It's just hooking switch 4 to the PTO wire under your dash. 3 min mod...

It brings the idle up to 1200 rpm as opposed to 1000 or whatever it is from the factory. Helps to avoid wet stacking if you do any extended idling. Also it enables you to instantly kick the idle up instead of waiting for the trucks computer to do it on its own.

It will actually kick up from 1200-2400 based on how charged your batteries are. If your batteries are low it will rev higher to charge them (of you are connected to the PTO wire).

I just did this a few minutes ago,

I used the pto wire (yellow with green stripe) and attached it to my #3 upfitter (Supposedly Violet with green stripe, but the "green" stripe looked more Blue/Green to me) I used #3 as it is the lower amp of the upfitters. On an 08 at least IDK if it chaned over the years. https://www.fleet.ford.com/truckbbas...tml/q117r1.pdf
It really is easy to do, took me probably 8 minutes as it took me a while to find all the wires, I had never even looked at the upfitter wiring (or the other blunt wires) before. As none of mine were labeled, I had to google the wiring diagram to find the correct wires.

2008 (Job 1) F250 King ranch 4x4, snow plow prep package with 2.5 level. Black Maxx, B&W Diehard platinums. Dieselsite coolant and transmission filters, NCU Motorsports/amsoil oil bypass kit. Turbo blankets, 5.5 PMF traction
Please collect and message me Shell, Rotella oil cap codes aka "my miles matter" I'm trying to save up for a hat or something.
