I have a CompuStar.

I have this one in my truck. Its been there for 3 years, and works flawlessly.
RF-1WG5-900SH | 1 Way Remote Kit | Remote Starts and Alarms | Compustar.com

This is whats in the wifes Jeep
RF-P2W9000-SS | 2 Way LCD Remote Kit | Remote Starts and Alarms | Compustar.com

Both are diesel ready. You can put them in yourself in an OBS without a ton of knowledge about electronics. I tapped into the injector wiring for my "Tach" signal wire cause the wire behind the cluster wasn't strong enough for the brain to read.

They have all the good features, such as "Anti-grind" for the starter, locks and unlocks the doors. I don't use the turbo timer feature, but it can be hooked up easily. I just press the start button on the truck while it is running, and after a few seconds, the lights on the truck come on, and it runs for up to 25 minutes or until I shut off the truck with the remote.

Oh, and the customer service is very good. If you run into a problem, they are very good about helping you figure it out over the phone.

With the 6 speed... do you just leave the truck in neutral? Or is there some kind of clutch over-ride?

I used to install at a buddys shop part time. The clifford and viper along with a few others are made buy DEI. clifford used to be one of the best befor this happend now after the problems came out more and more. Now he he installs th prestage by auotovox wich baring the name works quite well I still have one on the 96 and my wifes 01. The problems have been vere little. But do your self a favor don't buy the cheape one and expet it to last. One more thing when it is instaled hook to light for wait to start and don't just set timmer. When ford did my 08 at the deler they set the timer and in the summer when I start a little early for ac I haft to wait th 30second befor it starts. The 5 speed question You haft to get a stick compadable one wich the ones I have seen means Befor you get out you start the truck in nutreal set parking brake hit buton take key out truck get out and shut the door. The truck will still run hit lock doors on fob doors lock and truck shuts off if doors are opened for any reason you must repeat if its done right. I have seen after math of improper in stall with out the steps requried. The person in stalled regular one was showing it off at work started it in gear with no brake set or safety for it. The car started and drove in front of a nother car. Try explaing that to you angent and they would not cover it do to not having it instaled the right way. Any way just my .02
