Forscan is free. You get full trial for 2 months and then for a small fee you can get an extended license. Personally I did the lifetime one because they deserve the support for what they provide. It’s a WIKI group so crowdsourced and not a company. https://forscan.org/home.html
Ok so what do I use to connect to the Ford? My cell?

On the website they recommend an OBD unit that connects to your PC. It is not recommended to use wireless to do these settings. I have both but decided to buy the wired one to play it safe.

I want to do this pretty badly after hearing someone needing it on dunes. A little bit nervous though.

It's a joke to do. Connect OBD2 to your truck, download forscan and enable it (its literally change a single value) and to install the button all you have to do is pop some of the center trim up and swap the button.

Is it possible to add the terrain management selector on the low model dash?

Can you post a picture of your transfer case selector?
It's the basic black and blue screen in the instrument cluster

Your tcase selector looks identical to mine. I installed the TM button version and made it all work through forscan.
