Calling all car electronic guru's

I want to install a remote starter and keyless entry in my 04 6.0. I'm curious what you guys recommend and what is needed to install into my truck. I don't believe I have factory alarm or keyless entry. I plan on installing this myself as I have some extra time on my hands.

I know I need a system with a delay for glow plugs, preferably 2 way, and other than that I'm not too picky. I'm not sure if I am going to need an interface or not which is why I'm here. Which systems do you guys recommend and other parts?

I put a Compustar in my 95 and had one put in my 05. I am about to pull one out of my 95 and put in my 2010. Some of them have turbo timer but CompuStar has a glow plug wire as well as a longer run time for diesels.

Any part numbers? I'm just not sure exactly what I need to get. I don't want to rip my dash apart only to find out I don't have everything.

I have the Viper Remote start with alsrm and i am pleased with it... I just had it installed.. Dont remember the part number but i will try to find it.... I did need one mecury switch for the hood if u wanted that option.. Also i know there way one relay need for the doors i bielve...

Does ur truck have the keyboard on the driverside door.. If so u have keyless entry and a factory alarm.. U may just have to buy a diff fob.. Check local dealer or Ebay..

Nope no keyless entry on my truck, a major reason why I am wanting to do this.
