    Last couple of times I installed an AFR gauge, I just took the bung and got it welded on my exhaust by a muffler shop.

    The rest is simply running power and ground, and the air/fuel sensor has a harness that directly connects to your gauge.

    The job itself was easy, it was just getting the front OME Dakar leaf pack on both sides to line up with the mount to get the bolt through.

    Ratchet strap around the rear axle, with the hook anchored to the frame as an anchor; ratchet that thing up and it slowly pulls the axle forward so everything lines up.

    take both packs off at the same time
    Hold the axle in your lap.
    Put in the leaf and leave everything lose.
    Do the opposite for the other side
    Tighten everything.
    No alignment issues at all


    I never have to fight with the leafs to align them

    Still a pain in the dick to get a sawzall in there.

    I will say the AAL's on the 08 were way easier to install. On my 04 I had to remove the whole packs to install them, didnt have to on the 08.

    I need to take my leaf packs off to replace the front bushing; you should knock it out for me while I go take a shit.

    I agree to that its easy to direct wire but wiring up to the lights, dimmer and tach signal that may require a bit more work.

    Its similar. The one I'm installing is a Innovate Motorsports 3892 PSB-1 it just has additional functions like rpm light that comes on at a set rpm to indicate shifting and such, not really needed but since I have it would be nice to wire it up with everything else.
    https://www.innovatemotorsports.com/products/psb1.php
    I have 5 wires that come out of mine.
    Red - Power ( going to use a power source from the fuse box with a spliced in wire like this: Just need to know which location will be best to tie this intos-l1600.jpg
    Black - Ground (ground to chasse directly?)
    White - Ground/ headlight on wire (for automatic dimmer to turn on) Not sure where is connection would be made
    Yellow - This will go to my FIC-6
    Purple - Tach signal/ RPM Not sure where is connection would be made
