When you say CA's I take it you mean Control arms I had the Nth 3+ kit before using Nth Lower and upper Front Arms, Nth rear Lower Arms and the Stinger for the rear upper control boom.

Hmm...you know, I was going to get a body lift and tuck everything, but after seeing your Jeep, I'm saving.

My wallet is going to hate you...

EDIT: What angle is your rear driveshaft at?

Rear DS/Pinon angle is 20/21 I have NO vibes at any speed.

Angles steep, but im running a fixed stubby yoke, to get as long as DS as possible.

Although my kit is only 4.5 inches of lift, I am running the Nth TT so effectively I have 6.5 inches of Drivetrain lift.

Next step will be some Walker Evans and 35 MTR's or 36 Iroks Big concern is doing this without anymore lift, and no BL or MML.

Im keeping an eye on some of the upcoming High clearance fenders, possibly some body work on the rear but I have a while to think and plan that out.

Where does that get its data from? OBD port? The RPM data appears to be off a bit

It gets the data from the ODB port, but the dispaly you see now was just a Demo mode display to show it the functions. It fires and starts reading the ODB stats when the Jeep is running.

The only thing I find annoying with the unit is the time lapse with reading actuall MPG, I hope its not right since I can be in 4th at 1200 RPM and its telling me Im getting 7MPG at times, but it averages right on the button.

When you set your tank size it has application data that when you fill up you put exact gallons in so it can really track your Miles per gallon/tank etc. Besides all ODB2 scans it allows me to monitor Head pressure, Intake air temp, water temp and more at a more accurate level.

The only thing I wish it had was a Oil pressure gauge, but oil pressure doesnt read through ODB2 so nothing you can do about it.

Yeah, for a high mileage 4.0 as we all know, oil pressure would be a nice readout to have!!!

Did you mention what that thing costs?

I paid$165 for it with free shipping, I think Mike over at 4x4rockshop has em on his site now as well for around the same price.

I'll see if I can find the link from where I bought it at for the free shipping.

Install took me 30 minutes and that included cutting the surround by my footmans loop Basically it has a 6" cord that plugs into the ODB2 port, I ran it up through the window surround and over to where it sits now. Its just pressed into the area not hard mounted. The unit weighs a few ounces and is maybe 1.5" thick if that.
