    Is that a shift light mounted on the side? It looks like it would blind the shit out of you with all those LEDs.

    Unless you are supercharged or turbocharged I can't see any reason why anyone would have aftermarket gauges on a 190HP Tacoma.

    oil pressure would be nice.

    I for one think it is completely retarded for any car company to not put an oil pressure gauge in a vehicle.

    Why not just get a scangauge or ultragauge? They show hundreds of different temps and stuff. Bought mine for $50, works great.

    Thanks for the pics guys! I am just wanting to add a volt and oil pressure gauge because like some of you said I just feel like they are missing. I will probably also add a trans temp and ambient air temp.

    Thought I would give you guys an update on my gauge install. Got them mounted but not wired. Had a slip up trimming the holes with my die grinder, had to repair the dash with a vinyl repair kit. Then had to repaint, so I just painted in between the gauges instead of the whole dash. After all, I only had black paint. What do you guys think?
