    I have a clinometer (shows pitch, roll and elevation) from my 86 4Runner and I'd like to mount it on the dash of my 02' Tacoma. My question is, has anyone done this? I'd like to see how it's going to look before I start drilling into my truck.

    I did a search and couldn't really find anything, maybe i'm looking in the wrong places?

    Either way, thanks guys!

    Here's a pic of the clinometer.

    I agree, but this is going in my Tacoma which is my DD not my wheeling rig, that's what the 4Runner is for.

    I had one in my 83 toyota pickup but i think in the new tacoma's it would block a lot if your vision.

    Yeah good point, I need to place it on the dash and see for sure.

    Ehh never a fan of apps

    Clinometer, Inclinometer, Altimeter you get the point.

    gradually replacing the bumper with hairy bondo ;-)
    I have one from my old 4WD Tercel wagon, pulled out before it was junked, but it's still sitting in a box somewhere (and no altimeter on that one.)

    Yeah I like the truck and 4Runner ones better but I already have one.

    Yeah not really a fan of those, I like the look of the 80's 4x4 ones.
