No I've got the same one you have I think. It's a little toggle switch with three positions. 50-70-115. You get 50 for having it installed, the middle setting gives you 70, the last setting gives the 115. How long have you had yours installed? Any problems? Do you have to take it out for service? Thanks.

Dusty, I bought mine back in May last tear its a 350 dually 4 X 4. Crew cab Lariat. I traded my 01 Dodge for it after looking at the new 4 door Cab Dodge came out with.And driving the new Cummins. There were no diffrences in the power from 01 -03. The cab design sucked. The Ford out pulls the Dodge any day of the week. I have had some idling trouble, and it has stalled on me a few times. But overall a great engine tranny package. It will pull the 47 at 75-80 very comfortably. But like troutly said it has a little sway to it and it sags a little. The Dodge was more stable, But they ride on the springs heavier than the Fords. My .02 get the Ford 6.0

I have over 8,000 miles and no problems. I have not had to go back to the dealer yet, but it is easy to remove. I also gutted the cat, removed the muffler and have dual pipes coming straight out the back. Sounds awsome!!

Mark and Troutly. You complained of sag in the back. Do you guys know what springs you have? I am going to replace the ones in the back of my truck soon and I have the ones that are lighter then the X springs and I think I am going to go with the X springs in the back.
