What Kind Of Gauges

Was wondering what kind of gauges i should get for the truck? I have some banks gauges in it that came with it. I am about to get a chip from DP Tuner so i am looking to get a trans temp gauge also. i dont like to purchase from banks because everything i have seen seems overpriced. also if i get different gauges will i have to completely rewire the new ones or will they be able to hook up to the banks gauges? thanks for whatever help i can get.

Re: What Kind Of Gauges

I really like my Autometer Ultra-lites. The night lighting is poor, but I made up for that with the purchase of the AM LED's. The Banks gauges may have a different wiring harness in them, I am not sure, but most of my AM gauges came with a wiring harness. Here is a pic for ya

Re: What Kind Of Gauges

I have ISSPRO gauges and like them. They are simple and not "blingy". The only thing I'd change about my gauges is the lighting. I'd like it to match the factory green.
