    Yeah I don't think machining enclosures would be very cost effective either :/ the boss man said no to my idea.

    can you get a remote sensor for the thermocouple to measure outside temp? Or move the one that is on your board? My truck did not come with the factory temp and I would love to have that function as well. I like your mounting solution in the stock location, any luck with a button for it? I have a camper I use on my truck and this would be perfect to help me level the truck before I stop for the night!! And it is just cool to have while offroading. I have not seen the price for these yet. What are they going for?

    Just found the price on your website. I feel $100 for this unit is a fair price, I'd say a really good price, but I don't want you upping it before I buy one, hehe. You have put a lot of work into this! Very impressive!

    Can anyone post a picture of one mounted/installed on their trucks? I'd totally be interested in one, but without a case for it I have no idea how I'd set it up in my truck.

    I've had a couple of requests for external temp but I haven't looked into it yet. It's on my list if things to investigate!

    I'd love to see a daylight picture, but that looks pretty good and gives me some ideas!

    I've got a 2012 with sunglasses holders in the roof console and will be mounting mine in there. I can flip it up when not in use and then flip it open when we're on the trail.

    I haven't made a faceplate for it yet. It's a little rough around the edges.... But it was a lot of cutting and imagination to get it in there

    I've got a switch panel going in there, so that wouldn't work for me. Dash real estate is so hard to come by!

    Congratulations on getting this up for sale finally OP.

    Unfortunately, I've decided to go a different route for my .

    Good luck with your sales. I hope you find a lot of people willing to buy your product... I don't think there is a better stand alone offroad gauge out there (I simply wanted something that was all-in-one to minimize dash clutter).

    I don't think so. There are a bunch of vendors that do it. You should be good to go.
