Good luck....Post pics!!!
Thanks, JS...I did read your thread...surprisingly, not too many out there yet about this unit.

I did buy a wiring unit with the PDM60 that included a dedicated ground, but I'm still thinking where to locate it. In my novice mind, two dedicated grounds would be ideal; one in the rear, and one up near the nose.

I only have one, so at the moment, I'm vacillating over which location.

I did manage to thread my TPMS wire under the tank, though much less efficiently than with tank removal.
