Lightbulb Digital Monitors???

Does anybody know much about these digital monitors? A couple ihave came acrossed are bullydog watch dog, and edge insight. Are these worth the buy, instead of a whole pillar with analog gauges? or should i just go old fashion and get the old style? need help fellas, imsure someone knows something. it just seems cheapier the new digital ones do more from what i have read. Itrust ya'll. Point me in the right direction please..... im a noobe to this diesel thing

my brother had the edge on his 6.0...seemed to work well. you do still have to drill a hole for the egt probe though. also, i'm not sure the edge will work on an obs 7.3...i could be wrong there. I did like the fact that the edge had alert settings to let you know if anything was out of order. If the edge will work on obs trucks, i would like to have one on mind.

Baptist preacher man'94 f-250, fpr shimmed, diy intake, gutted exhaust, 3" down pipe,
96' ecm upgrade
superchips
future mods...
homemade supension lift
injectors
gauges
paint job

how could any self-respecting person drive anything other than a Ford,preferably a diesel. Trying to get my wife to sell the Durango, hopefully an Excursion in my future.

I like the single digital screens myself. It gives you far more information then the old school analog gauges ever will
