Tachometer

Okay for you lucky truck guys, you probably have no need for another tachometer but for us Van guys....I need a tachometer.

How hard is it to install an aftermarket tachometer and does anyone have a suggestion....I'm not looking for a big ricer unit or something that's the size of a pie plate. Just something to know what the engine is turning....

You'd have thought for $30K+ the cheap ba@#$ds would have put a tach in all the diesels.
