Gauges!

Hi guys
I need some gauges and I was looking at the glowshifts but ive heard they suck. So my question is what did you guys do for gauges?? Autometer? And is there a kit where all of them are together like glowshifts? pyro, trans, and boost. Thanks

I actually just installed my glowshift set on this truck. Have had about 3 sets and never an issue, but I know others have nightmare stories. Bang for the buck I guess I will keep using them until I have a nightmare.

Isspro's, IMO better than Autometers as the wiring of them is just to small and that makes for a harder install.

We carry Isspro's

Don't get glow shift I would pay the money and buy auto meter or Isspro. I bought the glow shift triple gauge package because I didn't want to spend more money on nicer gauges and I regret it. The quality of the glow shift gauges is really low especially the wiring they give you. The boost line is absolutely **** it literally feels like a straw you drink out of and breaks super easily. Later on I am def going to ditch the glow shifts and buy nicer ones...

Okay another question. How dangerous is it to not have gauges? I know you need them when you have heavily modified stuff but I dont have nothing right now. If i had a 3" dp, intake, and ww2 would I really need gauges? I dont pull very much and I dont race or anything.

Hundreds of thousands of these truck pull hard every day without gauges, that said its always best to know rather than hope.

The digital gauges are a good option. I run the Aeroforce Interceptor and really like it. It's a clean looking gauge that I have mounted on my steering wheel column. I have it running boost and egt, and then when I tow, I have it cycle through boost, EGT, and Trans Temp. On warm up, I can watch the oil temp rise while I am warming it up on a cold start. I like it.
