Depends on what all you want for gauges and who you want them by, best price is gonna be glowshift, I got all mine for just over $200, then got my 3 gauge pod for like $20 on ebay. Give me a minute and I'll get you a pic of them.

Went and snapped you a couple photos, mine are black 7 color gauges, I wouldn't recommend the tinted 7 color cause if you get some sun on them, you can't read it well because the tint. and please disregard the cardboard box on the windshield, it was bright out and I've got 20% tint, so you couldn't see the dang gauges without it.

gauges off:


Engine at idle:


They're pretty easy to install, if you need help there are several writeups on here for that. Hardest part I had was running my wirse up to the A-pillar, mainly cause I've got 5 12ga wires going to my lights up to. Hope this helps

Running several gauges would be some work but doable. Edge cts can show most of the vital for $400. Its literally plug and play. No brain or labor involved plus trouble code reader. If you want egt is like another $150 I think. And backup cam is about $50 from Amazon.

An Edge will only show what sensors the truck has.
Soooo . . . no fuel pressure, trans temp, EGT. Oh. The important ones.
And running several gauges really isn't bad. I did it once, did it half way, then went back and did it right and took my time. That's the key. I also ran 4 gauges.

Or you could go with better quality and get something like these Ev's that I got from here Isspro Enhanced Visability Gauges for a really good price. You don't mention if you have a manual or auto trans, if you have a manual you don't need the trans temp gauge.

YES!!!! That is exactly what I want. First I just want to say thx a bunch for the replies and photos, very much appreciated. Now how hard would it be for your average guy such as myself to install four gauges I was thinking boost,trans temp, egt, and fuel pressure? Any link to a writeup would be appreciated.

It's not hard at all.
Dieselmanor has an install sheet for 7.3s for the three basic gauges.
For wiring, I laid the pod out, and ran a wire for each and every connection on the gauge I'd need, making sure that I left myself enough wire and to make very good connections. That's the biggest thing: good connections.

I'm on my phone so I can't see where you live but post up in your local chapters forum and see if anyone local can give you a hand. Have a GTG at your place, that's how we did mine. Also, www.kensperformancesolutions.com has a good deal on gauges. 325 shipped and I believe it's $100 more for the 4th gauge and the pillar pod that will hold 4 gauges.

Also, they are ISSPRO EV2 gauges that match the factory gauges and they come with green covers for the bulbs.
