    There is actually a 4 gauge pillar pod available if desired. Try to avoid Glow Shift if you can afford it.

    IDI but an OBS nonetheless. I've got oil pressure, trans & coolant temp on the pillar with EGT & boost offset to the left in a pod on top of the dash. Working well for driving/towing by EGT.

    I would go with electrical gauges. You don't want high pressure oil in the cab of the truck.
