You need an adapter that has to be programed for the specific head unit. I had bought one to install but it got lost in storage.

I'm still hanging around the Forums i just have a 04 Golf TDI as a DD. I'm gonna do a scrambler build in the next year. Looking at putting a diesel in it.

Not a big update, but just ordered this because my current trackbar is shot. I ordered it adjustable.

So i did the tank tuxk yesterday with my buddy. It wasnt too hard, just time consuming, took around 7-8 hours. Heres some pics.

We started off by removing everything out of the spare tire well and cut that out.

Then we were left with a hole in the trunk with visable access to the tank.

The next step was to unbolt the gastank, the hitch and the evap canister, and move everytging out of the way.

The above picture is with no tank in the jeep at all.

We then had to cut off the mounts on the tank skid and then cut another 6" lower to get rid of all that material. Then we welded up the mounts back onto the skid creating a tuck

We then had to drill a 3" hole through the frame to run the gas lines through, and we surrounded the hole with 3" exhaust piping

The filler neck had to be cut down so that the hose wouldnt kink.

After the skid was welded, and the hoses were ran, we bolted the tank back up and put the jeep down on its own weight. Overall we gained 7 inches out of the tuck. Im very happy with the way it came out.
