    WOW hardcore 15" screen aproach I like it. Looks kicking rad. I noticed you have CPU temps in the upper right corner. What software are you using?

    Motherboard Monitor is used to get the temperatures.

    Then I use Coolmon which allows you to position the temperatures anywhere on screen with transparent backgrounds or different fonts or whatever. Coolmon just gives you more control with where and how you want to display the temperatures, but you need motherboard monitor to actually pick up the temperatures.

    Thanks!

    Now that is a nice install !

    Never thought of using a NewQ for radio, that's a pretty good idea.

    Yeah, I originally purchased a D-Link FM Tuner and was less than impressed with it's quality and reception. The NewQ works great, and gives me a nice interface for volume / equalizer functions since I'm not using a headunit.

    Churnopol - There were about 250,000 kilometres on it before we took it off the road last year to restore it. The new engine we've put in was out of a full size Chevy pickup and had 100,000 KM on it. The transmission came out of a Blazer and I'm not sure how many KM were on it.

    Since rebuilding it I've only put about 100 KM on it, and thats an estimate because it turns out the odometer in the new speedo doesn't work.

    I was driving downtown on the weekend and I unintentionally hopped onto someones wireless network, which was pretty cool. I had wireless internet for about 20 seconds.

    Awesome I have used motherboard monitor before. Have you ever looked into samurize It uses MBM put I personally think its much better than coolmon.

    Nice looking Jeep!

    Is your giant screen removeable?

    (however that mess of wires coming out of the back of the computer looks like an accident waiting to happen)

    osirisdon - I'd never heard of Samurize, Coolmon definately wasn't the most straightforward application to configure, I'll probably have to give Samurize a look.

    DodgeCummins - The screen is not removable. It's acutally mounted as securely as possible. If someone were to get into the Jeep to try to remove it they would have a difficult time. Hopefully with the high end security system we've installed nobody will ever have the opportunity to try.

    The mess of wires in the back would be an accident waiting to happen, but I don't have a back seat installed yet so nobody is back there. Eventually the wires will be all tucked away..

    Looking really nice. I have been going back and forth if I want to install my NewQ in my carputer. The ONLY thing holding me back is the automatic shutoff the unit has after a few minutes of no or low audio. Have you had any issue with this so far? I is just annoying to me, that I have to turn something back on every once in a while.
    Could you mention your power setup and if have you had any noise/grounding issues? Thanks for doing such a slick install, always good to have someone else's experiences to look to.
