...uh, is that a metric nut or an SAE nut?

Anywhere in the USA or Canada. Canadian buyers should note their orders ship from inside Canada, and will not be subject to duty or collection fees. (GST and sales taxes will apply.)

Every time I get the money to buy one, something comes up. Go figure. I'm in the process of slowly saving for one again, though. I've got like $30 saved so far.

That actually depends on what country you're in, I'd think.

Why would anyone read this thread and click your sig for $150 when JCW is selling them for $127 ????
I'm no mathemagician but 127<150...........
So much for our much touted "group buy discount".

Scan guage not available

I would love to have a scanguage but am advised that the 97 ranger is not compatible. The scan guage folks do not feel it is cost effective to modify their product. I am not convinced that the other options availabe do not work as good a the scan guage.

Why would the '97 (OBD-II) Ranger not be compatible with the (OBD-II Compatible) ScanGauge?

Even if it were not compatible, you could sell it on eBay for what you paid less shipping costs, or even return it to wherever you bought it. It's not like you're out $140...

I put that JC Whitney coupon in and shipping was not free. $127.99 then $20 shipping. There is another code to enter in order to get free shipping, but it only allows one code per order.
