dieselmanor.com always got great prices on complete gauge kits theyre kits come with everything you need no trips to the store at all paint fittings detailed color instructions wire conectors cat got wrong with them check theyre site out for the price it depends on what gauges you go with egt is a must rest are personal choice the 08 has the factory boost and tranny gauges so depends on how you feel about useing thosethe boost reads from your map sensor if your gonna do mods a use a map fooler that wont be right anymore and the oem tranny gauge isnt exact may consider a fuel pressure gauge as well

traded it for an 06 dodge sorry
