Default code readers

I know absolutely nothing about code readers, so I need advice.
I have an OBD port somewhere under the dash of my 1998 Cummins. I think it is time to install a Code Reader. I would like to extend the under dash connector to a more readily accessible location. Who sales short extension harnesses with hardware to be attached to the dash. Also, which inexpensive Code Reader works best for a 1998.5 Dodge Cummins Diesel. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Since you have a 24v then I would suggest the ScanGuage. That will give you complete code reading, plus fuel mileage, plus monitor all sorts of systems like oil pressure, rpms, water temperature, battery volts, etc. All you would do is plug the cord into the OBDII connector and leave it there so you can run the ScanGuage. You can certainly purchase other scanners, but they won't have the capability to monitor and provide real time feed back.

You can also buy obd2 extension cables. Just look at the reviews before buying.
