gauges or insight...?

I have a 2004 and I have been reading that the EOT on the edge insight does not work. I use my truck as a DD and only tow every once and awhile. I hope to get a fifth wheel trailer in the next year or so, so I will start towing more. I like the edge insight cs becuase it does a lot and it is just one guage, the part I dont like is that I am pretty sure it will get stolen out of my truck in the area I live in, so I will have to either remove it each day and reinstall it each day, but I am lazy so I would forget and thats when it would get stolen. I could try to hide the insight, but then it is not easy to read while driving. So I am leaning towards the 3 gauge pod A-pillar, becuase that is less likely to get stolen and they are easily read, but the downside is that it is only 3 gauges. What 3 guages would be recommended for a DD, that tows occassionally, with an automatic transmission? What would you guys suggest the edge insight or 3 gauge pillar? Thank you for the help.

first i would get a kick *** alarm connected to a train horn.
second if you go with a pillar go EGT/TRANS/EOT since your dash reads boost or does it? I seen alot of different locations for the insight and the cts, ill post pics of my install tomorrow for the cts. the train horn is a good idea, i mounted mine under the bed next to the cab on the frame with onboard air and wired the train horn to my regular horn so when the alarm goes off the horn does . and if you ever see a hott chick walk by your truck you can always give her a nice toot haha

Edge Insight! I monitor Boost, ECT, EOT, EGT, TFT, and Speed. Can't beat the price and be able to monitor all of that. Of course, you can monitor up to 8 parameters if wish. Like everyone else, I'm hoping that edge will come out with the fuel pressure and the turbo timer fairly soon.

I was told my Edge the fuel pressure and others are coming out first of the year.

Definately go with the CS or CTS, much cleaner look and more monitoring for the $$$.
