Scangauge II

Well I ordered my ScanGauge II from Wayne and got it today. I'm going to install it tomorrow when I get home from work. Then I'm going to take a trip down to Palm Springs on Sunday to take a mini vacation and pick up something huge for my truck!

Nice! I got mine like a week ago and love it. I think I might get a Blendmount soon as well, is the cable long enough to reach all the way up there or do you need a extension?

I know walmart has some of those...atleast around here, and advanced auto but you can get those off autoanything.com....shouldnt pay more then 40 if not much lower if i remember correctly that is. They are just pop up anchor point stake mounts.

Scangauge II with Blend Mount.

Well got the Scangauge II mounted with the Blend mount as well. Very good product. Haven't driven with it yet but I know I will get some good use out of it. For those of you that are wondering there is a 7ft cord included with all the proper mounting hardware and tools that comes with the Blend Mount kit. So no need to worry about buying an extra cord.

This is where you plug in the extended cord from the scangauge II and then the other end to the OBD II port cable.

I love the height of your truck

I know you said you got the Fabtech Ultimate 5.5 lift from 4wheelparts and had them install it. I looked on there site and only found a 3in fabtech lift

Is that because I have a edge with t-bars and you dont?

Yea it's because you have a torsion font suspension and that's only what they make for it. You can probably go with an RCD 6" lift and just as good as the fabtech if not better because they use better shocks but I don't know if the RCD lift will work with torsion front end. I'm pretty sure it will. I had 4wheelparts install it cuz I didn't want to **** my truck up and they can do everything there and I would be able to get somewhat of a warranty. They are a little pricey but they do a good job. That's where I'm going to go to get my rear end re-geared in the near future.

The RCD lift is for torsion bar trucks and its a 5". It uses coilovers so it will be a better ride all around.

I've got 'em too...there's even ones that say 'Ford Racing' on them too. Only cost like $20 a pair...i got mine on sale for $15 a pair. JcWhitney, Summit, Jegs, eBay, local auto parts stores, wal mart, sporting goods stores all should have them. I think the most popular brand is 'Bully'.
