I didn't like the bland look of the Isspros. The EGT was the standard black face, colored lettering type, and it just looked like it belonged in an old dump truck. The Boost was the same face design, but it didn't even match the EGT. The worst thing was I couldn't see the gauges at night. Even when experimenting with different bulbs, LED's, etc...I still could barely make out what the gauges were showing at night. They were very accurate, but just lacked any visibility and modern looks. I know Isspro makes their EV gauges, that are supposed to light better, and match factory gauges better, but the prices are stupid high for a basic looking gauge.

I also don't like the Westachs. They look like aircraft gauges and don't mix well with the trucks factory gauges.

The main reason I was looking at the Glow-Shift gauges other than their cheap price, was the fact that their 7-color design, with the black face, would allow me to match the factory gauges a little better than anything else out there.

I never seen DiPricols, but after a glance on their website, I'm very interested in their Optix gauges...they look pretty damn nice.

looks aint gonna keep your motor running!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!i think everybody on here would agree that the autometer ultralite is one of the most popular and that they look great whith the silver faces,and with the black on silver they show up good at night,just cause they don't turn bright pink don't mean you should turn them down!!!!!!besides you can't hardly see the glowshits in the daylight.

Yeah I always ran Ultralites before and loved them ...I traded some turbo parts for the Isspros, so bleh. I'm already over the Glow-Shifts. For $79 more I can get the Autometer Ultralite 3-gauge combo with triple pillar pod, and for $89 more than glowshifts I can get the DiPricol Optix 3-gauge combo with triple pillar pod. So it'll be between those two.

I got a trip to Vegas coming up so I can't spend any money right now, will have to wait til next paycheck.

Thanks for the input fellas.

i've had dipricols on several rigs. they are my preference. however i think you will find getting the dipricols is gonna be tough now. something is going on within their company to make availability a bear.

was hoping glowshift wouldve been good quality. price is hard to beat.
