Engine block heater....

Anyone that ordered one from the factory, could you point me in the direction where the plug would be located under the hood? Yes, yes, I know I live in Nevada and I'll never need it here haha, but before anyone says anything there's a good chance I'll end up in Alaska in the coming years. Planning for the future I suppose. Can anyone help me out? Just want to make sure it was installed from the factory, and have no idea where to look.

I found this via a google search for: 2012 wrangler engine block heater plug location:

It is located on the drivers side behind the washer fluid reservoir.
The cord is coiled up nicely and zip tied there.

also found this:

The engine block heater cord is found under the hood bundled in front of the battery tray.

Good luck!!

On my 2012 I had a hard time finding the cable also, but it was bundled up next to the brake system valving on the drivers side. I ran it forward and around the radiator to access it from the front via slot in the grill. works great!
