you want to run the wire much easier.

No picture....but it's on the bottom of the block....just behind the oil filter. It's just as easy to lay on your back and reach it from underneath....if there has never been a cord on it , there will be a black plastic cap threaded on the plug location.....just unscrew the cap and screw the block heater cord nut on....route the wire up front and your done.

True Vaule Truck described the location very well. I did mine from underneath and it took a little wiggling to get the plug in then the lock nut on, but it only took a few minutes.
