Gauges. Help me pick some out.

I was curious to see what feedback people have on certain gauges?
I REALLY like the autometer NV gauges but haven’t seen a lot of people running them. I really want a green backlit to match gauges.

I am basically stuck between these gauges:
Glowshift gauges
Autometer NV gauges
Autometer Autolite gauges


I want to get Boost, Pyro, Trans/Oil Temp with gauge pod pillar mount.

Any feedback or suggestions? The price of the glowshifts are pretty tempting but how are they in comparison to the autometers concerning reliablity

Feedback, comments? Vendors dont be afraid to shoot me a quote

i LOVE my glowshift gauges. i got the 7 color series. they are super cheap, they change colors, they do the same thing expensive gauges do. i couldnt have wished them to be any better......wiring them is a breeze too

Had autometers for years, don't know about those other ones. Autometers will out-last the truck.

thats an opinion, my brother has had all 3 of his autometers replaced...

the lower line autometers i don't believe are any better than the glowshifts, first hand experience and glowshift user here. If i switch it will be to isspro

I run Dipricol Gauges. I like them cause they match the factory gauge cluster better then any other gauge out there IMHO. I've heard people have problems with autometer and glowshifts. Heard the least problems with Isspro and Dipricol. But, since you've got a 6.0 I would probably lean toward the edge CS or CTS, thats probably your best bet.

Just bought the White Face, black bezel, red pointer EV1 Isspro gauges. (40# boost)
You simply cant beat Diesel Manors price. The pod alone is a 50 dollar value.
Its worth the little bit extra to get these over the glowshifts, because my luck and experience every time I nickel and dime myself I settle for crap and have to do it all over again costing twice as much.

I love the way traditional gauges look, but honestly if you want to monitor everything that you should, like EOT, ECT, EGT, trans tempt, FICM voltage etc, the CTS/ CS are your best options or the scangauge too. I just got a CTS and I love it. All I had to do was drill and tap for the EGT and everything else was as easy as plugging it in...

I actually didnt complete my order. I got the traditional ole EDGE INSIGHT for 189.99 brand new on ebay. I am buying the 70 probe for it. You are right, the EDGE is more bang for the buck.
