*UPDATE*

I got Trans temp, fluid level, and a few trip guages going... they had a lil update on their site I think... I didn't know we had to use FORD CAN, I thought that meant Canadian...lol

I'm averaging 22-23mpg and Trans temp was at its highest ~167F... speaking of the trans temp... when does it start getting too hot that it can damage stuff??? 220F?

Just for an avg, I'm at about 150-165 driving normally. Offroading can go all the way up to 200-220, I shut down after 220, thats way too hot IMO. Even when i tow the hottest i see around town is 180...I haven't seen over 180 in over a year.

Damn you! I have the TFT but for some reason it wont register. Fluid level would be nice but thats ford specific. I want the Oil change % but it wont work for me.

So, how much does one of these things run? Where is the cheapest place to pick one up? On the mph, how does it read that? Will it read correctly if you have bigger tires?

I think stuffforyourranger.com has them for 160 shipped. You can adjust the speedo on the scangauge for bigger tires, I have mine changed 8% for my 32s

Well I broke down and ordered myself a X-mas gift. What kind of mount does it come with if any if you didn't order it with the mirror mount? I didn't want the mirror mount so looking at the locations in the many threads on where to mount it. 07Sport I will probably be hitting you up through PMs when it gets here for more information.

ETA: I ordered from Underdog-Performance got to support those who support us....
