Anyone have an engine idle controller?

On my F-650 at work I have a cruise / RPM controller, kinda nice actually when it's cold to let it run a little higher to get it wamred up in the morning. Anyone have one that works with a powerstroke? It get pretty darn cold here at night and even idleing at like 1k would warm it up a little better for me before driving to work. Or would these powerstrokes not like to be idled higher?

Thanks!

I have an AIC I've been trying to sell for a while. Should plug right in to your under-dash harness and work fine. Has PTO harness, too, but no bracket.
Send me an email if you're interested:
sales@rosewooddieselshop.com.

An OBS or 2, or 3...
