which remote start

I was thinking about getting remote start for my 04 6.0 I'v installed them before and will prob install this myself. But as i am new to the diesel worl I was wondering which kit you guys would recomend. Im not looking to spend a ton of money so I dont need a million bells and whistles. One question I have is about the glow plugs. From what I read many have a timer but is there anyway to tap into the glow plug light so it starts when the glow plug go out as it changes depending on temperature. And living in the northeast were Im at it can be 70 one day and 30-40 the next dont want to have to change timer all the time. Sorry for the long winded post but I dont wana waste a lot of money as times are tight now. Thanks guys

The "delay" takes care of that. I have the viper 5701. It was a pain to install but works great. On our trucks, the glow plug light goes out but they are still on (up to two minutes). All you have to do is set the delay to however long you normally wait to start. You will be fine. mine is set for 30 seconds and that is a long time....

The only thing I don't like about my setup is that the stupid keyfob used to go off in my pocket and lock, unlock, start my truck.... So I figured out how to lock the fob. Now it buzzes at me when buttons are pushed accidentally. Also, the batteries have to be changed every 6 weeks.
If you have an ipod or iphone, you could get the viper smart start. No keyfobs. You can start your truck from across country if you like.
