    These are Nexus gauges. You can program them to "flash" a different color when you get out of your comfort zone. So you do not have to watch them that closely.

    For example, the oil pressure gauge flashes red when the oil pressure falls under 20 psi.

    wat?
    The Ultra Gauge wont read the tranny temp either, but you can set warning alerts for certain gauges that it does read. I think even if they are not on the 18 gauges that you can set to display.

    I plan to leave the power train essentially stock on my truck so I'm not too worried about relying on factory buffered gauges and dummy lights for the critical engine stuff.

    However, living in the mountains and towing in the mountains, I do plan on putting a transmission temp gauge in to make sure I don't cook the ATF.

    The only other one I might want would be a voltmeter so when I'm camping and using the map lights or radio I can keep an eye on the voltage. Or also if I add a light bar and a bunch of auxiliary lights, it would be good to keep an eye on the alternator.
