    Sorry to hijack the thread, but have similar question. Does someone have any experience on Performance digital gauges? They only seen to have Facebook page which I can't use or contact, since I'm not on Facebook. https://m.facebook.com/performancedigitalgauges/?ref=page_internal&mt_nav= . They seem to have pretty cool looking gauge setup for the obs, especially the one that replaces the stock wait to start panel with extra gauges you want.

    In in the process of finishing this, but I deleted my ashtray and an autometer triple gauge mount fits perfect!! I also ordered some gauge angle rings to put them towards me at the angle I like.

    Is that Jeff guy and that performance digital gauge the same? Their work looks the same. Glad that someone is doing this kind of inventing for these trucks too...
    @dkleind0110, that radio, what model it is?. I've been thinking of buying sometime like that to mine also. Would be great to be able to have updated navigation onboard all the time...

    Here’s something I’ve been working on, this one will replace the wait to start and electric 4x4 button spot with a small 4.3” screen, screen can have many pages so gauges on one, buttons on another etc..

    this a 3.5” but a 4.3 fits better

    Joying 8 inch single din head unit, got it on Amazon. Great way to get the big screen without cutting the dash up. My

    Here are my gauges in my '85. Isspro EV2. 2" abs fits 2" gauges. I cut the abs at an angle (22 1/2) I am non AC so used one AC spot for water temp. I tapped my oil pressure from galley port on drivers side behind oil filter, just in front of trans adapter. My engine was rebuilt, so no crud was behind the plug, but there may be on a typical engine,

    This one is kinda neat. When you first turn on the key it gives you a voltage check. Then after about a minute it switches to a pressure gauge. And lest you get confused there is a small red LED that is on when it is a volt meter. This is sold as an oil pressure gauge but I am using it for fuel pressure.

    And these measure both voltage and current in a very compact package. I put them on alternator outputs. This vehicle has two alternators and two sets of batteries.

    Two alternators what kind of vehicle is that on?

    Different question with all the different gauge setup is there a certain reading like digital or analog instructions as where everything should be as in normal. reason I'm a novice at guessing where things should besides the stock gauges that are funky some times.

    Have you been running the CN speed gauge long? Are you using any of there other gauges? Are they any good?
