Angry Question about relay

Ive been going to many auto parts stores and ive asked for the glow plug relay (GPR) but i tell them the info on my truck and they give me a different one than the one i took out of my truck which is insulated and longer than the one they have.ive been to many auto parts stores and they show the same damn thing!!!And ive been to the dealer but they want to charge me an arm and a leg for it.I live in California.Heres a pic of the GPR and if anyone knows of a way to test it while off the truck it would be appreciated.

Go to NAPA and order a GPR109. This is the cheap version, should be around $25. GPR 110 is a better relay should run you about $75, supposedly nitrogen filled in order to prevent corrosion and last longer. The GPR109 comes with a 12 month warranty. For 1/3 price I decided to go with the cheaper one. I can get 4.5 years for the same price...

PS you should put in your signature info about your truck, so we know which model we are talking about (Upper left corner "User CP" then "Edit Signature")

The picture you have is not a glow plug relay it's an intake air heater relay. The glow plug relay is shorter and does not have the rubber grommets

99 F-250 7.3
97 Dodge 3500 5.9

In the manual it says that this is the glow plug relay but thats the relay my truck has. My truck is a 2000 f-250 somebody told me that it looks like that because its the "california" model.I dont know anything about diesels this is my first diesel ever.

The picture in your last post is of and Old Body Style (Or OBS) it only has one relay on the top left side of the engine.

Your truck has two relays on the top left side of your engine. Follow the leads. One will take you to the X pipe (AIC) that hooks to the turbo. You need the other one. As mentioned above, go to NAPA and get the GPR109 for around $25.00. They bolt right in and work very well for a few years if not more.
