Ummm can you find a way to keep that because it is heading this way and I really don't want the cold. Snow I can handle but the cold I don't want. Need to find my extension cord so I can plug my truck in.

haha I dont mind the cold, I went to the grocery store this morning in sandals and shorts, and some lady started yelling at me. The f150 started this morning when it was -12 but its suppose to get even colder tonight so I will plug it in so it doesnt take so long to warm up...

Winter Weather package or whatever it is called. I have a battery heater and engine block heater in my truck from the factory. Has a plug on the front you can plug an extension cord into and keep the fluids warm to make starting easier in the colder weather.

If you don't have a plug at the front of the truck, then no it probably does not have a block heater.

Ahh I see, didn't know that was without wind-chill.

Cold this morning here too, I'm waiting for my Ranger's battery to charge to drop in the car to get to work.

How stiff are your seats in this temperature?
