Gauges

I have an '02 F250, I haven't done much to it yet and before I do anything I wanna get the gauges done so I've got them ready. I was wondering about how much I should be looking into spending on a set of gauges, pillar and all?? Any places you could recommend ordering them from?

Thanks

Price depends on what gauges you want and what brand. Dont go cheap with gauges.

A couple hundred $, base price. For guages and pod. And the price will go up from there....


You do get what you pay for though, IMO

I dont think that at all. I will only have the best there is. Whether that means it's cheaper or more expensive. I want the beat because that is me. If you want sub standard that's great. Glow shifts are ucking fugly.

A good set of gauges will run you into the $350-$400 range. That is Autometer and Isspro

I wasnt pointing fingers, just saying in general most here think that the price tag is wat makes the gauge....so wat makes those gauges better??? because u like the looks of them better? I have had glowshift in this truck and my last car, and havent had any problems with them, they work great, and have good costumer service....
