Icon4 aftermarket gauge holder

i remember seeing somwhere that i can purchase an upper left window frame
gauge holder ( the plastic piece just below the grab handle )

i am looking to install an aftermarket alternator output and oil pressure gauge
( i now intend to monitor the alternator output volts and oil pressure manually )

the same way i did in my old cj7`s

( screw this electronic monitoring crap )

good question

i had seen a ranger with both,, and it looked very good
i have given up on relying on elecronic monitoring crap
just because a lights comes on in the dash ,, does not tell me anything

i like mechanical/electric gauges ,, i can look over visually check to see what the gauge is showing

volts / oil pressure / coolant temperature / fuel rail pressure etc

If you know what your doing you can normally get this information from the computer electronically.

You can use paypal to generate a "secure card". A one time use or multiple use credit card number that you can use anywhere online just like a credit card.
