Erik,

We are a master dealer for GlowShift gauges. For the money you can't beat them. They read the same as the Isspros that I had in my truck. Very nice set of gauges for the money.

If your interested shoot me over a PM and I will get you some pricing on them

I have no real experience with glow shift, I just noticed that most guys run Isspro or Autometer. If I had it to do over, I think I would have done Isspro over Autometer. I really like my Autometer C2s but I like the fact that Isspro does match the Dodge OEM Cluster very well. Autometer has since released a gauge that matches very well too.

I can say that my Autometers seem to work very well, just a note the C2s are really bright, my advice would be to get the stand alone dimmer for them.

I know you mentioned the Big Rig lights.. I would try to get a pic of them on my neighbors ford but he isn't real happy with them... I my self would wait on lights and such and put that money into something else... Just a though.. Also Not sure but I think you can get an Isspro boost and EGT set for a couple hundred.. I would save and do what you want the first time, in the long run if you are not happy with the brand X gauge and by the brand y down the road you didn't save anything. Just my .02s

ya. i literally put the order in for the gauges today about an hour ago and then my buddy called and said a few of his buds had them in his truck and they broke within the first month. so i just called five minutes ago and cancelled the order and now im just kind of pondering what to do. im confused. i mean i WANT the isspro but i dont want the price tag.

and if you could get a pic of his truck that would be GREAT!! i was lookin for a second opinion on them.

thanks
erik

You looked at this?

For the money I think I would give it a shot if I where in your shoes.
Glow Shift 3-1

Its got a decent price on it and Im sure one of our SVs could prolly do better on it.

ya i saw this monster! haha. i was seriously contemplating getting this but then i walked out to the truck and was trying to decide a place to put it (thats not on top of the dash) and i cant really find a spot to my liking. plus the 3 gauge a pillar with gauges and everything is only like 210 bucks and like you said the SV's can (hopefully) get a better deal. haha.
