    By far one of my best online finds yet. I’m building a home theatre and found these in-wall Snell Acoustics speakers on Facebook for $100. Brand new, only installed to test fit.

    I didn’t realize what I had till I got home and realized they retailed for $1,100 each. What’s even crazier is I looked up the name and address on the 2003 shipping label and it turns out it belonged to a famous Percussionist, and the address led to a $14.5 million dollar mansion in the Hollywood hills.

    It’s all in a TIG welded aluminum enclosure too. Very well made.

    Poking away at little stuff. Cut and bent the crawl box shifter so grabbing 2nd gear doesn't pop the case into neutral. Changed the oil in both cases.

    Did some math and have a guess to why I am still puking hydraulic fluid, my ram is 14oz or so of displacement and my new resi is like 24 oz so fill level matters quite a bit.

    I used the following (yeah, I know - pricey but gift card balance and reward points lol) -
    https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JQNRTDI

    https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B0012TRIY4/

    It is stable but then again I'm not pounding over rocks with 35s so :notsure:

    I have the base bolted to the pop-out piece. If secured to the dash more permanently, I bet it would stand up to any trail abuse.

    Giving myself a crash-course on UltraGauge/ScanGauge.

    UltraGauge has audible alarms. That's the one feature I can find that I'd miss from the ScanGauge II.

    The permanently-attached cord on the UG is a bummer compared to SG's detachable/relocatable cord.

    I found that there's a ScanGauge III listed now. I haven't seen any mention of it on the forums here: https://www.scangauge.com/products/productsscangauge-iii/

    It doesn't look appealing to me, though--the UI looks cluttered and unpleasant to use, more complexity means more chances for bugs, and it's $250.

    I use one of these stuck to the clock blank. Probably not as sturdy as a RAM mount, but super convenient. It holds up to moderately washboarded dirt roads.

    I already broke the little blank where that RAM is by attaching a magic mount to it lol. The adhesive held up better than the plastic tabs

    Sorry for the confusion lol. Such as the fenders from a 5 lug would be too small for a 6 lug, would the same be applicable to axle widths?

    Does your truck have a clock?

    The clock blank (when no clock was equipped) is molded into the trim piece. Good and sturdy. If you have a clock then swapping the trim piece would get you a decent mounting spot.

    Weird. Usually you want to avoid metal at all costs when dealing with acoustics.

    Anyone know of a writeup for a manual brake proportioning valve?

    I'm sure it's not that hard but want to make sure I know what I need to get up front.

    You're honestly best going through the top of the dash for anything of heft
