Yep, take it to the dealer. At the dealer I go to, he did it for free. He even had the new car sales manager come out and see how it works. Sales Mgr. said the he expects all trucks on his lot to have it activated. It is pretty cool. When you start the truck, turn cruise on and idle will jump to about 1100, then it will go up 100 rpm each time you push resume up to a max of 1500. Pretty nifty ... especially when free.

Thanks for the info... question on how the feature is activated?
do you have to turn your cruise on after starting the truck to get it to jump into an high idle mode?? also do you have the phone number to the dealer that performed this programming? I would like to forward the info to my dealer so I can have the same thing done..
thanks

Start Truck -> While in Park just sitting there, turn cruise on and the RPMs will go up. Your dealer will have the "How-to". It is a normal operational feature.

I beleive it's on any 3rd Gen auto... the manuals will do it on their own if it's cold enough and running long enough.

Oh, and no, I don't think it's for the gassers.

You can also use a Bullydog Downloader to enable this feature. If you have a buddy that has one, just load the stock program into your truck and it will enable the high idle and save a trip to the dealer.

SO, before I go out and start diggin around, are the standard Cummins plugs on the side of the engine on these, I have not taken time to really crawl into this thing yet and was just curious if I can hook up the PTO on/off signal on this 5.9L just like on the 5.9L's in the bigger trucks. They are all the ISB, just with different options and programming, so far as I can tell. So, does the same wiring work on these or are there completely different plugs and connections for the ECM?
