Looking at Mopar parts online I noticed the Mopar cord has some sort of insulation toward the end that plugs into the block heater. Probably because it's close to the exhaust manifolds.
Is yours a Mopar or after market cord? If after market did you wrap any kind of heat protective material on it?
I bought the Mopar cord solely for that reason. I wanted the $5 of insulation they have installed. I might try jacking it up enough just to fit under. I think the lower it is the better the geometry for the suspension to let your hand up there.
Either way it's not too bad of a job. I put some electric grease on the connector to help slide it on. Routed up using the other cables which honestly with the zip ties already on it was worse than plugging in the connector. This weekend I'll be cutting the lower valence to surface mount the plug.
