The project to get the '96 ready for towing duty (small, 'CASITA' fiberglass camper trailer) is going pretty good... the front axle has been serviced 100%, the transmission and transfer case serviced, all seven flexible brake lines replaced (new pads are in the garage ready to be installed), and the S/C has been installed (hey, it's a whole new truck).

Being paranoid about operating temperatures (towing & supercharger), I bought the Scangauge II and installed it on the center console by using a sturdy little camera tripod head that I 'modified' for its new assignment as Scangauge holder. I am very happy with the results... to me, it's a good compromise of convenience and visibility. Now, if I can just decide exactly what "gauges" I want to look at (besides the coolant temperature, of course!)...

Great use of the camera mount; good thinking. It looks like there would be enough room for the transfer case shifter to get to the low position.

As I sometimes use my Scangauge on other vehicles (to diagnose CEL lights on buddy's vehicles etc.), I bought an extra cable. It was always a bummer to remove the cable and then have to reroute it later. I think the extra cable is $20 or so.

Your location will also cut down/eliminate the reflection in the windshield that I get from mounting it on top of the steering column (I've thought about attaching a shade -- like the bill of a baseball cap -- to the top of the Scangauge to cut down on this reflection).
