It works for almost any vehicle 96+. Our trucks have 38 gauges

Have you guys seen the rear view mirror mounts for the scangauge? They're pretty sweet.

Why buy a mount, when the UG comes with a mount that can be maneuvered into that same spot for free?

Got mine mounted up tonight and all the gauges set to read what I want it to! Love having 3 pages of gauges to quick scroll through.

How many actual params could one monitor with a 99 truck or a Ranger? Just curious.
I do believe that was me. It works great with my 99 3.slow. I have it mounted up in the corner like this with the stock mount..

I love it. Its great. It s actually helped me increase my MPGs a little bit because of the instant MPG function. I really only use the first page, but the other nice to look at every once in a while. I think my favorite part though is the trouble code reader, and the fact that it alerts you to trouble codes and pending trouble codes, and can turn off the cel. My only complaint is that or trucks dont have a tranny temp function, but thats easily fixed. Overall, I give the UG two thumbs up!!

Haha, it's clean though. Everyone always has that same initial reaction. Lol

Just bend the mount around the ranger text, mine's kinda coiled up behind the mirror.

for calibration see PDF:

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/14942986/calibration.pdf

Since you have tires that are WAY bigger than stock, you will need to calibrate distance. basically go a set distance and enter it into the UG. Also to calibrate MPGs its as simple as filling up and using that tank of gas and then filling back up and entering what it took to full it back up (my calibration was very close out of the box but im pretty much stock with 31s)

If you have a GPS, use that to calibrate the distance, it's the easiest way.

I'm glad I found this thread. I'd been debating the ScanGauge II but the price was a turn-off. This is a better value. I just ordered one for my 2007 XLT.

yes, the only thing is. the company doesn't have it set up for L/100kms. it's only in miles. however, when i purchased mine, he said they were working on it and if i wanted to be a "metric gerbil" to let him know. and we could work something out. however, i had just received it and wasn't about to send it back.


i do have a question though, if someone can convert it for me. mine is telling me that i'm getting 17-18mpg as an average. i'm getting 500 kms out of a tank. is this accurate? i also haven't calibrated it for distance w/a GPS yet.
