Any of y'all have a preferred place for mounting a tilt gauge? Any particularly preferred style of gauge by those who have been mudding awhile?

You don't need tilt gauges for mudding. Rock crawling and hill climbing yes, mudding no.

Yes, that's my roll-angle gauge reading 40 degrees. Been there, done that, and more...

Should have taken a picture out your window at the same time. Cropped pictures of a gauge don't mean anything. :iceslolan

I've got one in my glovebox. I thought I wanted one, but then I realized I shouldn't be looking at a gauge while I'm at some extreme angle. I go for feeling (and yeah, I know that sounds like bragging), but as you get more comfortable with your truck you can tell what it's capable of and don't need a gauge to tell you. I used to be a bit freaked out with offcamber stuff, but you learn to lean with the roll, and not resist it. Also, I love 2 wheel tilts (opposite front and rear wheels on ground then weight transfers to the downhill wheel). That stuff used to freak me out, but as you practice you realise your truck can handle more and more and you start looking for places to play.

Uh...sorry that really didn't answer your question did it. :headshake
