Pillar Gauges for an '08 F-250

I recently updated my XRT Pro from H&S and I have been reading about how people are adding pillar gauges to monitor the higher power in their trucks. I am not sure which ones to get. If anyone has any insight or advice on what gauges would be best that would be greatly appreciated!

I was contemplating doing a triple gauge consisting of: Boost, Tranny temp and the EGT gauge.

Thanks!

Got a pic? I'm thinking of ditching the tuner for monitoring, I think I'd rather look at real gauges and keep my mini maxx safe from thieves at home out of the truck.

I'd be interested in looking into doing that too. Sometimes I feel like my monitor takes away from the true 'diesel spirit' of old were everyone had pillar gauges.

I want a triple pod because they look cool. Just not in the budget just yet.

Yeah I'm with you on that one. It would be one less reason for someone to look into my truck.

I am about to upgrade from my SCT Livewire and use an Edge CTS for monitoring for the reason stated here. I look for tuner theft to become an issue when idiots see what these things are selling for now...
