water temp

So I am replacing my water pump, and thermostat (203) and wondering if I should add a aftermarket water temp gauge?

I don't tow that often and I am not tuned up very much....

Thanks for any input!

not necessary, but you could use it to make sure your t-stat is working and when its really cold out waiting til its up to operating temps... I'd reccomend and oil temp gauge while you were at it if you went that route tho.

Running hot isn't too big of an issue on the 7.3, even when towing through Arizona in June. These trucks, when everything is in good working order, have excellent and efficient cooling systems. That being said, I think it's still not a bad idea to add one. I really like to know everything that is going on in my engine and aftermarket guages for water temp, oil pressure and/or oil temp, and fuel pressure are all novel ideas.
