I think the truck should have a block heater in it you just need to buy a cord for it from Ford.

Someone correct me if I am wrong.

What year truck do you have? I believe the earlier years they came standard. Then after Ford made it an option.

Crawl under the drivers side of the truck. Right above where the oil filter goes you will see where the block heater plugs in. If there is a cord there...trace it back to where Ford zip-tied it up...usually in the vicinity of the tow hook.
