- About This Product
DescriptionThe block heater provided on the Cummins Turbo Diesel makes for quick warm-ups on cold mornings, and it is almost a necessity in the norther latitudes. But, rooting around behind the bumper in cold, soggy weather just to find and uncover the plug can certainly discourage its use.
Install a Block Heater Bumper Plug on your truck and you have the heater connection located on a fixed position right up front behind a flip-open, waterproof cover. One hand can snap open the cover then plug in the power cord.
The Block Heater Plug plugs into the existing block heater and 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: The Block Heater Bumper Plug for the '03-'09 Turbo Diesel trucks comes with heater cable attached.

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.
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.

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 !

The socket doesn't clear the bumper so it fits kinda crooked. More bend on the mounting flage would solve this problem
