I have not posted for awhile. After reading the post regarding the guages I thought I would post a few pictures of my new gauges and my new buddy that rides on my hood.
The gauges are mounted in a carbon fiber housing and they are a vacuum guage and a transmission tempature guage. A vacuum guage can improve your mileage if you use it as a reminder to keep your foot out of it. They are both digital and are lit either bright or dim the same as the other guages in the dash. I went with the digital because many of the other informational displays in the Commander are also digital.
Now, as for the guy on the hood. He does absolutely nothing except starting conversations. He is the mascot for my old jeep clup in Sacramento, "The Seirra Ridgeriders" I also have had one for a long time on my TJ. The only hard part about mounting him is drilling a hole in the hood of the Commander.
I am sure someone will not like it, but 'Hey, its a Jeep" that is also what I say when I am in some precarious offroad situation and someone asks me why I four wheel in a Commander.
Sorry for the long post.
