I'm going to wait and do the install after I move in my new garage. I've got a couple mods planned then...I need to change the oil anyway, so I'm going to install the gauges and sender when I change the oil. I'm also going to install my fogs and I think while I have the front end open, I'm going to diagnose my funny noise (if it's not the belly pan) and install a snub mount.
