Good to see some love for the 1st gen in the aftermarket.

The thing is though that when the average Joe sees gauges on the pillar or dash, they think it's time to race and your sleeper status is gone.

Boy, you're running the chit out of that poor truck, Ellis :lol: ;)

That's why all of mine got moved, two are on top of the steering column, and the other two are in the cargo light switch location.

DP, why 5? EGT, boost, trans temp, what else do you need?

Not really, the CR trucks don't have the fuel problems that the VP pump trucks had. If he's just being cautious I understand, but they aren't really necessary.
