Why not just tape a level to the dashboard?

Oh, my bad. I guess looking for an easier method rather then paying for a smaller level is too hard for some.

beacuse it wouldnt give an accurate messurement, your better off taping 2 strings with a weight on them on the celing, then getting 2 protractors and fabbing up a bracket lol

mine was kinda neat, knowing i've been near 40 sideways.. but its more by feel weather the truck is going to go or not.

True, I see your point, as a level isn't in that curvature shape.

I still think inclinometers are pretty useless. Just another distraction when you're off the road I guess.....

most of the time your tipped over that much your mind is on other things anyways.. that and when your moving its useless because it bounces around so you need to stop..
