    No complaints. Little softer than the 886s which means corners get a little tipsy but bumps aren't as bumpy.

    Did you do your lights yourself?

    Weekend projects:

    Transmission fluid flush (recently broke 100k)
    Diff fluid flush
    Diff breather mod
    Oil change

    Hopefully this will get rid of some foreboding squeaks back there...

    Installed my new UltraGauge. I like having all that data on hand.

    I also decided to put my stock wheels and tires on between wheeling trips. This should save me a bit of money in gas and lengthen the life of my offroading tires.

    There is a white plug under your dash on the drivers side (where the techs plug in there CEL code reader). Yours probably won't have as many wires as me, since most of what you see in the picture is from my keyless entry/remote start.

    Just the plug it came with. I ended up getting both the horizontal and vertical mounts since I didn't know how big they were and where I would end up mounting it, but ended up using the horizontal one with it mounted upside down. Just had to flip the snap on clip that holds the gauge

    Viper. I got the one with the two-way remote. I think it needs a new battery though. After a couple years using it, the charge only lasts a couple days now. Had to start using the backup remote that's only one-way. Other than that I really like it.

    I don't. Especially since I was lucky enough to have a friend who used to install them professionally that did mine for $100. They should have prices on their website though.
