thanks for the responses. i have always used banks gauges down low under the dash area but cant do that with the 08's
i am still debating on where to stick the pyro, heck i cant even make up my mind on whose gauges im buying! if they go on the pillar or higher on the dash i want them to match closely.

Well that I think about those autometer would match my tan interior and tan gauges, I should probably ask what color your stock gauges are? Also with Autometer I believe you can get the back light in different colors, like green on the stock gauges

i have the stone interior, i think thats what ford calls it. its not the tan. thats the one thing i miss from the older trucks. i would prefer my old grey or med flint as it was called i think.
the gauges are the same in all 08's though right? off white/green backlight/red pointer with chrome bezels?
i would like to fabricate a single gauge pod to go where the ashtray is but havent looked into that yet.

No in the base or lower models they are black and in the HD they are blue
