Yes, it can be fitted after market Jerry. But I'm curious as to why you would prefer TripTek?

The Silver Leaf Electronics VMS120 LC does soooo much more, and it costs about the same ($995.00) Besides trip parameters like Trip history, distance, fuel used, actual MPG, average speed, running time, miles to go, etc, it reads data stored in your Cat's engine computer. You can display (even scan you preference of data), gear selected vs gear attained, transmission mode, battery voltage, horsepower output, torque, rolling MPG, transmission temperature, turbo boost pressure, digital tach, power factor, full engine diagnostics, engine diag history, actual hours on engine since build date, and so much more, like pre-drive checklist, maintenance tracking, etc. and a programmable anti-theft locking system which will prevent someone from starting the engine even if they have the key. (It requires your chosen password to be entered before it will allow engine to start if you program this option).

For more information, e-mail me or go to www.simply-smarter.com for their website.

CaptBill I was with you with the VMS120 until you got to the last item. Entering a password into your trip computer before your key will work is too tempting for Murphy and his laws.

I have gone to the web site and see some other units there. Have you used any of these? Who installs them? They look great just what I would be looking for.

Thanks for the questions. Rich, the password protected engine lock is strictly optional. It's there if you want to activate it, otherwise the engine starts with the key, just as always. All other fearures, and even more that I did not mention, are at your fingertips.

Jerry, you can buy the unit from any authorized dealer (including me), and the unit requires no technical expertise whatsoever to install. It simply plugs into the engine diagnostics connector under the driver's side dash. You will have a (7 or 12 pin) connector with a screw-on dust cap, located under the dash, probably on the firewall just above the floor, in front of the drivers left foot. The only other connections that you might want to make is a connection to the headlight switch. If you make that connection, then when you turn on the headlights, the VMS display will dim to your chosen preset brightness level. I didn't bother with that on the one I installed on my motorhome, because there is a variable dimmer control right on the front on the display. So I can adjust the brilliance any time to any level I like.

The only other thing you will do is either velcro the display box to the dash top or bottom, or install the bracket kit that comes with the unit, for a more secure installation. These units will work with Cat or Cummins.

Yes you can install a TripTek if you have the Sony/rear camera in your Journey. You can buy at www.triptek.net website. The RoadRelay4 sold by Cummins is another good choice at $900. You can read about RoadRelay4 at http://roadrelay.cummins.com
TripTek displays on your Sony monitor which is a selling point. The RoadRelay4 and the Silver Leaf products have a lot more capability.

Don't worry Jerry, you will get the correct connect. They don't use all the positions on the connector block, and there are only 2 connectors. Most applications will take the smaller one (the one you're getting), while Cummins use the 12 pin. Your dealer should have helped you make the right choice. You are sure to love the 200's larger display; that's the one I installed too. The 120 does all the same things, but has the smaller display. Enjoy your new toy!

Jerry, it's mounted to a bracket on the floor or the firewall, left of the steering wheel. Yea, I know about the mile of wires under there. You might have to cut some wire-ties to drop the nest of wires out of the way so you can see it.
