Hi everyone.
I would like to install an iclinometer in my 2005 Exterra.
I'm looking for some ideas.
I found one ( a quite good looking one ) from Toyota FJ ( 2006 or 2007 model ), but I do not know where I could find them.
Please help.

I know that JC Whitney has them. The might have a little picture of a Jeep on them instead of an Xterra. You probably can also find them at hardware store. They are sometimes used to level (straighten) fence posts, deck posts, etc.

Thank you guys for an input and I'm still open for any sugestions.
I just recieved an e-mail from UK about another one .
There is a link to it :
http://www.speeding.co.uk/acatalog/Sherrill_Compass.html
Looks cool.
There is some data :
The Digital Inclinometer is 65 mm tall 115 mm wide and 55 mm deep It requires two AAA batteries and attaches to the windscreen with suction cups supplied...Auto cut off after 3 minutes standstill & has time display.... easily removed from vehicle to vehicle or to prevent theft...
 
Shipping to Canada on just this item will be 10.00 GBP (Special price) so total will be 99.99 British Pounds or approx  CN$197.00
 
It really is a well made piece of kit

Interesting. Don't know if I'd go with one though. The reason that I say that is because there are a lot of times that you will be stopped for more then three minutes at a time especially if you are running a technical trail or if you have a lot of trucks. Remember that everyone likes to stop and get pictures of their rigs in action. Just having to turn that thing on all of the time is a PIA to me. Also if you forget to keep spare batteries with you and it dies then you're out of luck as well.

Dan said what I was going to say, so all I have to say is YEA! And the one like what is pictured above cost's like $11.00 US We have 2 so we can see tilt as well. Always works, no Battery. Easy to take a picture of if you are SO inclined! :bounce: Pun!

Out of curiosity, what kind of angles have you guys gotten while wheeling? I know I havn't done anything close to what I've seen in some pictures.

I've had my truck up to 30 degrees at one point in time. The other day I got to 25 but couldn't get out since I had the wheels turned to sharply. I got one pic at about 20 degrees from the last trip this past weekend.

Your right probably about 30-35. I went up higher and it was at more of an angle but I didn't get a good side shot. It is still the most I have probably went up! :tongue:

Check the trees and you'll figure out the real angle...
Yeah yeah and I once caught a fish <----this----> big! I did have it a little steeper but I didn't get a picture of it. I have the coffee stain to prove it.

That's impressive. How about to the side? Curious as to how far they can go before tipping.
See my post above. You can all the way to 47 degrees before the thing will tip over. I know that this is a first gen pic but this is the extent of what 45 degrees will look like if you ever get that far. :D

I haven't pushed my X that far. I think it is a fear factor from having to hang on to the window so I wouldn't kick my driver in the facewhile he traversed some crazy ass hills in a HMMWV (High-Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle)...(Where is the chicken smilie)

I was here at 22 and thought I was about to roll over. I feels much harder riding than what pictures show.
