99-07 FORD F250 F350 TRIPLE GAUGE PILLAR POD 00 01 02:eBay Motors (item 350207605852 end time Jun-27-09 16:05:59 PDT)

I know the glow shift gauges are crap but this gauge pillar will be fine right? I'm not going cheap on gauges but I will go cheap as possible on the gauge holder!!!

The sweepjust refers to how far across the gauge your needle and numbers go. I have a short sweep tranny gauge, and I wish I had gotton the full sweep. A full sweep gauge will fit more numbers, therefore give a more accurate reading IMO.

I would reccomend the DiProcol Optix series gauges with the black face and black bezel. It is THE closest look to your factory gauge cluster. Here is a day pic of mine. I can't find my night shot. I will go take another one.

I got the ISSPRO EV2's because they match great with my 04 dash. Grey a pillar, Black gauge, Black bezel, orange pointer and green led back light.

Good luck on your hunt. There is an old thread with pics of gauges I will see if I can find it. That might help a bit more

I prefer full sweep for the look. It's matter of opinion. You would not go mechanical on fuel pressure or oil pressure. That could be messy in the cab if there was a problem.
Other than that, It's all up to what you want.
