Hi, Looking for help on an engine block heater for my 2020 Wrangler. Are they factory installed? Looking to see if there is something that would work when a plug-in is not available. Does that exist?

Welcome to the forum. Which engine do you have?

When you say "a plug-in is not available" what are you referring to?

We go into the mountains to ski and often times there won't be a readily available plug for us to hook the block heater up to. We have the 3.0 L V-6. I don't think it was installed with an engine block heater, so I was looking to see if there was something that might work in an unconventional way

An interesting situation. I have not seen anything in practice, but the concept is feasible if you get inventive and are willing to take along the needed hardware.

A block heater requires a relatively significant amount of heat, so you are going to need a big battery or a generator to power an electric heater, or a burner of some kind to provide indirect heat. The generator or the burner will need low-temperature fuel, so you are looking at taking gasoline or propane.
