Boost gauge?

I am finally going to get some gauges for my truck. I am thinking of getting the ISSPRO EV gauges. The three I am going to get are the Boost, Trans Temp, and Pyro. My question is what Boost gauge should I get, the 30, 40, or 60lb? My truck is pretty much stock except for the DIY intake I just finished doing. But I will be getting a chip after I get the gauges.

I would like the gauges to match the factory look in the interior. Can some of you post some pics of how your gauges look day/night? I have gray interior and I am going to put the gauges on the pillar.

Thanks everyone!

30 would be more than enough at this point.

^^ I agree. Unless you're planning some serious power upgrades in the future.

if you are going with injectors in the future then get the 60... otherwise I would go with the 40. You most likely will not hit 30 with stock sticks... but some guys do break that barrier.
