Beginner question?

Hi guys!
I have a 2001 Dodge 2500 short bed quadcab with the following mods:
1. ATS transmission with comander module
2. Edge-ez
3. 5" gibson exhaust
4. Oversized injectors, but do not know what kind

I am getting ready to tow a 12,000 pound toy hauler trailer at altitude. I am located in Denver and will be traveling to approx. 10,000 feet altitude. I need to know the best suggestions for a gauge set up that will work with my Edge-ez chip. What will I need to do and has anyone done this? I have been looking at different gauge set ups such as the BD Xmonitor, Quadzilla adrenaline, ISS Pro tripple set and the Glow Shift Tripple gauge set.

Thanks I appreciate any suggestions

If your wanting to up grade your chip i would suggest a edge attitude because it monitors all the gauge readings. but i that is not your plan then a triple gauge pod with trany temp pyro and boost. Those are the basic gauges. PS i do not recommend the quadzilla adrenaline because the fuel curves suck and it doesn't hit the horsepower mark untill about 4000 rpm. They also have hot unlock codes for the edge. so there is my input i hope it helps.

Thanks guys and yes I have a recent new lift pump and injevtion pump. The other thing I have to consider is this is my daily driver. I only drive about 8 miles a day and the truck only has 61000 mls.

Is the new LP a stock pump or aftermarket? If it's stock, watch your fuel pressure really close, or get an aftermarket (Airdog, FASS, etc.) The stock pump will go out again. It's not a matter of if, but when.

well if you want more power then yes upgrade to the edge juice as it has gauges built in and monitors fuel pressure. if your not going for more power a triple gauge pod pyro boost tranny and then add a fuel pressure gauge on the column. and I agree the stock lift pump will die sooner than later
