I'm too tall for my truck. So my scan gauge is right on the column, and gives me easy fast input of data from the truck. Mostly speed and MPGs:




I don't understand why someone would put it on the rearview mirror. What a pain in the butt to read and super unsafe. Stick to the column, mang.

What about a set-up like the EDGE programmer in F-150s, on the dash to the left of the steering wheel, anything possible there you think?

Not the scangauge II but there is something somewhat similar that I've seen mounted by the steering wheel:

I like those aeroforce gauges. I might order a couple for my truck. I have a scangauge but I really don't have anywhere to mount it.
