You have a TIG now, a AWIC hidden in the cowl would be sweet and let you run a standard direction manifold.

It would also allow you to run the heat exchanger anywhere you wanted.

Like, say, the tailgate.

Sure makes things a lot easier thats for sure.

I actually just got another idea. Goona look into taking the stock cluster out of the case and cutting a housing for it

Why not digital? I mean if you plan as much power as you do to the wheels haha, I'm sure the OEM gauges will slip

its 1020 erw, same material as regularDOM, its just not drown over a madrel for tolerances. Yeild 55250, tensile 64860. but im using .140 wall

If i take a peice of my tube 1.66OD x .140 wall, It would hold 43,359 lbs
A peice of A513 Typ 5 DOM in 1.75OD x .120 wall would hold 43,015, or more. I dont have a cert for it, just going by spec. Saving a few pounds in weight wasnt worth spending 3-5x more in material to me.
