Jeff-

I have had digital dashes and like them. I used Dakota Digital in the Blazer and the Riv. They look great and work well. Also their cruise control works well also.

I wish it did not have so many modules but that is what makes it flexible

I used the VHX version in my wifes LS swapped FJ40. Having the different modules really helped on packaging and space.

How did you set up your battery connections? Does your ground wire end back there or head up front?

Thank you.

Thank you.

Iíve alway welded in a lug in the back of the car to ground to. I know all the instructions say ground to the block, but I have never had an issue.

I have been adding a battery disconnect in the trunk on the negative side of the battery. Makes it easy to kill the power.

Those are probably communication wires for the BIMs and twisting cuts down on interference.

Yes the CAN wires, wheel speed wires and temp sensors wire are twisted pairs. It cuts down on interference.
