F550 Cruse control

I purchased a 2007 F550 bucket truck and i need cruse control for it, Ford says it cant be done do to it being a commercial vehicle? The ECU is not burned for cruse control... I want to know if it can be done, nothing special about the truck, its just ur typical 6.0 chassis with a different bed on it.

No need to reprogram the ecu. Just install steering wheel with cruise buttons and a clock spring with cruise wires and the ecu will recognise. I literly just did this last week. 30 minutes and you need a steering wheel puller.

Nice, so did you just order a factory cruse control setup from Ford? Does all that come with instructions? Were does the clock spring go.

Thanks for your help!!

Yes, you can get the OEM kit that does come with steering wheel, clockspring & instructions, but it only comes with the black plastic wheel and I wanted leather. So ordered a NOS leather wheel on ebay and a clock spring for cruise. The clock spring is the ribbon connector behind the steering wheel. Disconnect the batteries 10 minutes to allow the restraints control module (RCM) to de energize before removing airbag.
