been a few years since i did that kind of work, but block heaters were the best than. hose heaters are easier to put in, but not as good for heating the block. i would have a mech. install the block heater if your not mech. inclined.

Get a "Zero Start" block heater. Then check the instruction to see where it fits on your vehicle. If it has easy access, it can be a 20 min. project sometimes. If access is terrible think about having a shop install it. Also take extra measures when knocking out the frost plug to make sure it doesn't fall into the blocks water jackets.

My truck came with one, but I bought a van a few months back and had one installed. Cost was around $100. Vans are not easy to work on but even if they were--$100 isn't much considering the nightmare you could end up with if things don't go exactly according to plan.

Good Luck

I assume you're planning on heading north. Can't imagine you'd need one where you're located. My truck doesn't get plugged in 'til the forecasted low hits -10F or less (e.g. the last two nights!).

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
