All I need now is that Putco Lower Grill Insert and an Air Pump!
What kind of Dash Cam did you get? I'm looking at one for me and my wife and was curious as to what route you went with.

Thanks

That reminded me of a movie quote "...The ashtray, the paddle game, and the remote control, and that’s all I need. And these matches. ..." :LOL:

I'm pretty sure there is no end to what we "need" for our Rangers.😆
The Jerk was a hilarious movie!

Ya know, I think that's the best part about all this.....going back and forth with Al . Somehow deep down I know he's going to cave in (like you did) and get one. Then again I kind of hope he doesn't because this is entertaining! :LOL::LOL::LOL:

Well we shall see I never thought Terry would cave either. In the meantime I'll wait patiently and continue my hard work and subliminal signals. 😜

Most have IR for nighttime recording. Just read the reviews because the really cheap ones are grainy. I don't have one yet but have been looking at a few different ones. This one looks pretty good and also has good. reviews.

These I've heard are really good but more expensive.

Yes. Some better than others but you should be able to easily see what happened in accident at night with most.

My personal experience with dash cams. I was walking my dog at the park and he was attacked by a dog that wasn't on a leash, I was bit. My dash cam got his license plate and I was able to find him. Would have had to pay a couple thousand in medical and vet bills if I wouldn't have been able to identify him through his LP. Worth every penny.

I have been using GRDIAN brand dashcams for 5+ years and they are still going strong. Night vision is good too

Yup, sure can. Tune installed the day I got it. You don't get the warranty if you install yourself.

FYI, I also have Livernois. FPP tune feels like it's in between the Livernois tow and performance tune as far as power. Shifting seems more refined than stock but not nearly as aggressive as Livernois. The reason I got it is for a bit more power with no restrictions for towing (well, that I know of).

So far, l like it best.
I read that you can't tow with the ford tune?

The literature I've seen so far says high octane fuel only. No other restrictions mentioned.

Can you share your source?

I have been through two cameras previously.
Both $50 units to learn on.

What did I learn?
In the Phoenix Arizona Summer, living on the windshield when it is 117 degrees outside your car and probably 150 or more inside, some cameras will absolutely melt and deform. Hoping this one doesn't.

Would it help to get the vent covers an leave the windows cracked? When I lived in Fla I put a windshield shade in an covered the dash an steering wheel with a beach towel. it seemed to help keep the a/c vents from getting so hot I was home before the a/c got cold.
