would like additional gauges, what mounting options do i have?

i would like to add a few more gauges to my truck but have only seen the A-pillar mounting option. i use the handle that is mounted there too much to take it out just put gauges there. is there another "pod" option for a few more gauges? are there certain gauges that are available or can i pretty much add whatever i want. i was surprised these trucks didn't have a volt gauge or an oil pressure gauge. where's a good place to buy these types of things?

I've seen a lot of electronic gauges you can plug into the OBDII port and monitor whatever you want.

i hadn't thought of that. would something like that come from the "usual suspects" of tuner dealers?

There are all kinds out there. Just to name a few Banks IQ, Edge Insight CS or CTS Dashdaq etc. They're not all tuners. Some are monitors only, like a code reader that displays everything

i googled the edge products, that CTS looks pretty sweet! the price without looking very hard looks to be about $400.00.

the banks iq also looks great but it's $600.00. OUCH!

I would love to do a monitor instead of a tuner.

I have no desire to do tunes on my truck, the only exception being if the DPF needs to be replaced, I'll do a delete and have to tune at that time.

Any way I did a quick and dirty search and found one by SCT for about $150 called the dash scan data monitor and Performance calculator on extremediesel.com

It might be worth the money, I'll do a bit more looking and maybe buy one or something similar.

I love my Edge CTS for my F350. The monitor does not create a blindspot by being up on the pillar.
