yes our trucks do need it, im looking to get one installed now the dealer quoted me $839. he said its the compustar 6000as, pro901ss remote, blade bypass, backup battery, tilt sensor, drone and some other thing. he had me on the phone for my whole 45 min drive to work. now im not sure if that's a good price or not but that's a lot of money. I would like to do it myself with the compustar 6000as and the fortin evo-all but im not sure about the data link would work between the 2.
