How many PSI Fuel Pressure Gauge should I buy

I am getting ready to purchase a set of gauges for my 350. I am getting a boost, pyrometer, and a fuel pressure gauge. I am looking at Autometer or Isspro. Input on either brand would be great, but I wondering how many PSI fuel pressure gauge I should get. My truck is stock and plan in leaving it that way unless heaven for bid something big go a muck under the hood so i don't need anything crazy. Thanks for any and all input as I greatly appreciate it. Thanks again.

100 psi will cover pretty much everything you need.

Correct as stated. 60-75 is a general range these trucks like.
I have AutoMeter Z series. They match very nicely.
I'd get a trans temp before fuel, unless it's a manual of course.
Or you could get a quad pod and have all.
