Whatever works for you, most seem to encounter a no start situation at the worst moment due to a bad gpr. Since I've owned this truck (12 yrs) I never had an issue, (I know, you haven't either). I also replace my cps once a year too, .......same reasons. These parts are cheap enough as it is anyway.

I put in a Stancor and I've had good results with it, although I do keep my old GPR in the truck box to put back in, just in case. The only problem I have with the Stancor is that it's a pain in the neck trying to put one in on a Cali emissions truck, what with the shunt. I've got mine sort of jerry rigged, and it's not pretty but it sure starts up nicely.

1997 F250HD XLT Super Cab, 7.3 DI (Cali - wish I had the Federal), ZF 5 speed manual, 4.10 full float rear, Dana 50 IFS, 4WD manual locking hubs, Moog greasable ball joints, Stancor relay, upgraded downpipe, 2" (I think, they were already there when I bought the truck) add a leafs, DIY Tymar intake, and maybe a chip from a previous owner - I haven't had a chance to look yet. 209k miles or so.
