Engine block heater

Can anyone tell me where this is and what it looks like. I would like to run am extension cord for it and I just don't know where to look. I have found many people talking about it but not a good picture and description of where it is. Thank you in advance for the help.

The heater plug is located on the passenger side of the engine, down near the oil pan. It is difficult to see from above, let alone attempt to reach. To use it, you would need a cord from mopar or another vendor that is made to plug into the heater. This cord would be permanently left in place and stored next to the fuse box until used. Then it would be readily accessible when you wanted to use the block heater.

Thank you so much for the info, would you think it would be easier to drop the skid plate and get at it from the bottom?

I still haven't installed mine. The cord is currently sitting in the backseat of my jeep waiting for me to make time and investigate how best to proceed. I think there is another thread that talks about how others have done it, though.

Skid plate no, but you could get at it from the passenger side fender well liner.
