Hum, that's a good idea using the Exploder roof racks! Looks like you're making progress.

bumpncarstereo- it was here that you read it. i wrote it. very easy to do and well worth it for me.

highroller & mark- nice sarcasm.


the name is of my company. we do custom creations for hot rods and engine work on most cars. the truck for the most part is our company hauler. we are moving rather soon and have finished up our customers projects and moved our attention to the ranger for the next month. lots of upgrades from being just a daily driver to a very nice "KUSTUM".

the small stock mirror are garbage. that mirror allows me to see both blind spots on the side of the truck and the whole rear window.

the reason they are mounted there is because i already have pull handles and switches mounted to be pillars. they actually fit in rather well. i have a trans temp, oil pressure, A/F ratio and true battery voltage gauges going in. all of those gauges are focused on off roading. i have a LOT of other electronics in the truck when i go off roading that this was one of the last places i could mount these. ill try to get some better pics of it, probably from the drivers seat.

also, the gauges are pointed at a 45 degree angle, facing the driver.
