Add a trans gauge if you tow heavy. Is this for a stock truck or modded truck. IMO, you can never have enough gauges.

Well if you were to buy 6 of those gauges, "A" pillar pod, and matching paint, along with the time to install them, you could just get a Edge CS to monitor all them except the fuel psi (soon available) and read DTC's plus many more parameters like FICM volts, VGT duty cycle, ect.

Stealth Diesel is one of the vendors on here that sells them.

Expandable you will be able to "daisy-chain" other attachments like a fuel pressure gauge, turbo timer etc. Non-expandable only allows the use of one attachment.
