I'm replacing my FICM.. which aftermarket supplier is #1

Hey guys.. I own a 2006 F250..my FICM crapped the bed. I checked on a factory module and they want $700 plus for more factory junk that I'm sure will fail again. Question is who's the best Aftermarket supplier of 58v FICM's? All opinions are welcome. I'm trying to make a well informed purchase here. Needless to say I've sunk enough green into this motor.. Trying to get the best bang for the buck.

Did you check on the price of a half shell ficm.. You can change just the power supply portion of your FICM with a new one. I think those are about $300.

I'm open to that. When I spoke to the factory parts guy I got "geeze I don't know if you can get just the board" and "58v?..i don't know what the voltage is.. It doesn't say" my issue isn't what to get.. It's from whom..

58v ficms are from bullet proof diesel, around 500ish bucks.

^^^^Yup, you cant beat Bullet Proof's set up.
Now that I have said that I would also like to say that their is other routes that you can go. FICMRepair.com is awesome. And I bet you will have a tought time trying to find someone on here that is not happy with Ed's work. That is who took care of mine. And so far the truck couldnt be happier.
You can also go onto Amazon and get the Dorman Ficm. This is what my brother did he is happy with it.
But I will say again the bullet proof diesel is the best that you can get. They are spendy for sure. But you wont hear anybody regreting getting one. And when/if mine craps the bed if I got the extra fun money laying around Ill probably go this route.

I'm replacing my FICM.. which aftermarket supplier is #1

BPD FICM power supply, every single part of it is brand new, not upgraded parts on the OEM board. You can set it at 58, 53 or stock 48 volts. The 53 setting will keep it just under the "Over voltage" code which gets dealership mechanics excited when they see it because they are convinced there's a short in the FICM no matter how many times you tell them its suppose to be that voltage.

bulletproof diesel again is the best, but how are your batteries and alternator? a lot of times (not always) the ficm goes out because its not getting enough voltage during start up. there is lots of stuff in that thread and i hope it helps
