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:woot:

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. :haha

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

thanks

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. :hump

I dont think you need a tranny gauge with a gear jammer. Most guys will block that spot in the pillar ( you can get a painted to match cover for your pillar) then add Rail Press or Lift Press down the road. being that your clutch is where your heat is going to be I see no reason for a trans temp.

Lift press is what most guys run... Now if you tune it a go way BIG fuel tunes the RP for sure. right now to save come clams you could get by with just boost and pyro. I know someone has a new fuel filter cap with a port it in for the sender to go into. You will need to get an isolator to keep fuel out of the truck cab, then run antifreeze on the cab side of the isolator. I also think the is a test port on the truck somewhere you could tap into.
