Overhead Console Gauge Panel $20!

Just want to share a link with everyone. I have seen a lot of threads about people looking for and overhead gauge console and auxiallry switches. Here is a console panel that has both. Most are drawn to the PPE. Here is a link to an inexpensive alternative for those that are interested. These can be configured in a number of ways with a number of options.

AVS::Air Suspension::Gauge Panels::99-06 GM Overhead Console Gauge Panels

I am ordering this for the rig so I can rune my Boost/EGT gauges. Also going to add some angle rings to make it easier to see them.

Very nice. I have been looking for something like that to put in my truck. I didn't want to do a pillar set up because someone might realize I have some work done to my truck and think they want my truck.

For sure. I'm looking for the right gauges right now. It's a tough call, I want looks and quality. Any ideas? I've looked at most every gauge out there and i think I'm leaning towards the GlowShifts. Any reason I should reconsider?

From what I have read, GlowShift is the cheep way out. Personally, I would go Autometer.
I have always LOVED Cobalts, so thats what I picked for my boost gauge.

I went ProComp Ultra Lights in my Camaro

If you want them to last longer than 6 months, DO NOT buy the glowshift gauges. I know too many people that have tried the cheap way out and kicked themselves later when their gauges quit working and my Autometer still work perfectly.

have had their boost and egt gauges for 4 years and neither have missed a beat, the fuel pressure which i got a year ago has had some issues tho. but i will say they have sent me two new fuel pressure senders when the others broke... good customer service

I havnt ordered mine yet, but i think the glow shift tow max looks pretty nice, and ive had glow shift in the past. The tow max have both a needle and a digital reading. Pretty cool
