Re: tach ?

The way my truck is wired is all the interior lights run anytime the truck is running. Haven't had any problems yet and I'm running a triple pod as well as the factory setup.

Re: tach ?

just pop the front area of the dash open and use a power tester (screw driver looking thing that has a wire that you ground then you stick the end of the thing onto a wire if it lights up its a hot wire) and find the wires that are only hot when the lights are on. Then you can use that wire to powre your tach. Just use an inline fuse at least 18 inches or more close to the tach.

Re: tach ?

thats light should last quite a while maybe even longer than the tach itself.
