    new ultra-gauge setup..

    [​IMG]

    i am liking the new version of UG. you're able to now have repeating gauges on every screen. i now have MPH and RPM on all 7 screens. old version only allowed you to use the gauge once. old version had 3 screens, new has 7. plus they added some new gauges as well.

    currently i have my distance calibrated to .921
    285/70/17, 4.56 gears, manual

    i'm still reading a little high on the UG versus GPS speed, but i'd rather have it that way than the other way around.

    Nice. That's where I have my scan gauge mounted.
    So you can adjust for gearing and tires to correct your speedo? That's a nice feature!

    you can correct the distance calibration...take a GPS, reset trip on both, run some distance and set the distance calibration to actual

    this will adjust your speed, distance and MPG (anything distance dependent) to actual.

    autos don't have as much of an issue with gears as their speed/distance is read off the ABS sensor/at the wheels versus manual is taken off the tcase

    but with the auto you can compensate for your tire size change and have a proper speed, distance, mpg, etc.

    It doesn't correct the speedo on the dash. You can just calibrate the speed reading on the Ultragauge itself.

    correct...the dash will still be off but the UG will have the correct values..

    i have been using my UG as my speedo for a while now..

    so much that when i drive kayla's truck i'm looking around for my UG to see how fast i'm going :D

    I was messing around with my UG one time trying to reset the trip and such and I accidentally reset everything and had to drive an hour home on the interstate without it set right and I pretty much had to guess what speed I was going because I was so used to just looking at my UG. haha Luckily I had a rough idea of where I had a rough idea of where the speedo was when I was really doing 75. I pretty much don't look at my dash anymore, just the UG (which is in about the same place as yours).

    one of these days i may look into that...UG does the job for now... i know of a few other ways i'd rather spend $200 right now :D

    i think i'll need to settle on a tire size at least before i calibrate anything with the speedo. probably stay with 305s and 295s (34s), but i'll need to get a set of road and off-road tires...not sure i want to go up to 35s and deal with the extra clearancing issues..

    Yeah, like Bob said, I don't quite think it is worth the $200. At least not for me.

    In your case though the tranny gears should affect it since it reads after the tranny, but I have no idea how you are setup now with your AWD Tcase. haha Did the new trans or tcase has a speedo output that your ECU can read or what?

    Audio upgrade:

    Front-Polk Audio - 6-1/2" Component Speakers with Polymer-/Mica-Composite Cones
    Rear-Polk Audio - 6-1/2" Coaxial Vehicle Speakers with Bilaminate Polymer-Composite Cones

    Additional items:
    3/4" MDF for front 6 1/2" mounts
    #8x3/4" self drilling screws
    1/4" washers
    jig saw
    drill w/ assortment of bits
    assortment of common tools

    new sounds
    [​IMG]

    to save some $$, i went ahead and picked up some MDF to create my own mounts instead of going through tacotunes.

    prep...take door panels off...see other thread on that

    the stock wiring comes from the stereo to the tweeter where it takes the highs and sends the rest to the woofer. so i just took the wires coming from the stereo and cut them at the first connection closest to the tweeter..
    4949D7D4-02DE-4EF8-9142-744439A2A299-557_23ee92dbe964a2eee3e3bafe9b7f3fef0c1d5e5b.jpg

    threw on some connectors that will go into the crossover
    80B4D223-87FF-44A0-9FD1-D1302239D3D5-557_c8534427cd5120652e42f53da2b2c6f8d3f0c0e8.jpg

    for the tweeters i re-used the factory mounts...require you to cut out the old tweeter. you will not save the factory tweeter so it will get messed up in this process :laugh: the main fabric of the tweeter can be cut with some extra fabric left that will give the new tweeters a tight place to rest in. using some rtv i put some adhesive around the old fabric and slid the new tweeter into the hole i created.
    58B80350-73F3-4859-B8F7-A7A279E0EF77-557_2a86b056d2a2b5a2b0247027d3adac4c126a34b8.jpg

    and i just noticed that i put that tweeter mount in upside down :D the tabs go into slots which i didn't notice apparently until the second door install. oops

    so next step is to get the woofers installed..

    take the stock mounts/speakers and trace out on the MDF the outline. using the mounts provided with the speakers, trace out the cutout needed for the speakers. and cut...you now have mounts :D

    i used a step down bit to create enough of a countersink to re-use the factory bolts used to secure the mounts. used 1/4" washers on the bolts in securing the mounts.

    test fit
    DFE857A1-A3E9-46F4-B6A5-5E0BB5A0A1EE-557_ca05cbd80f02ce3ae5d070abbeac5d86caf3b082.jpg

    then threw a bit of flat on the mounts so it'll be less noticed behind the door panel. using the self tapping screws i mounted the speakers.
    F1529911-3EEF-4D7A-82ED-83111DCB6096-557_da905f951b87fe5b38c5f4a75ea9559c041dada2.jpg

    to mount the crossover i threw some velcro on the back and mounted it to the backside of the panel
    6B83BC0E-ED1A-4CD1-961A-8372F77B534D-557_f3f4b0351910220c4ce28a0364edf452a5917b40.jpg
    this allows me to take the crossover off easily when taking off the panel

    for the rears i was able to mount the speakers using the mounts provided by Polk using some more self tapping screws
    19116450-357E-4AAF-9E6A-5BA61229F474-557_9d81c62d91302c57f7416775426735dc8a02530f.jpg

    used wire harnesses from best buy for the wire connections
