Glowshift Gauges Question

So I'm about to order a regular 4 gauge package from glowshift then i see the 3in1 gauge that they offer and was wondering if anybody could provide feedback if they have bought one? is it junk? should i buy the regular gauges? is it any harder to install than the reg ones?

I had a three in one and loved it at first but that only lasted about two weeks before it started acting up. It never read boost right and the pyro would bounce around rapidly.

I don't recommend glowshift to anyone. Cheap cheap cheap.

I've run two 3-in-1s. And two three gauge sets in various diesels i have owned.

Only complaint about the 3-in-1 is that the glare without tinted windows made it hard to read in an old 96' I had. All my other had factory tint and they were all fine. From time to time when really cold outside it will not remember the color it was on when shut off. Other than that they were all fine.

I am ordering another set this week for my new 94 PSD hauler.

I've had glowshift gauges (boost,pyro,trans) for about a year now and love them. I have the 7 color series and have had good luck with them. Very easy to install. My buddy has them and his egt gauge stoped working, called up Glowsift and they sent him a new one for free.

My opinion if you havent already bought, dont buy a 3 in 1 for the reason you have already mentioned. They are cheap and you get what you pay for! I have had the 7 series for a yr now and had to get a new EGT because it internally shorted. If it is a 3 in 1 and out of warranty, you have a big pile of junk. With 3 seperate gauges, you could update them later if you want to or replace a bad gauge.
