Good gauges?

Hi guys!


Since gauges will probably be our first purchase for the truck, I'm wondering what particular ones I could get. Brand and type (Mechanical, Short Sweep, Full Sweep, Digital) that is. Basically, is a group of 3 Autometer GS series gauges from EGauges, a mechanical 0-35 psi boost, a short sweep 140-300 degree Trans Temp, and a 0-1600 degree full sweep Pyrometer for $300 a good deal?

I can only look around so much before I have to ask the Strokers who have done this sort of thing before.


Thanks!

The package doesn't include pods or mounts, unfortunately. We're looking to get an under-the-dash triple mount, in the same beige color as the Lariat's interior. Just have to move the electric trailer brake the previous owner put down there.

I think 300 is too much for just the gauges and no pod.

PM Raul about a price quote on what you want. He includes pod and can even get you paint so the pod will match.

I am not allowed to post a link as they aren't a sponsor but Google kensperformancesolutions Ken sells the high quality Isspro gauges, all three, with pod and complete install kit with every connector, and wire you will need to install for $300 shipped. Tell Ken that Kevin/NCHornet sent you. This is a special deal he gives to my forum friends. The Isspro are the highest quality Gauges you can buy, AM has more styles but I much higher return factor. The Isspro's will match your factory units perfectly.
