Well, if UPS delivered same day I might be able to start. In the mean time there's that whole thing called a regular job and family to take all the spare time. At this point I'll quote Mr Miyagi, "Patience Danielsan".

Your jeep is the same color as mine. It doesnt matter what you do to it, it will out perform ANY other rig.

Nick, if I could this thing inducted I would put a boost gauge there. Otherwise short of an altimeter and air speed indicator I don't know what I'd put there!

I put trans temp in. Could also do one of this clintometer or what ever to show the pitch and roll of the jeep. Or would you want that up on the dash?

Wow, why do y'all hate the VIC display so much? I'm sure I'll eventually find a reason to get rid of it. for the meantime though I'be got a lift to onstall, a bumper to build and I still have to get the rear latch working with the remote.
