Aftermarket dip stick

Does anyone make one for the 6.4? The factory one is so hard for me to read, I hate how its round and plastic at the bottom. I've drained good oil out of my truck twice now because the dip stick had me thinking I was over full.

you are deleted so best bet is to drain oil, replace filter, fill it with 15qts and repeat the process in 5k miles. thats what I do lol.

I'm paranoid about injectors pumping fuel in oil so about once a month I like to check the level just to be sure.
