NEW TRUCK! What gauges?

So what is the gauge set that most people are running now? I have a set of Autometer gauges in my OBS truck, but I would like to put a set in my 2001 F-250.
I keep seeing degital sets and some that plug into the OBDII Port.

Also this used but new to me truck has ZERO mods that I can see...

Does it have a CAT stock?

Are the Brake Rotors supose to have slots cut into them stock?

The ones that plug into the OBDII port are the scan gauges, Joey from terminator engineering has them.....


AS far as I know you shouldnt have a CAT, and if you do, cut it off

Re: NEW TRUCK! What gauges?

If were just talking about a nice set of guages, I bought mine from ITP... The pillar came assembled... Trans, Pyro, Boost and all the neccesary tubing, wire and sensors. It was a pretty easy install and the guages look and work great. Dennis at ITP had the pillar that came with the kit painted the same as my interior so it matches just right. Just my 2 cents...
