Gauges are a good idea for a stock truck. Definitely not a waste of money.

Gauges are a must!!!! Even when tuned stock, there are things to be monitored in order not to run into big expensive issue.
Things to consider about owning a 6.0L

If you choose to ignor what has been posted in the above link, you won't be able to ignor the costs of the repairs.

Old school analog gauges can be. But the ScangaugeII or Edge Insight CS/CTS is a "plug & play" into the OBDII port.
