Jeep Trailguide install on the cheap
I really liked the way the Trailguide setup looks and performs in the TJ.
However I could never bring myself to spend 800 dollars for a simple GPS and mount.
So I went to EBay and bought a Garmin Quest for $190. Factory refurbished with a full one year warranty. The Trailguide comes with the QuestII but the only difference between them is that the QuestII has a little more memory then the regular Quest. The Quest come with 115 meg of onboard memory and can hold more maps then you drive in a day or 2. I can hold the state I live in (Nebraska) and all the surrounding states with memory left over. So to me the QuestII is really not worth the extra money.
This week I'd like to talk about using a Digital Multimeter (DMM). With engine management systems being electronic it is one of the most powerful and versatile tools at your command.

Ham and Jeepin
Every now and again, someone asks me about ham radio and how it works for four wheeling. So, I thought I would take some time and write down a few comments. This will save me from having to retype the same information time and time again and it will also allow me to provide a constant response and not leave any important parts out. I think I will do this one in the form of a FAQ since so many of the questions are repeatedly asked. So here goes. (Note: For basic information about obtaining a ham radio license, please stop by www.arrl.org for information
Hands Free Phone
For the last two years I had been driving with my cell phone hung from an overhead strap, using the case hook to hold it in place. I plugged an DC adapter into the phone and cigarette lighter. When I needed to use the phone, I took it down from the storage location and did so.
