You bought a fine truck there. That "Heat-Sync" device is there to solve the big issue on these trucks, which is the overheating of the PMD which is the "Pump Mounted Driver" meaning an electronic circuit that takes gas pedal position info from the engine computer and increases and decreases fuel to the motor. The PMD would overheat and the engine would stall. The other big issue that will leave you on the side of the road is the failure of the electric fuel pump under on the frame under the drivers seat area. That truck pulls just as strong as any Cummins Dodge of that era. You will have to do some careful measuring to see what brand gooseneck will work with that bed.
