You can get thermostats with different temperature ratings if you really want, but thats a very common/standard range. I think the one installed in mine is one step cooler (like 5 degrees less), but you're plenty fine like that.

btw, dont forget to add a few more codes to your scangauge (in the xguage)

MAF (Mass Air Flow)
TXD: 07E00110
RXF: 044145100000
RXD: 2810
MTH: 000100010000

Trans Temp
TXD: 686AF101B4
RXF: 044105B40000
RXD: 2808
MTH: 00090005FFD8

Horsepower
TXD: 00
RXF: 40 00 80 00 00 00
RXD: 00 00
MTH: 00 0A 00 17 00 00

Dont know of any others that work for us 1st gens.

You can also add in some of the trip items as well (like avg mpg, miles remaining in tank, gals remaining in tank, etc)


As for the Hi-lift, it has many potential applications.
First, the obvious, lifting your vehicle for repairs or to build up the road to get unstuck (lifting from a slider, with a wheel wrap, or to an aftermarket bumper or hitch). Then there's using it as a come along. Also can use it to lift the truck to help push it out of a hole. The most impartant thing with it is to be careful, as it really isn't the most stable platform for lifting and gotta watch out for that handle. Many people have gotten seriously hurt by using one. Never put any of your body under a vehicle held up only be a hilift. You can find lots of videos at hilifts channel on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/user/hiliftjacks

no. Just plug it in to the OBDII connector under your parking brake. Use the included velcro to stick it anywhere you like. It fits pretty decent under your rpm gauge in the dash, although it does cover up a few lights.

Drain plug is 14 MM. Hi lift jack has a switch to go up or down. But you need a bumper that can be used with a hi lift jack! Like ARB front bumper has a space for a hi lift one on rt. and one on left side. a lot of after market bumpers are made to be used with a hi lift jack!! or you can in your tow resever hitch and lift the whole ass of your taco up!!. As for your gauge read the manual. Good luck!!
