    Don't have to read... the first post tells you all you need. You want "Bambi mode" and it should be well documented in the Google doc. Don't cheap out on the OBD interface... the OBDLink MX is highly recommended.

    just upgrade them to rigged off road lights and wire them to toggle and then bambi mode will be bypassed and once you use forscan ford and see the foot print when they hook up too it, they will tell you, warranty voided

    ^^^ Fairly certain Ford isn't going to do squat about you adjusting parameters in FORscan. It's not as if you are reprogramming the ECU...eg: custom tune...you are simply changing factory settings that already exist.

    Actually, you're reprogramming the Body Control Module... but no, it won't set off any alarms when the dealer plugs the scan tool into the truck.
