That's something Yankees and Canucks use in Winter. Winter is when it's really cold. Cold is the opposite of where U R. Thanks for asking.

V-6 engine heater

Stock part is C0140-00889.
It slips into an existing hole in the rear of the 4.0 V-6 block. From what I've read, it's really that simple. Lube it, slide it in and zip-tie the plug wire where you want it. Google it, you'll find photos of where it goes.

I'd love to lube it and slide it into an existing hole in the rear. I'm not sure I want to zip tie it but that's just me. As far as bock heater, 2.7 doesn't have an existing hole. Thanks.

Sorry- just thought that was a little too much to resist pointing at and laughing.
Don't worry about the Zip-Ties! Check THIS thread out! lol

Thanks for the PN Black Rock- I was wanting one for my 4.0L for ski trips. Sorry to thread jack but what temp do you guys plug them in at generally? In Farenheit.

Heater for ski trips

If it's just occasional ski trips, an adhesive mount oil pan heater may be good enough, and a LOT easier. Doubt you'll be skiing when it's 20 below!
If you have a 4 cyl, I think the only alternative is to put one in the block, requiring draining coolant etc.
