Thanks Chris for posting this

Its not what I started out to do , but after making 2 other brackets for on the pillar and not liking the look I made this one up just to get it mounted SOMEWHERE!!! :wink:
Wires are all hidden, doesn't show too much from the front , easy to remove if need be for security ( bracket and Scan Gauge both are velcroed on ) so I guess it does what it needs to do :lol:

lean over the wheel? :? :?
any where else you would need to reach or stretch to reach it and take your eyes off the road
I had it stuck everywhere in the two weeks I had it before mounting it here, seems to be most conveinant place at least for me

If I ever had a scan gauge that is where I would mount it....
In fact I would probably just "Borrow" Tom's mount!!!! :D

any way rip it is able to pull some data from the computer on the jeep like the ones you see. It is a basic data monitor with a built in scan tool. Also it is plug and play

I commonly set mine on gallons/hour, voltage, manifold pressure (16 psi boost is common), water temp (had some glow plug issues) - but there are a lot of other settings too - basically anything the computer reads - the Scangauge will display.

you can also read and clear codes.

but on CRD's you can't leave it plugged in for long - overloads the data buss and will kick you out of overdrive -
but- no indication that affects the V6

I keep changing the settings on mine just to see what all it will do and if it helps me drive better :shock: , have the wire ran behind the knee panel and up to the guage itself all hidden. I got mine on sale , great deal and lets me know a lot more of whats happening before it is a real problem
