TeraFlex Geez I'm gone for a few days and miss all the fun.

kjeeper10 The thread is reopened. If you have a question for Teraflex, ask.
If you have nothing to add or want to crap on a very respected company ... MOVE ON.
Last night was unnecessary and won't be tolerated going forward.

kjeeper10 Well ok .... I think this one needs a break.

I don't think anyone is bashing Teraflex. We all here know they make quality parts. The complaint is the price and it is well justified. There are many Inclinometers on the market that are not apps and are a quarter of the price or less. I had a quality one a few years back that I had on the dash that cost $20. Never really used it so took it out. It would be too expensive even at half that price. It is more like a $40 item at best. I respect all their products but this is way overpriced.

Good job Teraflex ! ! !


For the record, I have the android app, the ipod/iphone app, and the dashmount Rampage inclinometer (Quadratec Part No: 94050.0010) and aside from the rampage, they are slow, they dont keep up, they LAG badly, and since my Jeep does not, that makes them dangerous

Yes, $180 is expensive, so is your Jeep.

jrussblues If you don't like technology, go ride a horse. Its amazing to me how many people get offended by new technology or gadgetry. Its also funny that people complain about mall crawlers. Someone wants to build a show jeep that never sees offroad but could spank 95% of the jk's on this forum if it did...well I can respect that. As for the inclineometer, I think I'm gonna get one just for kicks...why not? Got one in my LJ, its old school and has kept me from flipping that one twice.

socal-jk So...... where do you find the degree where your Jeep plays dead..... to make sure you don't go past it? I got the app on my phone and its good for scaring the shit out of your friends. As far as this, some people just want all tbe gadgets and have the money to buy them.

I think for most softer wheeling, the cell phone app works. For harder core type wheeling, the benefit is there.

The TeraFlex also wont go flying out of its holder when you bounce too hard.
Ummmm no. I dont know of one rig built for hardcore wheeling by someone with exp that has on of these(that is not there for a joke). When shit gets serious most people are paying 100% to the rig and trail, not looking at a gage that only tells a small amount of what is going on.

I have seen group leaders make new guys take these out of there jeep after a few trails so they would stop staring at them insted of paying attion to what is going on.

And who the hell wants something like this beeping at them when things get iffy. I can scare the other people in my jeep with out spending 180 bones on this.

It amuses me. I'm always messing with it while watching TV. The alarms go off and my wife just rolls her eyes and shakes her head.

Mine doesn't shake and it very accurate. I also do t have to look at it it has different sounds for whatever pitch or angle your at so you know without looking at it.

Matador I love Teraflex as a company. Generally they are right on point with most of their stuff. Sometimes the pricing gets a little whacky, so I'm hoping that I missed something with this thing that would justify the price tag.

County98 Wow. $180? Really? Pass for me. Sorry, but to me it's a $40 gadget. No offense to those that will enjoy it.
