I read this and didn't immediately think of myself as a young kid anymore.

Makes me think when I see the legal age to buy smokes is now born in 1993...

Youre right though, this just adds so much more class than a digital display.

My opinion though....

I like the mechanical route because they are dependable and you don't have to count on an electronic box to be working for your guages to work.

I know I kinda fall in the young group, and as a IT guy Im all about the digital, but I also want to see all the data I can when i need it...and the Digital display on the truck is too cumbersome to see what you need when you needed. yuck.

So I'm saying those gages look sweet and I like them. They only need "red" lines so you dont have to think about what the top end is when you look at them.

Psst....


Youre older than I am...





I like em clean colored. To me the red takes away from them. I know where they should sit at all times and can take it in with just a quick glance. Takes a little getting used to, but wouldnt have it any other way.

What paint did you use for the pillar? (I'm assuming you painted it... I just saw the grey color on dieselmanor site).

No paint. Plastic is already color matched.

Blake,

Please give us some details on vision. Does it create a blind spot? Is it too busy and catch your attention all the time?

Also, did you look at any other locations for mounting gauges to keep the grab handle?


Thanks
JAM

It creates no more of a blind spot than the grab pillar does. I find these gauges to be quite a bit more "low profile" than my 08 setup. Im in the habit of a quick glance and can see what parameters I want, course I ran the gauges on my 08 for a while too.

I never use that grab handle, so its loss it not mourned by me...

Not sure who is making mounts in other locations that look as clean as this though.

Did you see this one? It's from the same company. I have not looked at my truck yet but I'm guessing something is in the way and i wont be able to use it. They make it in 2,3 and 4 gauge.
