Default Guage Pods

I have a 95 ram 1500, 5.9 360. I was looking in to the guage pods the mount on the left side next to the windshield because i have seen them before and like the look of them. I found the pod itslef but could not think of three guages to use that i dont already have in the factory dash. I was wondering what guages you guys would recommend. Thanks, Matt

depends, is your truck stock? what mods do you have? that will determine what we will say. IMO i think they look kinda tacky on a stock vehicle, but your not asking about mine.... Post up your current or planned future mods and we can go from there

NEVERMIND I just saw how much this gauges are. Over $100 a piece and some over $200. That's just crazy.

Those weren't cheap, close to 700 bucks for the gauges and pillar pod but Auto Meter has gauge lines for every budget.
Just check their website and scroll through all they offer....you'll find something for your taste and budget I'm sure. As far as what to monitor....there's a ton of options there too.
