When using that shifter, how will you know the gear you have chosen?

Photos showing installed console in NAS 110s. We installed a footer to support the back of the console to the seat box. IT is a bit intrusive into the second row, but acceptable evil.

BTW - I am across the street from the red rig. What is Tommy doing to it?

So with the motor / trans and this little controller you posted it can do cruise control?

Where can I find more info on that device you posted please?

Works great in a 110. The flip/fold seats still work and all.

Now what is that?
That is a generic CAN bus ECU that is programmable. I can display what ever is available from the engine/trans. Program the buttons to control various things.

Hell I can't get her to drive it period. "The steering wheel is on the wrong side, and it has a weird transmission"

Pick one

It will keep me out of the strip club
It will keep me out of the bar
The clutch is causing problems with my Leg, knee, back
It will keep me out of the house and out of your way

I am sure we can come up with more if you need them

Dave,
Need new ones. Wife has her PhD in Psychology - I can't out think her on anymore excuses (not that I ever could in the first place). All those would/did work about $15K ago.

Fu*&ing Defender addict.

O and throwing on a BullyDog system for another 30HP+ not to mention less heat through the cab and possibly being able to carry on a conversation in the soft top without all the noise from the engine/drive train.
