- Install And Tech Information
DescriptionGet easy access to the block heater cord and keep the plug clean by putting a Block Heater Bumper Plug in the front bumper of your '03-'09 Dodge Cummins Diesel truck.
- 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
Install the Block Heater Bumper Plug 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.
The Block Heater Plug installs in the opening next to the passenger's side tow hook opening. If your truck is equipped with OEM tow hooks they will not interfere with the installation of this product.
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.

block heater cord assembly
Oct 4, 2016 | By bruce weaver
The socket doesn't clear the bumper so it fits kinda crooked. More bend on the mounting flage would solve this problem

Looks well designed overall and the mount fits without issue on the passenger side of the front bumper opening. The connector to the actual heater element is secured by a a plastic clip. Think wide reusable wire tie type of clamp. I just got tired of my prior plug dangling from the bumper and finally bought the right item. No complaints here at all. As always.. thanks Geno's Garage !

Worked good.Not to hard to install. Could have used a third hand a couple of times.
Works as it should

Recently, Wisconsin has dipped into the teens. The heater keeps my block warm, my intake heater hasn't kicked in yet. The real test will be next week, subzero temps expected. Rec'd.

I bought this item because I was moving to SD. I'm glad I did because it's been -15 degrees a few times already and the truck cranks perfectly every morning.

Nice product. Makes plugging in the truck more convenient, and I like that I don't have a plug dangling all the time.
Nice and easy

Very nice product. Easy to install and gives a nice clean look better than the plug hanging out the front by the grill

Great construction. Directions were spot on. I do wish the cord were shorter- I had to manage an extra 1.5 ft. or so, but as that part is built for multiple vehicles it's understandable. Makes it easy to plug the truck in one-handed, even holding a newborn. Highly recommended!
Looks better than the cord just dangling...

The included bracket for the 06-09 rams does not work on the Laramie without either bending the bracket more or notching the top of the fascia. I chose to omit the bracket and just drill through the fascia and the bumper behind it. Looks good installed but temps have not dropped enough to require it.
Fairly simple install

Good quality parts, and instructions that are easy to understand. Installation went without issue, and removing the air intake made it a whole lot easier to work with
Not without problems

I've had this on my truck since last fall just in time for winter in Indiana. One cold morning I went out to unplug my truck and found the cover to not have the spring feel it had and noticed the pin gaming out the drivers side of the housing. I kept pressing the pin in but it would work back out. Today I saw the pin had fallen out and the cover is now gone. Which is too bad since I had high hopes for this being a great addition to my truck.
