Welcome aboard as a contributing member Kyle, and congrats on your new Ford Super Duty!!
Before being reflashed, our trucks would not "remember" the gear indicator setting when the key was turned off. After the reflash, they do.
If you can see the gear list (1 at bottom and 6 at the top) on the right side of the center display, and this appears each time you start your truck, you have the new software.
If you do not see the gear list displayed while the engine is running and you are in "drive", press the manual toggle switch on the shift lever one time at the top of the switch. This should turn on the gear indicator. Once you have this turned on, shut the truck down. When you restart the truck and put it in "drive" you should see the gear list display. Before the reflash, the gear list display would not come back on and we had to toggle the switch "on" every time.
Now - I think it is only fair to warn you, many dealers will reflash your truck "just to be sure" when they have it in thier shop for any reason (first oil change is common). In the early days of reflashing, some dealers messed up the reflash and a few guys had sick trucks after. I do not know if this is still happening but if you feel your truck has the new software, you should make a very strong request to leave your truck alone when you leave it at the dealer!!
If your truck has not been reflashed - I strongly urge you to get this done. The power increase is nice but you may not notice much in the seat of your pants HOWEVER the changes to the transmission are awesome.
