OBD II Gauges

Anyone running OBD II Gauges. While pricey, it makes a lot of sense to me to be able to see the information going through the OBD II unit. I'd like to put in some 2 1/16 gauges instead of that TV sized scan gauge. I've tried contacting the two companies I could find that makes them, Aeroforce and PLX, but they don't seem to be too interested in answering any of my questions. Anyone running these or others?

Thanks, I really like this gauge, but I had a few questions for them and have emailed them a couple of times now with no reply. I don't like doing business with folk I can't call if I get stuck or have a problem with something. It looks like Autometer and PLX also make some OBD II gauges. I've emailed PLX with no reply either and Autometer's site is a travesty for anyone wanting anything more than a picture. Was wondering if anyone had more contact info especially on Aeroforce.

Did you look at the Aeroforce forums? I think the whole company is just a couple guys. The one answers posts several times a week.

Yep, the forum is about the only real answers from Aeroforce.

I am running the Aeroforce gauge myself, and had to get the majority of info from whats available on the net. I think someone posted a nice guide to what features are available for the JK platform.
There is a whole host of info available through the OBD II port for sure.
I also bought a scanner online that lets me grab freeze data as well. Can never have enough toys....lol

It is a pretty decent gauge but the tech/ customer service side of the company is only so-so IMO. They do answer questions through the forum though.

It's funny. Just minutes after my last post, Bob from Aeroforce emailed me everything I wanted to know. Maybe one of these days I'll learn to be patient... Probably not. Anyhow, I just spent a whole bunch of money with them and am looking forward to putting them in. It's wild to think I could even go as far as tapping into differential and transfer case temperatures with three more add-ons.

I've been running the single aeroforce guage now for a year and I'm happy with its performance. I think you'll be glad you bought it. It's a shame that we don't really have hardly ANY gauges from the factory...

I use it all the time. It's a little deep in the menu but well worth it.
