Engine block heater cord?

Ok so my new truck (2012) came with the cold weather group- engine block heater. My question is why can't I fing the cord to plug into? Looked in the usual front spot, on the right side where it was on my 2004, its now popping out at me. Anyone want to point me in the correct direction, thanks.

The plug is there right next to your oil filter, you have to buy the cord for it, check out Geno's Gararge or even eBay for one.

When I bought mine it was off eBay and the seller was the dealer I bought the truck from I wonder if they take them off to make more money on the side. I thought it was odd myself.

Right above the pass side tow hook. Reach into the bumper, feel above the opening, its in a plastic clip.

Nope, all Cummins come with the block heater, cord is extra. Not everyone needs it. If you have the cold weather package or shows block heater on your window sticker, you have the cord. Mine said I had the block heater and sure enough, there is was. I just had a heck of a time locating the hidden plug end.

All Cummins's have the actual heating unit? I just need the cord I'm guessing??

Good to know!... I was worried how my California rig was going to handle the Midwest move
