Diesel Turbo Lifesaver for 2008s?

Does anyone know if these work on the 2008 (6.4) trucks? I called the store a few days ago and they said they haven't tested or found out yet.

I see alot of views. I guess I am not the only one wondering about this

I called and was told to try back in a week or two as they are looking into it. If anyone else is interested in one you might want to call as well. Might get them to work on it sooner.

Well to be honest, I am looking for the lazy approach to being able to leave the truck running for a bit without leaving a key in the ignition. I have warning lights and some other equiptment on the truck and often need to leave the vehicle with these things running.

The reason I was looking at this guy is it comes pre-wired and is easy to use. On my previous vehicle I achieved this via a car alarm which had the auto-start option which also allowed me to remove the key when running.

Just curious but why do you say that?

I had one on my '04 because I thought I needed to have it but in fact over time I grew to love the thing. The ignitition shut off feature is nice it acts like a security system. Being able to leave it running without a key while running into convinence stores or even into the grocery store without having to start it again really was nice.

It isn't listed. That's why I posted the question. I called and was told they don't know if it works on the 2008s yet.

I would like to have one for my truck if it will work.

Mainly I want to cool the exhaust temp before shutoff but I would also like the ERT function for some cases.

I'm not sure how it would be a waste of money unless you just never use it or it does not work, breaks , etc.

For approximately the same dollar amount (mind you a lot more labour) may I sugest that you install a remote starter instead. Virtually all remote starters allow you, while the engine is running, to press the start button on the remote and remove your key. The engine will run for a predetermined time before shutting down or you can also shut it down with the remote. It's a definate must in a cold climate as well!
