Well our issue is we are spread out to much, I mean im 45 minutes from Garrett but im down there darn near every weekend, In winter its tough cause other than a QSL meet there isnt much to do, I liked the idea of the CCR guys had a snow day where they went and played in the snow, almost a sled riding thing, got some kids involved. Family type stuff?

Word on the street is those actually make the trucks run better, As ford used a 190 degree t-stat and the motor was designed by International to run a 203 degree

correct. but 95's used a short stub thermo. but if you upgrade to a newer style (just get a new pump there all the new style now)
and the thermo i just bought (203degree thermo from dieselsite.com) is the long stub witch i have read seals better and better flow (something like that.)
but for 45bucks i wont complain if my truck will run better and get to op temp faster and get a few better mpg's

what exactly does the idm mod do and how do you do it? Is there a company that sells modded ones or that will do it for you?

the idm mod is a resistor that you cut out of the IDM and solder a new one in. What this does is increase the voltage on the IDM to somewhere around the 140 range (stock obs 100. 99-02 Sd is 110 02-03 SD is 120 i believe).

here is the mod

and here is a modded one from beans
