    Lost track many, many mods ago.
    I went on the ultragauge website and they are selling them for $69. I wanted to know if all you guys who got them in that group buy are liking them? Would you guys recommend getting it, is it worth it? Viable upgrade?

    So far I love mine. It has given me no problems. The only thing you need to check is, if you have abs I think the ultragauge disables it. I not 100% sure though because my truck doesn't have abs.

    It just stopped working.

    But perhaps it's not its fault. It's been -26ºF in Alaska where I live for the past two days :eek:, and I'm hoping it'll come around and wake up in the spring. But I think I killed it.

    Try unplugging it and plugging it back it. I got in my truck one day and mine wouldn't come on so I did this and it went back to work.

    You can probably earn back the money for what it costs to purchase an Ultragauge just by the gas you save once you fine tune your driving habits. At least that's how I feel about mine...

    It's on my Christmas list (being it's frivolous spending and not a necessity, I can't bring myself to buy it for myself as there's too many things more important).
