Hey guys,
Being that the Driveguard is Asymmetrical and NOT directional...

Does it even matter how it's mounted?

Thanks!

Nope. Either way works. The direction arrows will be forward on one side and backward on the other regardless of how you mount it.

Ordered the Driveguard AND will most likely go with a BT45 up front...that HAS to be worth at least ONE cookie...LOL.

Also, got one of the LDL Tire Watch systems from Gary Murphy. I may just solder new batteries in the sensors before installing them...who knows.

And so it begins.

Thanks guys.
