glow shift gauges?????????????/

Hey guys im about to order some gauges for my truck...boost, pyro,and trans temp. Also i have found some including a pillar for roughly 200 bucks! They are made by glow shift

Has anyone heard of these? If so are they any good?

What gauges are you guys running and what are your suggestions?

Thanks

I haven't heard a lot about glowshift from the diesel crowd. I myself run Autometer C2s. Most diesel guys run Autometer, Isspro, and Di Pricol. Maybe someone with first time experience will chime in. Since the gauge it's self in not truck specific you could open another thread in the parking lot and get a little more traffic, or have a mod move this one so it gets more traffic.

I have seen the glowshift gauges in a few fords. I was thinking about getting them for mine. They are a good price, you really cant beat them. Ive heard they are pretty accurate but ive also heard they arent very accurate. Mixed reviews

First off, Neels c2's are sick!
Second, I have heard the glowshifts are lackluster at best when it comes to their accuracy. A few guys I use to race cars with ran them and they all ended up going back to autometer.

Thanks Man! may be a little costly but I like them....Your phantom IIs are good looking too.

I do think C2 gauges are the best out there, no doubt about it. Just so damn expensive

I have wonderful set of those GlowShift gauges sitting in my garage. Have you seen the 7-color LED models? Well, those 7 colors are all RED!! I would avoid them unless you can get them for half what they cost or less.
