OBD II Port

I just bought a 2007, F350, King Ranch, 5 speed, 4.30....
How do I tell if my truck has an OBD II port?
And what is OBD II?

I have a ScanGauge II with Xgauge.... and want to format it to show my trans temp and water temp and oil temp. But I think I have to have the OBD II port.

Ok... so I'm new to this diesel talk... I'll learn....

Thanks

You have the port. Anything made after 1994.5 and sold in the US is required too. Its at the bottom of the dash. Look up right above the gas pedal. It almost looks like a larger version of an old computer Joystick plug
