Default ultra gauge... cheaper then scangauge

http://ultra-gauge.com


does anyone know anything about this item? i just saw it advertised, and it shows 6 gauges instead of the 4 scangauge does, it also reads, and clears check engine codes, it says regularly $200, but on sale for $39.95 after $9 mail in rebate... is this too good to be true??

me too, but it does the same thing, but it shows more info, i just wonder if it keeps the same info that the SG's do where you can check the MPG on the tank, or MPG's on the previous day

It's certainly easier to read and not that much bigger. I have an Actron scanner myself but it's a little clunky to mount to the dash for full time diagnostic stuff.

They probably have it on sale to try and get their foot in the door since Actron and Scangauge have a corner on the market.

lol Rob my hero

instead of 170$+shipping for scangauge, i'm now considering this one.

do you know if i'd have to pay customs charges to ship it here with usps priority?


there's one thing that troubles me: how retarded is that company that you'd have to send them back a mail in rebate if they are the ones that manufacture and sell the item to you by mail in the first place?

They are hoping you won't bother or it gets lost in the mail.

I got screwed by mail-ins twice, i don't trust them anymore.

Even at 50$, it's still 120$ cheaper than a scangauge!

i'm not sure, but i ordered a couple, gonna use one as a ginea pig in the ranger to see if its worth it, and probally give the other one to my parents for their trailblazer, and if it works good enough i might order another if its at the same price for use in their colorado

Rob, there might be a problem.

Unless you plan to buy a 2.4l engine
