I liked mine when I had it on. As long as they tie into the glow plug system or can be programmed to have a delay (so the GP warm up), you'll be good to go.

Love it on my truck. It's great in the summer to get the truck to cool off inside before getting in.

I love mine.
Mine wasn't cranking long enough either, I had it adjusted, now every once in awhile it cranks about a second to long..... which makes for a long second (it only does that when I'm trying to show off).
I got it mainly for the mornings, I let it warm up a few minutes before jumping on the highway to town. I only have a tenth of a mile of dirt road before hitting the highway. I love my diesel, but she takes a few minutes to warm up.

It is fun to start up from a distance and watch peoples reactions. It would be really cool if you could rev up the engine.

A quality system from a quality installer and I'd highly suggest it. Well worth it.

Worth it's weight in gold. Especially with the oil induced injectors we have. Getting the oil warmed up before taking off down the road is a good thing... especially in winter. I have the Autopage with the two-way pager and starter disabler. Saved my truck from being stolen twice while in El Paso.

i love mine. like stated earlier i start it up a few minutes before i am ready to leave. This allow the engine to start to warm up a little. It still seems like it takes forever to get heat in the cab

I've got a Python remote starter and it works great. I also like having a key fob for locking and unlocking the doors, as well as an alarm when I have valuable stuff in the truck!
