Itís been a long time since Iíve posted anything but this needs to be shared. Maybe sticky worthy? Maybe not.
I no longer own my 6.0. I did buy a 17 250 XLT CCSB gasser last June. So in June 2017 it was next to impossible to find an XLT with powerscope mirrors. Now the 2019 XLTs are almost coming standard with them, from what I've seen, as a $280 upcharge.... that said, after the fact upgrade is about $1,400.00 - $1,500.00 with all new OEM parts. Yes, I'm a little butt hurt over it.
Using a friends 17 Lariat 6.7 I was able to track down everything I needed. Installation is a piece of cake and the use of ForScan gets done everything you need to activate all installed parts. My only hang up right now is figuring out where in the coding the puddle lamp settings are. They are the only things that donít work yet, but powerscope/fold & spot lights are fully operational.
Another thing to note is, from what Iíve seen, an XL will not support this upgrade due to the body harness. My XLT body harness did however support this, and everything was plug & play with the exception of the door harness and module replacements.
OE door modules will not support the powerscope functions. The modules will simply not allow you to enable the function. Be sure to save your OE door modules as built data before removing them. The new modules will come with data in them, however it will create a list of DTCís because the door harnessís are the most basic door harness that will support powerscope mirrors & will still have provisions for other items that remain unused if you donít have/want bells & whistles. Replace the new moduleís data with your OE as built data, then only make the appropriate changes to enable the powerscope mirrors.
