    Does anybody know the part number for the temp gauge? And where to order other than the stealership. Thanks.

    Isn't the temp gauge part of the pcb gauge cluster?

    It is for the compass/temp located by the horn. My 05 didn't come with the unit, so I am using a rear view mirror that I got from the salvage yard. Its all wired, compass works fine, just need the temp sending unit but can't find a part number.

    Hmmm, not to go off track, but do even the trucks without temp sensors have these?

    I thought it was the engine temp sensor, where is that located?

    Just curious because I had to move my horns so they didn't show through my grill.

    09+ should all have it, since it is part of the A/C control hardware. If you plug in an 09+ overhead console it reads the ambient temp from the A/C control computer.

    100% correct from what Ive read. Most models all have the wiring for the sensor, but may not have the sending unit that are 05-09.

    hope that the link i gave helps you out. 12 bucks is a damn good price.
