Mine is a 2013. I'll keep an eye out for the new letter. Thanks for the heads up!

I got the 2nd letter as well just other day. I have not taken my '13 in yet. If I don't get it in next week it will have to wait until August as we are traveling all of July...
I got the second letter too.
I am still on the fence about bringing it in at all. My truck is running great and I don't want the dealer mucking around under my hood.
I just got my '13 back from the dealer after having the recall completed. I also had them do a trans flush and new filter put in. I am at 89k and figured why not knock it out since it was already at the dealer.
The trucks shifts noticeably firmer and smoother. Thus far I am happy with the result. I'll update after a week or two to see if there are any changes.
Any update on reimbursements for the molded lead frame? I’m getting wrenches on the display but they just come and go. So when I take it in I would have to reflash back to stock and request that they not start the truck. My VIN is included in the molded leadframe extended warranty. But I know the chance of it being covered is probably slim to none for me, due to the SC and tuning. Any advice on this? What if I didn’t return the truck to stock when I brought it in?
Well I’m officially good and tired of dealing with dealerships as there aren’t any good ones in my area. I decided screw it, bought the molded lead frame off Ford parts for 156 bucks, and I’ll install it myself. Has anyone here done this on their own? There’s a couple vids on YouTube to follow. Just curious of any traps or tips you guys may have. Also, this doesn’t have to be programmed by the dealer or anything crazy like that does it?

It talks about the thermostat valve direction during installation (which may be a gotcha). The part about the software update is a little confusing though. The way it is written leads me to believe if you just replace the molded leadframe, you are not required to have a software update. But replacing the valve body would require a software update.
Thanks bigrig that is helpful. Hopefully this will solve my problems
