Hemi Block Heater install

During the Hemi swap, I noticed this deep hole in the driver's side of the block and always wondered what the purpose was. Well, as I was looking into engine block heaters for my JK, I found this on a 2012 Ram (82212497). Looks like you can get it anywhere between 85-100 bucks.

Straight forward install, pull the starter and bolts right in. Comes with a harness that is plenty long to get out to the front bumper.

Looks a lot easier than it was on the 3.8. Draining everything, knocking out the freeze plug and then putting everything together is a pain in the ass.
