Ok, I was bored one day and took out my non-functioning clinometer and altimeter and relocated my rancho controller to the "pod".

I had to resize the photo so I hope it turns out ok.

If you have noticed the gauges are on 0 then you probably guessed that it's not finished <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0"> But I will post the complete photos and a short write up soon....need to figure out what kind of shock mounts to go with in front still...I like the hoop idea and the ford mounts, but I haven't settled on what to use....I can say one thing though, I like the way Ranchos are valved. They are valved to dampen stiff on the down-stroke so guys like me running stiffer than stock lift spings don't get kidney damage in stead of a "normal" shock that dampens hard on the up-stroke as well as the down-stroke...but I haven't tried bilstiens either <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

How do those things connect to the widjet that attacehd where the know is? I guess it's either air or cable operated, but I've never been clear on that...</font>

It's air operated. The little red button actuates the compressor and the two black thingies are the release valves so you can adjust the pressure between the front and rear.

looks sweet and through my experiance those gauges that you pulled are useless anyway.

No pics, but for those without the inclinometer, it also works very nicely in a 1st gen 4runner right on the center console between the shifter and the change pit. Just drill out two holes exactly the same as the dials; both will fit side-by-side. Actually, I put the compressor and releases inside the change pit facing forward. But damn, your idea rocks!!!

How much did you guys pay for the controller and shocks?? Where did you find they were the cheapest?

Its for a 86 4runner, no lift, IFS, and I dont need the seperate front and rear controller (unless theres no big difference in the price). Thanks, Tom
