got my truck at the start of last summer, just went outside to find the plug in......cant find it? A buddy of mine said to look for a black bag or something tucked up around the engine on the passenger side?

imo, you dont really need it unless you are seeing negative degrees...
also if you plug it in at night, I'd put it on a timer so it only starts a couple hours before you wanna use it.

I'm in Denver - truck is parked outside and even with single digits last weekend, no problems starting without having it plugged in.

Oh it doesnt hurt anything that im aware of...just costly to keep it plugged in. I've started both my LLY and LBZ in -5 or -7F weather w/o any issues, didnt even have to cycle the plugs more than once!

This will be my first winter with a duramax, last winter in northern montana i went through 5 injectors with my (at the time) 05, 6.0 powerstroke. Just not sure what to expect? from what i hear the duramax doesnt mind the cold as much as the powerstroke.
