    Some lift, some armor, some scratches..
    I got the Ultraguage like 2 weeks ago and had it temporarily sitting on top of the steering column but wanted a better spot to mount it. I decided to utilize the blank on my dash where the "airbag key" goes on other yr Tacomas.

    I used a Dremel to cut the suction cup mount UG provided right at the square "clip" portion; then drilled into the blank and squared it off. The square back of the "clip" fit into the hole I made perfectly tight as hell. I'm really happy with the end result!! Check it out VVVVV

    I like it
    This truck is a work truck - not a lot of fancy mod's here, but it's getting the job done!
    ^^ I like this ^^

    I just ordered mine and expect to see it here Wed or Thurs this week... I like your mount position - would like some pics of the mount (behind the gauge - from both sides)

    My big question on your mount location is how it affects airflow from vents in center.

    No but I've seen the add-a-fuse things on here before and figured I give that a shot, but what plug would I put it for it to turn on/off with the ignition? I've done the cig lighter always on mod so I'd rather not wire it in with that.

    That is a bit misleading though because "white" is somewhat subjective. Sunlight at noon is up around 5500K so a 6000k bulb will look pretty "white" with a hint of blue.
    4300k on the other hand may appear less "white" (slightly more yellow) but gives the most lumens (lumens=brightness) 4300k is about 10% brighter than its 6000k counterpart.
    If you want light performance, go 4300k. If you want a whiter appearance that you cant see because you are the one driving, go with 6000k.

    6000K 55watts are Great!!! A lot brighter than the 35 watts or regular halogens...

    I actually prefer my 4300k 55w HIDs better then the 6000k. A blend of the two is great tho.
