Hi my name is ***** ***** I'd like to help you. I understand you are looking for information to assist you in installing a remote starter. However, I would like to suggest an alternative that might fit your needs better. I work for Washington D.C.'s transit system and every bus has a Cummins engine equipped with an ProHeat diesel burning auxiliary heater. These units are very efficient at rapidly heating the cooling system without having to run the engine. The company makes a unit especially for trucks such as yours. The most popular being the ProHeat X45. Although it costs about $2300, you generally will save that amount in fuel costs over two years.

One of the best features is that you can program when and how long the system stays on based on time or outside temps. However, if you would still like to get info on bypassing your clutch, please let me know and I will release your question for another expert to answer.
