    Welcome, nickels, to the forum and congratulations on your purchase. That's a mighty fine looking Mirage. I'm certain you will enjoy it. I love mine.

    I am going to present myself with an Ultra Gauge for Christmas, but it is essentially the same as a Scangauge.

    That was me. I remember the username MetroMPG

    Also what are we running for real-time fuel monitoring? I see a $100 fuel scan gauge, a $250 all in scan gauge...

    Help haha
    I use OBDLink LX Bluetooth. Cheaper and pretty flexible.

    But a blast to drive.

    I didn't know Wranglers still got four speed transmissions. I thought four speeds went out in the 1980s.

    1000 pounds of armor?? What for?

    Was this on teamswift?? I have to say as spectacular as it sounds, I don't remember that story!

    There are a bunch of old teamswift members here, and geometroforum people of course.
