For your info, the ITS does come with a trim "module" and trim sender that can give trim limit. You either connect the trim sender to the engine ecu for "SmartCraft" trim position (which won't have trim limit) or hook it to the included trim "module", which converts the "digital" trim signal to a fixed electronic trim limit and output for a standard electric trim gage. It is much more reliable than the rheostat because it is a hall effect, non-contact sender (it's not a rheostat or pot) and it is also isolated from the trim pin. I will be gone for a few days, but if someone doesn't post a picture of it by the time I get back, I will post one. The same sender arrangement is also available on the standard HD Bravo (non-ITS). Some people look at the new sender and think that it's just another "problem" variation of the rheostat, but it's a big improvement. Now it just needs a high quality electric trim gage to match. The gaffrig works ok, but I prefer a straight vertical movement with some markings to remember positions by.
