    The 2nd Gen altimeter came in 89-96 Toyota surfs (4runners) and does anyone know if you can put one in a first gen TACO?
    I think there pretty badass, and the only wiring is for lighting.
    the main issue would be where and how to mount it.

    you can find inclinometers and such for a lot cheaper than what youre probably going to pay for one of those

    i tried to buy one on ebay 3 or so years ago and every time the bid went over $100

    You don't need a inclinometer unless you want it for the *coolness* factor.

    To FEEL the terrain and the tippiness of your vehicle - you're FAR better off going by your ASS METER (gut feeling) than using any inclinometer.

    The part that I think is cool is the altimeter. I always loved that in my moms old 87 4 runner
