Charlie, does your ranger have the plug in that warms the oil pan and a batter blanket that keeps the battery warm?

My battery blanket and block heater are wired together.

Its a pad that wraps around the battery..not rocket science. Lol.
Its 3* outside..im not going out to take a pic lol.


On another note, yesterday a bud helped me haul my two project motorcycles and bike trailer to the storage unit i rented.
I had them in my little shed in my backyard. Today i moved my two atvs from the garage to the shed. Goinf to clean out the garage so i can put my ranger in (im sure the wife will bitch cuz she will want her car in there).
The garage isnt heated...im not spoiled and have a heated garage like Terry lol.

Alright. So I don't see any wires going into it. But I put my hand inside it between the battery and blanket and it is warm. So it might be. Lol
