Looking for gauges!?!?

Hey everyone I am looking for a set of gauges to go above my rear view mirror since I like my factory grab handle. I have shopped around and looked at a few gauges but I'm not sure what to get!! I use my truck for both playing around town and pulling weight. Any ideas?? My buddy has a set of GlowShift and I like the idea of having colors behind the gauges but havent heard good things about them

Because there is nothing good to say about them. Spend a few extra bucks and get quality.

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's molded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC on any of it, never will.
Take 3/4 of the info and recommendations on here with a grain of salt

i got 10 of them, and if i had to do it again, i'd either get the ISSPRO or this one...its like a mini AE

And, without using the A-pillar or having it look busy atop the mirror, you can go this route, plus it looks effin SWEET...

Yup..it'll set-off any interior look, look factory. If in the market for gauges, check out that Aeroforce, bud. It has evrything needed for our trucks, PLUS it'll read ICP/IPR duty cycles, buzz test the injectors...etc, along with reading all parameters, coming through the OBD connector. It also has extra "spots" to allow installing of the pyro/egt and fuel pressure readings...Worth it bro, for the 300 buks-ish, you'll pay. Hell, decent gauges will set you back 300 just for 2-gauges.


There's other vids out there, just grabbed the first one.
