For gauges, I like the Autometers myself, definately worth the price to me.

What are you looking to monitor though, an Edge Insight CS/CTS or ScangaugeII, may work out better in the long run for you.

for a 6.0L you cant beat the edge insight CS or CTS....

if you want pillar style gauges the Isspro EV2 setup is great as well

You'll need to buy the CS pillar mount, and then the CTS adapter for it.

I like the look of the pillar gauges but I like how I can monitor multiple different things with the edge insight but I don't know much about that so I'm kinda nervious about getting that

The Edge (or any of the electronic monitors) can monitor the existing sensors in the engine (or vehicle). It can not monitor things that have no existing sensor such as exhaust gas temp or fuel pressure without adding a sensor that the electronic monitor can read.
If you want an electronic monitor that can monitor many many things, and is fairly cheap to boot, the scangfauge2 is hard to beat. $165 bucks at most autoparts stores and you can program it for all kinds of things that you can not get on the Edge products.
