    I second that! It should be one of the most important things in your rig!

    Just be careful, some of the really cheap units are not reliable. Yours looks like it might be ok, can't see that well. The worst ones have plastic heads and no gauge. I've heard that those often do not work when called upon...

    I had to use mine (and Esteban's...and some other guys) at the 2001 Blazer-Fest. The pics are still on CK5 somewhere.
    When I got home I bought 2 more.

    I've got mine, but I don't have it mounted. I thought about putting one under the hood and one behind the seat, but so far just have the one behind the seat.

    One thing I like about my club is that they are required. I have one in each of my cars and trucks.
