Default Which Gauges should I put into my 91 Sonoma

I Purchased a 2 gauge pillar pod for my 91 Sonoma. I want a tach and a trans temp gauge. The Sonoma has the volt, water temp and oil pressure gauges stock.

The Summit gauges will cost about $70 shipped to my door. I can pick up the Auto Meter gauges for around $160 locally.

I am getting ready to make a pillar pod for the Bonneville so I wanted to install gauges in the Sonoma to see what I am up against and to get some experience installing the gauges.

DOH WOULD HELP IF I PUT IN THE LINKS TYO THE GAUGES!

I will do the truck pic in a while. The pillar has not arrived yet.

I agree with the extra bucks, That is why I priced out the Summit gauges. For around $100 I can upgrade to a tach and a trans temp gauge.

While I agree that the Auto Meter ones will match better, I say save the $ and go with the Summit, which will still look very nice.

Pink?




Nope just a faded burgandy. The truck is a 91 with 111K on the clock. I hope to get 150K additional miles before it dies.
