- About This Product
- Install And Tech Information
DescriptionGet easy access to the block heater cable and keep the plug clean by putting a Block Heater Bumper Plug in the front bumper of your '10-'18 Ram Cummins Diesel truck.
The Cummins Turbo Diesel engine block heater provided makes for quick warm-ups on cold mornings, but rooting around the bumper in cold, soggy weather to attach a power cord to a dirty block heater cable (if installed) can certainly discourage its use. That cable hanging freely from the front of your truck can also damage the paint and bumper.
Install a Block Heater Bumper Plug on your '10-'18 Dodge Cummins Diesel and you'll have the heater connection located on a fixed position right up front behind a spring-loaded flip-open, waterproof cover. To install, remove the old block heater cable from the engine block and plug the bumper plug cable into the OEM block heater.
- Install the block heater plug conveniently in the front bumper
- Plug is protected behind a flip-open, waterproof cover
- Bumper plug comes with 6 ft. heater cable already attached for easy installation
- No modifications required to your truck
- Installation instructions included
All of the Dodge trucks with the Cummins diesel engine have a block heater already installed. It is located on the passenger side of the engine behind and to the left of the oil filter. Once you locate the heater, remove the black protective cap and install the heater cable.
NOTE: Will NOT work on '14-'17 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel or 2019 Ram Turbo Diesel trucks.

I have had this for about a year. Often I forget to unplug the block heater. This plug has held up to my stupidity. It looks better than just a cable hanging out there too. Seal keeps out the corrosion.

I installed this in a couple of hours. I've used it several times now and I really like the ease of use and the protection of the plug when not in use. I made an ever so slight angle bend in a vise to get the parts to fit perfectly. I also used small strips of rubber between where the unit touches the bumper, to help keep it from sliding. It doesn't. Nice and solid.

Awesome Idea! Works perfect and looks like it came with my truck straight from the factory!

Was told it was on back order and received it 3 days later. Easy to install and looks clean compared to a cord hanging from behind the bumper

I have installed this block heater plug on my 2014 3500. Fit is great. Looks factory. Not 100% sold on the rubber connection to the block heater with a hose clamp... I think I would like a threaded connection better, but this far this seems to work.
Works like charm. This is my 2nd one & 2nd Ram 2500.

Very pleased with the product! Only minor issue I had is, the cord could be about 6-8"longer. Would of made it a better run trying to keep it off hot surfaces. Other than that, highly recommend this from Genos instead of factory.

Installed the heater plug on my 2014 6.7. Was easy to install. I did do it during a oil change so Iam not sure how easy it will be if the oil filter would be in the way. Does the job great

I ordered a block heater cord with bumper mount for my 2014 Ram. The next day I was notified that it was out of stock but they were expecting a new shipment at anytime and it would be shipped immediately. ( we've all heard that, right) two days later I was notified that it was shipping out and would be here in two days. Two days later it was on my doorstep!! Great customer service and honest service reps! What's not to like? Oh, and the product was as described and install was a snap with enclosed instructions! Class act Geno's garage
2016 Block Heater Plug/Box
Dec 10, 2016 | By Tim
Well, after I ordered it I realized My truck already has a block heater attached. Not all do but mine did. I am not going to reroute the entire plug but will try and connect the current through the box. Check your truck, mine was hidden up under the bumper and connected. No where was I told until I looked for it on a your tube video "if" you have one its next to the passenger side tow hook on a zip tie. I will try and mount the box in the spring and modify to this unit it looks cleaner and easier to connect.

Installation was straight forward and as tight as expected. Would like to see a screw on connection for security rather than a plastic clamp ring.

Purchased the bumper plug for the block heater on 2011 6.7L - love it! Hi quality, good fitment, works great. Keeps the plug from slapping around, plus clean and dry.
Block Heater plug mount

I expected just a little better fit and finish for the extra dollars spent to mount the plug. The black flanges not match the contour of the bumper exactly and it would be nice if it was chrome instead of black.

Item was on backorder, but was shipped within a week. Very pleased with service and product!

I bought this for a 2016 Ram 3500 6.7L. It mounted up nicely and only took about 30 min to install. No more crawling under the truck. Should of come from the factory this way.

Bumper plug is the ticket
Jan 30, 2017 | By Michael Borum
Easy installation and one-handed operation make this worth the 10 minutes it took to install.
Nice clean setup

Great set up but tough install if you have big hands. Make sure truck is cooled down.
Feb 14, 2017 | By Michael
45 minutes to install, from the time ups dropped the package till I was cleaned up. Once I had it routed to the block, I stuck my arm thru the fender well to plug the cord into the block. The hardest part was the install of the retaining ring. Really clean plug at the bumper.

Easiest and very high quality product!!

Tight, but easy 15 minute install. The plug is easily accessible on the bumper, and protected from the elements.

This product is easy to install, and works great at protecting the plug. Installed in two of our trucks

I wish the instructions were a little clearer with regard to the assembly of the bracket on the bumper. Also Suggestions on the best way to route the cable would be good. Other than this, It looks to be a great product.

Block Heater Plug
Nov 15, 2017 | By Tom Mihalic
I received the product in two days and it was exactly what I wanted. The only thing you need to be aware of is that the install in the bumper is very easy, but the connection to the block heater plug is very difficult to reach. I ended up having to remove my right front tire and then it was still tight. If you have a monkey for a friend, he might make the install easier. It hasn't been cold enough to try the heater yet.
Nov 25, 2017 | By Craig
Great product bumper mount fits perfect. Cord seems like it will last trying to get the plastic clamp tight was a bit of a challenge I think a threaded piece would fit tighter but overall great product works like a charm!
Great addition to my Ram!

Works great. Easy install. Thicker gauge wire would improve product.
Stick with the stock plug
Jan 6, 2019 | By BRENT
My wife bought this as a Christmas present and I just got done trying to install it. It is well built, but the socket for the block is push on rubber with a plastic clamp ring. I could not get the clamp ring tight to keep the plug from popping off. I removed the airbox and intake tubes to the turbo for room. I finally just said heck with it. The stock screw retainer is a much better solution.
Not worth it
Oct 26, 2019 | By Kevin Geiger
If you have the factory plug stick with it. I thought this would give a clean easy way to plug in the block heater, after install, I wish I had just left the factory plug. Where the plug mounts to the bumper was very unclear in the photos. It basically sandwiches together with the bumper, but even after tightening the bolts it still isn't very tight, I can slide it along the bumper if I push hard on it.
Nov 27, 2019 | By Mitch
Easy install. Took just shy of hour but that's only because it took 45 minutes to get the protective dust came from factory off. Highly recommend. Excited to get to use it.
