Believe it or not, it's not good to let a diesel idle for long periods of time when it's cold out. Someone else can chime in here, but I don't think it's good on these trucks even in warm weather because of the DPF.

When it's cold out, you'll get fuel washing by the cylinder. With the high idle, the truck warms up quicker allowing the truck to burn all the fuel.

I don't know why Ford doesn't make it an option from the factory. It's standard on a Dodge!

Yes they both go into the high idle mode from the factory.

What I meant to say was the manual high idle is standard on Dodge. You turn your cruise control on, hit the set button and it automaticaly goes to 1000 rpm. Continue to hit the accel button and you can bump it up 100 rpm at a time up to 1500 rpm.
