As long as its a good quality gauge digital or analog doesnt matter.

Ask far as accuracy between the two. My CTS is usuallly spot on with my analog trans temp gauge

I gave up on digital gauges after numorous LED failures. They were Cyberdynes. The LEDs would gradually burn out one at a time till I was guessing what the readout was. This was on my old 6.9. Thought I'd give them another try 10 years later so I got their voltmeter for my 7.3, LEDs began to fail after only a couple weeks!

I like analog (mechanical) gauges. A needle high or low on a scale will tell me more with a quick glance than just a number.

Yep you are right about that. I can remember when I had my digitals I would always be looking at the numbers however when there's a lot going on in the cab and on the road I would find my brain did not always process the information, or I would just keep thinking the number like when you are trying to remember a tape rule measurement while walking around looking for your saw. With the analog you just get used to how they read and you will notice anything abnormal at a glance.

I don't know anything about Glowshift gauges, other than they look cool and I was tempted to get them.
