it is def easy enough to do it yourself ... just find some directions for a little help online and if anyone is close enough that has done it before maybe they would be willing to help you out.

Gauges intstall for like 300 bucks. Its all super simple. Hardest part is drilling and tapping the manifold for your EGT probe

I posted this on your other thread, but just in case you miss that one.

Check out Diesel Performance at DieselManor, Inc. - Taking the Mystery out of Diesel Performance™ and find their install instructions. They have detailed instructions and pics. to help you out. Hardest part is drilling the manifold for the EGT gauge but you could do the entire install and take the truck to someone and have that done.

as long as you have, or know someone who has the right drill and tap equipment and sizes you will be fine doing it without paying someone. if you know someone that has them in there truck that could give you a hand def ask them for some help.

do it yourself and save some $$$! Its not a hard job to do. As stated above, drilling and tapping the exhaust manifold is the hardest part.

The diesel manor directions are what I used when I installed them in my 2000.
It's really not too bad installing them.
