2008 6.4 high idle mod, how do I do it?

I just bought a 2008 made 1/08 CC LB 4x4 F350 Lariat with the 6.4.

I do a LOT of idling in the summer and winter. Sometimes for hours at a time in the summer.

I know these engines don't really like to idle for extended periods of time, so I'm looking for a high idle mod and other ways to make it more idle friendly??

Truck is stock currently....

Which way is that? No sure how you would do it without a switch.

simple.. just wire a hot lead to the high idle wire. no switch..

it doesn't take effect until you put on the parking brake anyhow..

yeh.. I didn't add that cause it would be sorta dumb to have the parking brake on any other time. (in my humble opinion)
