In need of gauges

So I'm almost ready to get my truck on the road I need gauges. I need a water temp and oil pressure gauge because mine do not work. I really would like to get 3 gauges oil pressure water temp and boost. I want to know what gauge company should I go with should I get a gauge kit? I was thinking maybe glowshift gauges I put together a kit and it came to around $168 with everything. What are other good inexpensive companies to look at since I really do need gauges.

I have isspro and love them. Autometer are good too. Like said above get trans, egt, and boost. You should be able to repair your sensors cheaper than buying aftermarket ones.

MOST of the people I have talked to running glowshift have had good luck with them. but not all.
as stated above replacing your sensors is probably cheaper and easier than going all aftermarket.
I am getting a set of glowshifts because they have a perfect match to my dash gauges that really are totally worthless but...

yea OP dont go with glowsh!t , the percent of people who have gad BAD luck with them out weigh the people who have had good luck by a long shot , if you truck has a manual trans you dont need a trans gauge , you should buy a quad gauge pod and get isspro gauges
