Angry gauge for coolant

ok b4 ever one says get an aftermarket gauge or dont trust it, i just want to know how hard is it to remove the gauge when the cluster is already out and how off are they in *f for accuracy?


and if it is that much off or not worth replacing, were can i get good gauges that will go in a a pillar mount.

im looking at coolant, tranny temp, and egt.

plus i would like to have the pillar the same color as my interior.

You could always talk to Raul or DIESELMANOR.com. The AutoMeter Z series are the cheapest money can buy. Also; both sell the interior paint you need to match your a-pillar to your interior. I got mine from DIESELMANOR.

If you get one from a JY, they are easy to replace... I've done it before.

LMC Truck Parts - Page 43

lmc has the stock gauge set but it comes with the oil gauge for 199 total and looking at 2 sites for the a pillar gauge custom set comes to 450+
