I was especially stoked to find a manual Laramie sitting on the dealer lot tucked away in the back. Those gauges are the ISS-PRO EV2 max visibility ones, gen 4 factory match.

The mount H&S sells is called the overhead mount, I saw it on Diesel Power's project "Spoiled Nasty" build and though after that: to hell with sticking it on my windshield. It's kind of a PITA to install because it goes up into the headliner, but if your going to do the A-pillar gauges you'll be routing the wiring through there anyways so its best to kill two birds with the same stone and do the overhead mount and A-pillar gauges at the same time.

I used to drive an '08 Silverado so I know what its like coming from a half-ton to a diesel. I don't wanna be a bad influence but its totally worth it. 33" tires on the 5.3L vortec got me 17.3L/100K. My fully deleted Cummins on 35's gets 13.0L/100KM hiway and 15.0L city (and thats still bagging it) I love to crack the throttle.
Yeah I was in highschool when the style came out too.. But shit there isn't a chance I am gonna be able to afford one of them until I hit up Fort Mac with a fully paid co-op... I drive an f350 and a 98 cummins at work.. Just a whole different level.
