Glad that it's home! Thanks for the pics. I really like the second row seats.

Hey Alex,

What is a Madman gauge? Is it an engine meter?

Yes- does all kinds of things- engine hours, coolant temp, oil temp, oil pressure, EGT. You can set limits with alarms and it does a digital display I didn't want a gauge cluster so this was a way I could get more gauges in my dash.

Very nice, and glad to see it's back in action. What's the story with the rear bumper pad missing?

Rear bumper pad is in my garage. Add it to the list of little things...

Ask Keith I think he had someone in Canada who he was able to source it from.

No worries, I was going to offer you one if you needed it.

I too would like to see some pictures of this madman in action.

Madman photos. No complaints about installing it so I believe it's pretty simple with the correct harnesses. Has an alarm for when limits are reached during operation. From looking at the instructions it seems pretty simple to deal with- not much different than my GPS watch really.

Decent display size. Opted to swap it out for a gauge in the cluster vs a pod or mounting it elsewhere. I like that it is front and center.

Alex that is very cool. Thanks for the explanation. By the way can you take some pics of your cage?

Haven't driven at night. I'll see what happens tonight. Seems to have a backlight during the day but not sure how it will look at night.

Anything in particular? My daughter LOVES the interior portion that comes down behind the front seats. Makes for an excellent grab rail to hoist herself up- along with the slider as a rail/step.

Just over all: the outside, a few interior shots, and roof. More specifically how much clearance between the roof and cage. Just want to see how an external cage look on an older 110. Stephen is placing an order soon and I have to decide which cage I want. Thanks a million!

Dave, if you are interested in the Madman gauge, I recommend using the US version from MGL Avionics.

Their cockpit singles come in a larger variety. They have several full small engine monitoring gauges. No need to get it from across the world!

Cage photos as requested. Some showing how close it sits to the truck. It's a tight fit.

Thanks Alex! That is tight. Think I just made up my mind.

Forrest, do you have a smooth top?

Alex, there is something about the detail in pic 7. I love it.

Paul I have a ribbed one, will be going with Camel Trophy cage. And I agree with you about the picture, it took years to get that patina. It makes me sick to know mine will end up looking too new.
